this is a must-have for anyone learning or using OrCad,i downloaded the free version of OrCad - OrCad Lite from the Cadence websiteand together with this book have successfully completed a range of electronis simulations and builds, some rather simple and some quite complicatited. it is easy to follow and apply as there are examples all the way through.i have also used this book non-stop through my studies and would recomed it to anyone doing an electronics course.
This book is a perfect guide for learning PSpice tool. It explains step-by-step along with OrCAD screen pictures so that we can get ahead on learning the tool, instead of getting confused by those bad programming or computing stuff. What we want is to learn PSpice, not computer.Author uses easy circuits to show great PSpice tool potential. We can draw it in minutes and simulate immediately. That's the shortest path in this learning. Except a couple of larger circuits which takes longer to find and place parts, no CD is required.To learn PSpice 16.5, this is the best book I can find. And, I have searched through more than 10 other related books. Some interested ones I used less than 1 chapter and gave up for reasons of inaccuracy, missing importance step or information etc.The book does have some minor typo's, a couple of missing or wrong component values, and wrong figure numbers. Kind of adding the fun of debugging and learning. Refer to PSpice manual (OrCAD help) if definition on terminology unclear, such as T_REL_LOCAL. These small things help me actually.It's about an useful tool for long. Reading easy tends to forget soon. The book has the real feel and the touch for a person who is really doing it. Taking notes alongside can help in case need to come back later.cheers,Tom
I found the book an excellent guide to use PSpice and OrCAD. The chapter on creating new models is not quite good though.
