    Hello:

    I'm working on a project for a class I'm in requiring us to use PSPICE to determine "Rin" and the gain 'Av" of a transistor circuit. Will LTSPICE convert to a PSPICE model? If not, where can I download a copy of PSPICE so I can work on my project.

    Thank you
    Darrin

    Visit www.cadence.com where you can download a free version of SPICE but with limited size of circuit simulation. However, it will be enough for your circuit.

    Thank you! I appreciate it. It's been a while since I used SPICE so that's going to be fun.

    Hello, I tried to load the PSPICE schematic tool (ver 16) but it says I need to already have a couple of other files?

    Am I grabbing the wrong file? I'm just looking to run a PSPICE simulation. the output is a "text file" that gets saved to a folder....

    Please let me know if I'm using the wrong file.

    Thanks

    Hello, I found a download. Is PSPICE student version 16 a 768MB file?

    okay, my instructor only wants us to use PSPICE 1.5. We cannot use anything that models the circuit, only the text file input.

    I have created the input file and opened the CMD window and changed directory to the location where the file is located. All of the files for PSPICE are located within the file but when I type "pspice file.cir file.out <cr>" it says that I am using improper syntax. Can someone please help?

    Thanks
