Community-driven web portal puts PSpice simulation models and reference designs from major IC vendors at your fingertips
Cadence Design Systems today announced the launch of PSpice.com, a new user-community web portal that lets designers, partners and students access materials related to PSpice analog and mixed-signal simulation and analysis in one central location.
The PSpice portal includes application notes, design examples, video tutorials and tools necessary or helpful for creating designs. Its forum discussion section allows users to share knowledge about design experiences, ask technical questions to other PSpice users or Cadence experts and get recommendations for products and services. The portal provides access to thousands of simulation models from Texas Instruments, with plans to add many more from other major IC manufacturers.
“The PSpice web portal and community is a good resource for any analog or mixed-signal engineer creating an electronic design,” said Makram Mansour, Ph.D., WEBENCH manager at Texas Instruments. “Within the PSpice.com environment, the designer can quickly create a sub-system design using WEBENCH design tools, select from thousands of component models, and easily export the simulation files to PSpice to characterise its performance. In just a few minutes, a designer can have a fully functioning sub-system board design and layout ready for fabrication to use in its development.”
“PSpice.com is your one-stop shop for information on PSpice,” said Kishore Karnane, product management director, PCB Group, Cadence. “Analog and mixed-signal designers won’t need to search different websites looking for PSpice information anymore. They now have a focal point to get PSpice technical tips and tricks and even related events sponsored by worldwide Cadence Channel Partners. In addition, the Collaborative Forum gives PSpice users the opportunity to connect with each other, share design ideas, tech tips, models, etc. Cadence would like to bring all the PSpice users together through this forum.”
