PSPICE Hints and Tips Components (Select Draw>GetNewPart. .. or use Cntl-G) Basic parts GND_ANALOG Ground R Resistor C Capacitor L Inductor CAUTION: “M”, when used as an engineering suffix on things like resistor values, is interpreted as “milli Ohm” instead of “Mega Ohm”!!! The cause of this apparent stupidity is that SPICE generates a “netlist” (a text description of the circuit elements and connectivity), and sends this to the simulator. The simulator was developed in 1970 when upper and lower case was not distinguished by programming languages. It has plagued Spice users ever sense. .. YOU MUST USE “MEG” to get MegOhm. Voltage/current sources VDC Battery/supply VAC Small signal AC analysis source (with DC value too) VSIN Sinewave for Transient (time-domain) analysis VPULSE Pulse train, Step, or square-wave source IDC, IAC, ISIN, IPULSE Current source versions of above. CAUTION: Currents are positive going into a source! (except for IDC sources which show polarity explicitly.) Misc parts POT Potentiometer C_var Variable capacitor XFRM_NONLINEAR
