PSpice comes with 10’s of thousands of library parts from many different vendors and regions. The sheer volume of parts that you are presented with can make it hard to find the kind of part that you’re looking for. If you know the exact number of the part you’re looking for that certainly makes it easier, but what if you just want to find something more generic without knowing the exact part number?

Most SPICE simulators are really good at simulating circuits and showing you what the outputs will be but, on their own, they don’t do anything to bring attention to components that may be stressed or overloaded.

Getting your circuit to give the results that you want can sometimes be a very difficult task. If you have specific behaviors that you would like your circuit to adhere to or if you have a set of data points that you’d like your output to match exactly, it can be challenging and time consuming to tune your circuit to meet those requirements. The Optimizer tool in PSpice Advanced Analysis makes quick work of these types of problems by using its solving engine to get right to the results that you need.
