OrCAD PSpice Designer is software meant to aid in the simulation and testing of both mixed-signal and analogue circuits. This is a great solution for engineers who are designing a specific device and wish to observe its effects within a virtual environment before implementing it into a real-world situation. It is also an excellent bench tester.
Features and Applications
OrCAD PSpice Designer can be used to isolate and analyze single circuits or a group of components. The main intention is to optimise performance while observing variables such as reliability, the effects of temperature and any signal degradation across multiple points. This software package is actually a cost-effective solution when compared to running physical tests on a component and risking real-world damage or downtime. To aid in such virtual testing, OrCAD PSpice Designer supplies no less than 33,000 different signal-ready devices to use during the process of behavioral modeling.
This unique software package is defined by its open architecture. So, users can customize its performance around their discrete requirements. A large online community offers additional support in the form of video tutorials, webinars and expert blogs. Note that the latest version (17.2) is free although more sophisticated tasks will dictate that the full package is purchased.
