When considering what simulation software is right for you some good questions to contemplate are, “can it help me accomplish my objectives and goals?” and “how well can the software help me test my design for failures and maximize my performance without increasing costs?" We may be biased, but our answer to those questions is…PSpice.

According to the AIS (American Institute of Stress), 43 percent of working adults suffer from stress. While stress in the workplace can’t always be avoided, there are a variety of coping techniques which work to minimize its effects—these range from deep breathing and massage therapies, to visual imagery and self-hypnosis. Unfortunately, these coping techniques will not help in addressing component stress.

Filters, amplifiers, linear and switched-mode power supplies, and other analog/mixed-signal designs require rigorous verification and analysis to ensure that they will perform to their design specifications. When violation of component operating limits cause failures, or component value (or parameter) variations lead to yield problems, you could face increased costs, missed schedules, or field failures. Cadence® PSpice® analog and mixed-signal simulator and PSpice Advanced Analysis address these issues, simplifying the complexities of mixed-signal verification, performing “what if” analysis, and validating the complete system check for failures.

While the SPICE (simulation program with integrated circuit emphasis) kernel is public domain source code and there are many variants out there, not all SPICE is created equal. While most SPICE software can simulate circuits efficiently, choosing a simulation software requires a bit more consideration. The more important question is "will this product fulfill my ultimate business goals?" Meaning, once you have your waveform and simulation, what else might you need to do with it? How well can you analyze the end result, make changes, etc.

Engineers use a variety of tools and resources to help them evaluate new components for their designs including: demo boards, app notes, co-worker references, FAEs, etc. This process can be tedious and require a lot of work and research to be done outside the standard CAD development environment—most of which cannot be re-used in production.

Here at EMA, we know that time is an engineer’s most valuable asset. Sadly, adding more time to the day isn’t an option, but we are constantly looking at ways we can help our users save time. This is why we created the following keyboard shortcuts cheat sheet infographic for all our PSpice users.
