Circuit Simulation and Analysis
As explained in Chapter 1 of the book, several different packages of the Cadence Design Systems design and analysis software are available and were used in preparation of this book. At the time the book was written, Version 16.5 was most current, but version 16.6 is now available. Regardless of where it was obtained, the software packages are identical and features differ only in name.
EMA Design Automation: If the software is obtained from EMA Design Automation www.ema-eda.com), the software will be called: Schematic Capture — OrCAD Capture or OrCAD Capture CIS Circuit Simulation — PSpice A/D or PSpice Advanced Analysis.
Cadence Design Systems: If the software is obtained from Cadence Design Systems (www.cadence.com), the software will be called: Schematic Capture — Cadence Allegro Design Entry Capture or Allegro Design Entry Capture CIS Circuit Simulation — Cadence Allegro AMS Simulator
Demo Version: Demo versions are available for download from the Cadence website at www.cadence.com/products/orcad/pages/downloads.aspx. The demo package includes OrCAD Capture CIS Lite and PSpice A/D Lite, which are fully functional versions that can be used to explore the examples in this book. There are some limitations on circuit and analysis complexity, but these are very useful and powerful tools.
