HelloI am very new to OrCAD. I have been given a schematic that has been used to do layout in OrCAD in the past. However it doesn't seem like the ORCAD schematic was simulated via OrCAD tools. My objective is to allot models to elements and then simulate via OrCAD. I have figured out how to create models via Model Editor. However I am not sure how to assign models to already placed elements in the schematic. Could someone please advice? Thank you
You need to add two properties, Implementation is the Name of the Model / Subckt in the LIB file(s), PSpiceTemplate maps the Schematic and Model / Subckt pins. It might be easier if you load you LIB file(s) into the Model Editor and use File>Export to Capture Library to get all the symbols generated, these will have the Implementation and PSpiceTemplate properties added, you can then copy these property values over to the schematic part properties in the design. NOTE: the PSpiceTemplate uses the PIN NAMES from the schematic part, these may differ between the auto-generated symbols and the symbols you actually have in the schematic and will need to be edited to match correctly.
Considering a "net amount of effort" to get this done, you might be better to redraw the schematic from scratch using PSpice library components.
