Pspice simulation of diode reverse leakage current

  1. I need to vary (with the dev statement) the reverse leakage current of
    a diode in order to do Worst Case Analysis simulations.The problem is
    I can`t find the parameter that controls that current. I know it has
    something to do with Isr and NR, but they don´t affect it directly and
    I have no idea of how they interact in order to model the leakage
    current. I wasn´t able to find a good explanation either on the spice
    manual provided by Cadence or on the internet.
    If someone can shed a light on this problem I would be more than
    grateful.

    Try varing the IS which is suppose to be the reserve saturation
    current. I believe a read that in spice. Vbe from 0 to breakdown is
    modeled or assumed to IS. Try chaning IS.
