Overview

Written as a class demonstration -- with step-by-step screen captures -- this manual shows students how to use the Windows version of the PSpice circuit simulation program from MicroSim with the schematic capture front end, Schematics. Focusing on a wide range of circuits that are studied throughout the engineering/engineering technology curriculum, it features a collection of examples that show how to create a circuit, how to run the different analyses, and how to obtain the results from those analyses. It includes complete software -- allowing students to take a circuit from conception, to circuit simulation, to schematic documentation, to circuit realization (PC board production).

Features

Arranges content by analysis type and provides a wide range of examples -- from circuits covered in a first semester circuit theory course to senior-level amplifier switching circuits.

  • Provides both simple circuits and advanced circuits to illustrate each analysis type.
  • Allows sections that are too advanced for beginning students to be skipped without loss of continuity.

Uses step-by-step screen captures to lead students through the software.

  • Presents screen captures as if an instructor were giving a lecture on the use of the software -- showing intermediate windows and specifying all mouse selections.

Focuses on using the PSpice software to verify calculations or intuition.

Includes PC Board design and layout with Pads Perform.

  • Enables students to layout a schematic graphically, simulate the circuit to verify the design, andthen layout a PC Board automatically.

Includes exercises at the end of each section that give students practice in using the software

  • Exercises specify a circuit and give the simulation results, and ask students to try to use the software to obtain the same results.

Provides all necessary software (on CD-ROM):

  • MicroSim Evaluation Version 7.1 -- Schematics and PSpice.
  • On Line Documentation.
  • MicroSim Evaluation Versions, 5.2 and 6.1 (with fewer hardware requirements).
  • Pads-Perform -- PC board layout software.
  • All Schematic files for examples and exercise.
  • Floppy disk copy files downloadable from the CD-ROM.
