Texas Instruments Releases Custom Version of the PSpice Simulator

September 17, 2020 Perry Cohen

Texas Instruments released a custom version of the PSpice® simulator from Cadence Design Systems, enabling engineers the ability to simulate complex analog circuits. Included with this is unlimited analysis of the company’s power and signal-chain products.

PSpice features a library of over 5,700 TI analog integrated circuit (IC) models.

“Choosing the right simulation software can make or break a design, as it should accelerate development, not hinder it,” said practice leader for power, automotive and industrial semiconductor research at Omdia Kevin Anderson, in a press release. “Tools that are intuitive and include system-level simulation capabilities can cut development time and speed time to market.”

By leveraging the simulation technology from Cadence, PSpice allows designers to reduce circuit error risks with full validation of system-level designs before prototype.

PSpice also gives engineers the ability to build complete schematics without size limitations using a built-in library of TI power and signal chain models. PSpice analog behavioral models, enhanced primitives, and new capability for power designers with configurable power field-effect transistors and power diodes are also available.

Per the release, capabilities of PSpice include automatic measurements and post-processing, as well as Monte Carlo and worst-case analysis, enabling engineers to fully validate their designs over a wide range of operating conditions and device tolerances.
