Algorithm to Implementation: Combining MATLAB and Simulink with PSpice to Streamline PCB Design

Your electronic systems are becoming more complex—for too long, you’ve gone back and forth between electrical and mechanical simulation. In today’s design world, a designer cannot just rely upon the simulation and optimization of individual blocks and hope that these different blocks will work to design specifications when assembled together. A well-integrated powerful modeling and simulation environment would enable designers to identify and correct issues at the design stage.

With the integration of Cadence® PSpice® with MathWorks MATLAB and Simulink, you now have a complete system-level simulation solution for PCB design and implementation. Learn how you can simulate your entire electromechanical system as one system, in one integrated environment.

The PSpice Systems option also enables you to transfer PSpice analysis data into MATLAB with the click of a button to generate customized plots in MATLAB and to perform complex calculations with simulation data in PSpice environment using MATLAB functions. This solution provides three key benefits. You can:

  1. Utilize all post-process MATLAB analysis and measurement functions in a single, integrated system design and debug environment.
  2. Simulate the algorithmic and circuit/electrical-level blocks together reusing testbenches, signal sources, and common measurements.
  3. Perform functional verification of a full system. Using the new flow improves the designer’s productivity and the quality of simulations. Time to market gets reduced.


Join our webinar to learn more about the integration of PSpice, MATLAB, and Simulink. In this webinar, you will see the demo of:

  • MATLAB Simulink – PSpice Co-Simulation: Simulate complete systems in a virtual prototype environment
  • PSpice – MATLAB Visualization Interface: View PSpice simulation results in MATLAB, and customize waveform processing on export
  • Use MATLAB functions in PSpice: Use MATLAB functions directly in measurement expression and in behavioral modeling within PSpice and the OrCAD® Capture/DEHDL environment.

Watch the webinar now to learn how to simulate your entire system.
