A circuit simulation book that addresses PSpice for Windows! Using a careful step-by-step process, this book takes readers from a simple dc circuit with its customary current and voltage measurements, through a damped resonant circuit requiring rise time to characteristics, to a complex analog/digital circuit that demands sophisticated timing and frequency measurements.
Multi-level activities, examples, and exercises allow users to draw circuits directly on the screen, exactly as they would to create initial designs. It also enables them to analyze the circuits using PSpice,—and shows the circuit displayed at a level of detail unavailable through conventional techniques. This book also includes instruction in advanced techniques such as Monte Carlo and Performance.
For instruction in DC/AC and devices, operational amplifiers, digital, analog, and filter design. n.
This is the first book (in this case, books) on PSpice circuit simulation, covering both PSpice techniques and DC/AC theory and applications for technology students with little or no experience in circuit simulation. Material is based on OrCAD Lite 9.2, the latest free evaluation version of OrCAD Corporation's PSpice. Since most activities can be done by either PSpice simulation or hands-on construction, the book is designed to replace a conventional DC/AC laboratory manual. Use of a mouse is the only computer skill required. This third edition increases coverage of DC/AC electronics from nine to 19 chapters. The author is affiliated with Mission College. Annotation c.
