I didn't realize KiCad has a spice simulator built in. Anyone used it? I could have been editing my board schematic and doing the simulation at the same time! I don't know how compatible models are with various simulators. I contacted one vendor about a problem with their spice model and they basically blew me off saying I needed to use Orcad spice. lol I guess when you've seen one s...

Could some electronics guru here shed some light on this ? How do measure Q for say a capacitor using SPICE simulation ? I know how to measure reflection coefficient, insertion loss and SWR from a SPICE AC analysis. Any hints/pointers in regard to the Q measurement with SPICe simulation will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I have created SPICE models for simple DC motors, and I am curious if any electronics guru could point me to a SPICE model for a brush-less DC motor. I have searched on Google, but the SPICE models on various Web sites always seem to be for the simple DC motor. Thanks in advance for your help.

LT Spice XVII is in my opinion a little weird about the simulation command pull-down menus. So people wind up editing sim command lines to insert and delete semicolons to enable various sims. I switch other kinds of Spice directives on and off by right-clicking and changing the line from "spice directive" to "comment", which is easier than editing semicolons. I emailed Mike Engelhardt ...

Could some electronics guru please shed some light on this ? I created a SPICE model for a simple brushed DC motor. It is complete as it includes the models for torque and inertia. When excited with a SPICE pulse or piece-wise linear model, the armature current, when plotted shows the upward and downward spikes, of the correct amplitude, as expected. Now when I replace the SPICE p...

I can't find any useful references for MOSFET SPICE parameters. Does this information exist entirely in book form, or something? Example: websites copypasting the SPICE 3f5 handbook. This says more-or-less what the parameters are (e.g., doping density of so-and-so, etc.), but not how they're used, what they do (no formula, no description, no intent). Even the ones that do (e.g., HSPI...

Happy New Year to you all. Could someone please direct me to a site or URL for MESFET SPICE models. All I find from Google searches are S parameter values at high frequencies which are equally important, but no SPICE models. Thanks in advance for your help.

Could some electronics guru point me to a working(i.e., correctly simulates) astable multivibrator SPICE model with MOSFET only. I have two working BJT based astable multivibrator SPICE models. However, my MOSFET based astable multivibrator model, works as per hand calculation, but shows no oscillations with a regular SPICE .TRAN analysis. I have tried the standard SPICE tricks, as havi...

## How to model mutial inductance in SPICE

Could some SPICE guru please help. I am trying to mofrl two parallel wires, each of diameter 'd' mm, of length 'l' mm , separated by 's' mm. These two inductors will have both self(each) and mutual inductance. They can be modelled in SPICE as two parallel inductors as follows: L0 START0 END0 L1 START1 END1 k0 L9 L1 0.99 where 'k0' is the coupling constant < So, now is the

Could some electronics/SPICE guru please shed some light on this ? I was told that the reflection coefficient for a circuit, e.g., a L impedance transformer can be estimated from the frequency response plot of its SPICE AC analysis. If so, where could I get some details of the calculation steps. Thanks in advance.

The MiniCircuits SAV-551 is a cool part, but they don't have a Spice model for it. They are classic s-parameter type folks. Does anyone have a model for this part, or something similar that could be fiddled? I'm playing with Colpitts oscillators and I'd like to Spice some variations.

I'm honing my Spice modeling skills and need some suggestions of devices whose manufacturer-provided Spice model doesn't match reality very well, or has serious issues. I'll try my hand at modeling the device and post my results on these newsgroups and on the LTspice list. It would be helpful if, when you make a suggestion, you state where and how it fails to match up with claimed data sh...

I have a customer using _Microcap_ who claims that this notation.... .PRINT AC DB(V([OUT])/V([IN_AMP])) means print the dB DIFFERENCE between V(OUT) and V(IN_AMP). I can't find such notation in the reference manual. Can this be correct? (I created a Spice model for the customer. Models runs on all brands of Spice EXCEPT Microcap which gives an "underflow" error.) ...
