I heard from a friend, that it is possible to simulate an Arduino hardware with Pspice. There was a demo at an Orcad event in Munich. Can anyone please explain me how this works?
Yes. You can simulate Arduino board with PSpice using Release 17.2 - PSpice device model interface functionality. You need to load compatible code in Arduino using ArduinoIDE to make it work in tandem with PSpice. You can read data from Arduino board - process this data in realtime with rest of electronics circuit being simulated in PSpice.
Thank you for the answer. Where do I get the device model for the arduino? What is the compatible code and where do I get this? From Arduino or from Pspice.com? I did not find it under models / Cadence. Can I read any sensor data in Pspice?
I am Roberto Gandia, specialist for PSpice in Germany and Austria. I have available the Arduino model for PSpice. Send me an E-Mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send you an Application Note how you can use the Arduino Board with PSpice.
I will answer to your technical questions as well.
By the way, your local partner is www.flowcad.de
You should contact your local OrCAD Channel Partner for getting Arduino DMI models etc. This is not yet included with PSpice 17.2 installation. Can you please exaplain what exactly you mean by reading any sensor data in PSpice? If this is getting routed via Aurdino board (interfaces) - Yes you should be able to read that. I don't think this would be limited by sensor type as long as sensor interfaces are compatible.
