Novinky v PSpice

V pravidelných časových odstupoch sú vydávané nové verzie programov PSpise, ktoré obsahujú vždy nejaké vylepšené, či nové funkcie. Užívatelia s platnou zmluvou o podpore (Maintenance) dostávajú tieto v rámci nej bezplatne. Tu je prehľad noviniek, ktoré pribudli pre jednotlivé verzie:

Verzia 16.6 [11/2012]

- Download PDF What's new in PSpice Version 16.6
- Advanced control options: Numerous advanced convergence and simulation control options/parameters have been added or exposed, giving users greater control over simulation and convergence. These options include: bias-point convergence, voltage limiting, worst-case deviations, max-time step control, pseudo transient, and relative tolerance.
- Probe .dat upgrade to 64-bit precision: PSpice now generates 64-bit data precision in the .dat file output. This ensures higher precision compared to the 32-bit .dat file data from previous releases. (As an example, in previous releases, when a very small amplitude voltage is superimposed on a large voltage, the resulting voltage lost its resolution in a 32-bit .dat file.)
- UNDO support for captured netlists: Netlisting to PSpice now preserves UNDO, making it easier to make iterations and modify parameters, components, and connectivity.
- Enhanced IBIS support: The IBIS to PSpice model now supports V-T curves for all IBIS models up to version 5.0
- Multi-core engine support: Enhancements to multi-core support and I/O read-write provide significant performance improvements. Focused performance enhancements, especially for large designs or designs with complex model instances (MOSFETS, BJT), also boost performance.
- Encryption enhancements: Upgraded model encryption now includes 256-bit (AES) encryption support.
- Tcl-based customization: Advanced Analysis, simulation, and .dat file access can be accessed and extended with user-definable actions and capabilities. This enables an environment that can be enhanced to specific flows and needs, and allows users to leverage enhanced features and design capabilities.
