SPICE for circuits and electronics using PSpice. 2nd ed. (English) Zbl 0837.94001
Englewood Cliffs, NJ: Prentice Hall. xviii, 364 p. (1995).
SPICE is a general purpose computer program that simulates electric circuits. The PSpice simulator is similar to SPICE and runs on personal computers. The objective of this book is to introduce the SPICE simulator at sophomore/junior university level. A basic course in electric circuits is assumed as a co-requisite or prerequisite.
A discussion of how to characterize electric circuits for PSpice is given. The SPICE simulation of dc circuit analysis, transient analysis and ac circuit analysis is then covered. Many examples of the various procedures are included. Several PSpice advanced commands, such as Fourier analysis, noise analysis and sensitivity analysis, are next described and illustrated.
In the next three chapters the specification and analysis of electric circuits containing semiconductor diodes, bipolar transistors and field effect transistors are treated. The use of PSpice for simulating Op-amp circuits and some digital logic circuits are also covered. This book is useful as a supplement to electric circuits or electronics textbooks or can be used for self-study.
