    I would to know if it is possible to add components into pspice 9,2?
    I would like to add the LM2587 for drawing a circuit and this part is not
    included in pspice.
    I looked on their web site and there does not seem to be a part list
    database to add to the software.
    So anyone know how or know of a more complete software that does simulation
    ?

    thanks

    Are you using PSpice Schematics or OrCAD Capture? Student or full
    version?

    PSpice allows you to add library components, which although a bit
    fiddly is not really a problem. The simplest way is probably to get
    hold of the necessary subcircuit from the device manufacturer and add
    it with a text editor to one of the existing parts libraries. Then
    borrow a symbol from another op-amp to make the connections.

  5. Yes. The SuperSpice demo allows far more components (30*25=750). It is
    also much, much easier to use. Adding new models is a simle drag an
    drop.

    I'm uncertain, but I don't believe you can add parts to the student
    version.

    Do I have to build what I want from scratch or do I download some file ? if
    so where ?

    Component mfgs supply spice models/subcircuits and IIRC, you can
    just drag and drop them from explorer into SS.
     
  9. Yes.

    For .models symbols are automatically attached, for .subckts, it will
    take you via the GUI to select an existing symbol when you try to place
    the .subckts.

    I believe the original enquiry was for models and subcircuit additions
    to pspice.

    Not SS.

    If you want him to follow your line of thougfht, you will have to
    explain the relationship between the two versions.

  16. Yes. And you point would be?
    Er.. It seemed pretty clear that the poster was asking where to download
    SS.

    ..you will have to
    Why?

  17. Sure you can! I wish he had said which one, though. The process is
    different whether it is Schematics or Capture.

    First, get a model for the part off the web somewhere. There are lots
    of different sources. When in doubt, go to the manufacturer... :cool:

    Give the file a .lib extension.

    In Schematics, go to File/Edit Library. This starts the symbol editor.
    Then, go to Part/Symbol wizard, choose From a model library, and
    follow the instructions.

    If you have Capture, start the PSpice Model Editor, and load the .lib
    you created. Go to File/Create Capture Part, and it will create a part
    for all the models in the library.

    That's it, pretty much...
