Cadence PSpice A/D and Advanced Analysis

Cadence® PSpice® is a full-featured, native analog and mixed-signal circuit simulator. Used in conjuction with PSpice A/D, PSpice Advanced Analysis tools help designers improve yield,and reliability of their designs.

Cadence® PSpice® A/D is the de-facto industry-standard Spice-based simulator for system design. It simulates complex mixed-signal designs containing both analog and digital parts, and it supports a wide range of simulation models such as IGBTs, pulse width modulators, DACs, and ADCs. Its built-in mathematical functions and behavioral modeling techniques enable fast and accurate simulation of designs with efficient debugging. PSpice A/D also allows users to design and generate simulation models for transformers and DC inductors.

Scalability options include PSpice Advanced Analysis capabilities and integration with MathWorks MATLAB Simulink for co-simulation. Advanced capabilities such as temperature and stress analysis, electro-mechanical simulation, worst-case analysis, Monte Carlo analysis, and curve-fit optimizers help engineers design high-performance circuits that are reliable and withstand parameter variation.

Full integration with Allegro® Design Entry HDL and OrCAD® Capture gives customers a choice among schematic tools to capture their designs.


  • Determines which components are over-stressed using Smoke analysis or observes component yields using Monte Carlo analysis to prevent board failures
  • Advanced simulation performance technology saves time,improves reliability, and speeds convergence on larger designs
  • MATLAB Simulink interface allows system-level interfaces to be tested with actual electrical designs emulating real-world applications
