Note on Lab 4: Diode Circuits II 1. How to create a custom zener diode model We are asked to configure zener diodes to have certain given breakdown voltages (Vb) and currents (Ibv). In particular: Diode part number Vb (V) Ibv (mA) 1N4733A 5.1 49.0 1N4739A 9.1 28.0 In order to configure a zener diode, go the “Place Part…” dialog box, select the BREAKOUT library, and choose DBREAKZ, as shown in Fig. 1.1. Fig. 1.1: Getting a zener diode part. Place the part in the schematic. Right-click on the part, and choose “Edit PSpice Model,” as shown in Fig. 1.2.

The PSPICE model editor should pop-up. Double-click slowly on the model name, as shown in Fig. 1.3, and type in a custom model name. For example, if you want to simulate the 1N4733A zener diode, call it “D1N4733A.” Fig. 1.3 The model name should change as shown below in Fig. 1.4. Fig. 1.4 Now you need to enter the breakdown voltage (Bv) and breakdown current for the 1N4733A zener diode. Enter the information given in the lab 2 handout as shown in Fig. 1.5.
