PSpice is a high performance SPICE simulator that is used in combination with OrCAD Capture to simplify the design and testing of both analog and mixed signal circuits. The software is sold and maintained by Cadence Design Systems. Included in PSpice is a limited library of Coilcraft RF inductor models.Coilcraft has created a set of advanced frequency dependent and time domain (impedance) models for modelling the small signal response of inductors. These models are based on the same schematic, element values, and coefficients for variable elements which are provided in our SPICE model documents for each inductor series. We have also developed saturation models for our soft-saturating inductors.
To include the advanced library copy the contents of the Coilcraft_PSpiceLib.zip file to a location that makes sense. For example create a new libraries folder in the PSpice install directory C:\Cadence\Libraries Alternatively if installing for a single user the path can point to a folder in the user’s documents folder. See below for more detailed instructions
|Coilcraft_PSpiceLib.zip||Includes all Coilcraft power and RF inductors for AC analysis.|
IMG(V(Vin)/I(R2))/(2*pi*frequency)To plot Impedance vs frequency:
V(Vin)/I(R2)To plot ESR vs frequency:
R(V(Vin)/I(R2))To plot Q factor vs frequency:
ABS(IMG(V(Vin)/I(R2))/R(V(Vin)/I(R2)))*note voltage node names may be different it is up to user to ensure voltage is across inductor
