This guide explains how you can create PSpice simulation ready part using spice files.  

  1. Save your spice file as a .lib file. This file format is recognized by Model Editor.  
  2. Open Model Editor.

  3. Choose Capture as your design entry tool.

  4.  Select the menu items File > Model Import Wizard.

  5.  Click the Browse button of the "Enter Input Model Library" field and select the .lib file you saved in step 1.

  6.  Leave the auto populated entry of the Enter Destination Symbol Library field blank.

  7. Click the Next button.

  8. Depending upon the system interpretation of your .lib file, complete the following:
    1. If the tool recognizes your model it will suggest a matching symbol. If this is the case, select the symbol (which will show in the box to the right) and Click Next.

    2. If you have a symbol file (an .olb file or an etc file) click Associate symbol
      • Browse for your symbol.
      • Click Next, then assign the symbol pins with the model terminal. (If you are unsure click View model to view the pin connections.)
      • Click Save symbol.

    3. If you do not have a model and the program does not identify one, click Finish. The question below will pop up. Select Yes. This assigns a box with outputs and inputs to your PSpice model as the symbol.

      A popup report of the new part opens. The end of the report identifies errors or warnings that may have occurred, as well as the location of the input and export files.

  9. Click OK.

  10. Open PSpice.  

  11.  Place the part.   Add a new library.

  12. Navigate to your new part. Notice the part folder includes an .olb file with the name of your part.

  13. Select the .olb file and click Open.
    Note: If you had a symbol and saved it in this folder, be sure to select the part rather than the symbol.

  14.  Place the part in your schematic.

  15.  Open a simulation profile. If you have not yet created one, create one now. Open the Simulation Settings window and Configuration Files tab.

  16. Go to the library category and browse for your .lib from which you created your new part and select it. Choose Add as global. This adds the simulation profile for the part now anytime you use the part.

    The part is now created and ready to use in future designs.
