Analog Design and Simulation Using OrCAD Capture and PSpice, Second Edition provides step-by-step instructions on how to use the Cadence/OrCAD family of Electronic Design Automation software for analog design and simulation. Chapters explains how to start, capture, and set up the project type and libraries for PSpice simulation, also including instructions on how to calculate the frequency and phase response of a circuit and how to calculate the circuit's bias point over a range of values. New sections include updates on OrCAD Release 17.2 and its new features, coverage of PSPICE extra features and support for negative values in hysteresis and threshold voltage.

In addition, a new chapter on PSpice Advanced Analysis includes a description of a parametric sweep, which involves sweeping a parameter through a range of values, along with the use of Stimulus Editor to define transient analog and digital sources and an examination of the failure of simulations due to circuit errors and missing or incorrect parameters.

Key Features

  • Provides both a comprehensive user guide and a detailed overview of simulation using OrCAD Capture and PSpice
  • Includes worked and ready to try sample designs and a wide range of to-do exercises
  • Covers Capture and PSpice together


Electrical and electronic engineers in industry, researchers and students using the Cadence/OrCAD professional simulation software to design and analyze electronic circuits
