How can I use a model from PSPICE into ISpice?
I've been told that Spice models are roughly cross engine compatible.
Intusoft ISpice has a really easy UI, but doesn't have as many models included as OrCad PSpice
I wanted to shift a model for a level 2 mosfet accorss from the redistributable eval.lib:
So took the following and put it into a file called:
then in ISpice SpiceNet, did the
File->Update Part Database, which went through without error.
But now I can't find my new parts.
.MODEL MN4016A NMOS LEVEL=2 VTO=1.45 TOX=1000E-10 NSUB=4.7E16 +XJ=3U LD=2U UO=625 UCRIT=1E5 UEXP=0.45 UTRA=0.25 RSH=15 +NEFF=2.5 VMAX=1E6 CGBO=3E-10 CGDO=10E-10 CGSO=10E-10 CJSW=2F +NFS=4E12 GAMMA=2.2 LAMBDA=0.02 * .MODEL MP4016A PMOS LEVEL=2 VTO=-1.5 TOX=1000E-10 NSUB=7.6E15 +XJ=3U LD=1.5U UO=225 UCRIT=3E5 UEXP=.5 UTRA=0.25 RSH=15 +NEFF=2.5 VMAX=1E5 CGBO=3E-10 CGDO=10E-10 CGSO=10E-10 CJSW=1F +NFS=1E12 GAMMA=1.8 LAMBDA=0.02
ISPice has a slighty different set of requirements on its models:
You can find a manual for this in
C:/spice8/Adding_SPICE_Model.pdf. The key parts are:
So you should have something like, in your library file. The rest of your procedure is fine.
