Make Reliable Designs That Won’t Fail In The Real World!- Use Smoke Analysis In PSpice (Part 3 of 4)

June 14, 2018

"A product recall is the process of retrieving and replacing defective goods for consumers". There are so many product recalls nowadays, especially in the Automotive and Cellphone industry. That's a got to avoid those recalls, or you may lose your value in the market. Effects of product recalls on companies have been well articulated here.


SPICE simulators in general are good at simulating circuits. But, they are not well equipped when it comes to finding the "bad" components in your design. By "bad", I mean the ones which are likely to fail in the future. As a designer, it’s your job/ responsibility to design the most reliable circuit for your application. You need to avoid the product recalls and save your company's money and reputation


PSpice Smoke Analysis makes it easy to find stressed components so you can design a more reliable circuit. It looks at your entire circuit and models expected current, voltage, power and temperature conditions for every component in your circuit- Now that is so cool!


Why to perform Smoke Analysis on your circuit? It has it's critical importance! Continue reading here
