Cadence® PSpice® A/D is a full featured analog circuit simulator with support for digital elements. It integrates easily with Cadence PCB schematic entry solutions and comes with an easy-to-use graphical user interface that equips the user with the complete design process to help solve virtually any design challenge from high-frequency systems to low-power IC designs. Due to its wide popularity PSpice models with built-in mathematical functions and behavioral modeling techniques are available from many IC vendors.
PSpice® A/D Simulation Technology enables engineers to :
• Understand and explore circuit performance and functional relationships with “what if” scenarios and design analysis
• Simulate complex mixed-signal designs, containing both analog and digital parts to support models like IGBTs, pulse width modulators, DACs, and ADCs
• Improves simulation times, reliability and convergence for large designs
• Improves speed without loss of accuracy via integrated analog and event-driven digital simulations
• Explores circuit behavior using basic DC, AC, noise and transient analysis
• Allows system-level interfaces to be integrated with electrical designs using the PSpice® Systems Option. View the video
• Library selection of 33,000+ analog and mixed-signal models
• Allows for automatic identification of analog and digital signals and automatically applies A-to-D and D-to-A interfaces
• Allows designers to explore design relationships with “what if” scenarios before committing to hardware
• Enables designers to identify and simulate functional blocks of complex circuitry using mathematical expressions, functions and behavioral devices
