Electronic – Error on importing 3rd party model into LTSpice


I'm new to LTSpice but have the basics figured out (laying out a schematic, setting up simulation, running) and have done so with the basic but very well stocked library included. Of course my issue is I'm not using LT op amps.

I'm trying to import the model for the LM4562, but there are three options: PSPICE, and two TINA-TI which I'm not even sure what that is. The PSPICE package does not contain any .mod or .subckt files, rather it contains a .lib that has all the subcircuit information in it.

I have been trying for the last few hours to import the parameters and get it to work to no avail. All the tutorials are usually directed either at .mod files, or when I try to .INCLUDE the .LIB file, it throws errors that I don't fully understand.

I used the opamp2 symbol and modified it so that the pin names match up, or at least I believe I did (I could have done it incorrectly I suppose).

Below is a screenshot of the circuit I'm using to test it, and the error message I get:

Below is my Netlist:

V1 VCC 0 9

V2 0 VEE 9

V3 Vni 0 SINE(0 1 500)

R1 0 Vi 1K

R2 OP Vi 9.09K

XU1 Vi Vni VCC VEE OP LM4562

.INCLUDE D:\Library\Datasheets\Models\lm4562\LM4562.LIB


.tran 0 25ms 0s 1ms



Errors are as follows. I'm not sure what nodes are floating:

This circuit has floating nodes.**

What am I doing wrong, and more importantly, how do I import this model correctly?

It looks like the op amp symbol you dropped in your schematic is not mapping to the correct pins on the device. What symbol did you use? You can make a new symbol and make sure the pin names match those in the .lib file...
