I need to convert Avago HPCL-3120 to Capture and Pspice. Not usually a big problem but this time it not as usual.

When I import it goes until ".ends HCPL_3120". It seems to be a multi-whatever part.When I import through IBIS translator (jut guessing) it creates several parts. Then I retouch HCPL_3120 in Captue->File->OpenLibrary ...I place it in circuit.****** The line above is wrong, wat I was trying was file open directly to the *.txt Avago file ************
Well, pins 1 and 4 are NC. If I do not connect them, I get NET0075 unconnected pin. If I connect a ground (what should I?) I get in PSpice "Incorrect Number of Interface Nodes". (Just is case, I connect pins 6 and 7 together, these are the same output (parallel)). This is quite annoying. I don't have a clue about this.Any help is appreciated. Martins
In reply to oldmouldy:
Thank you for your answer. It worked fine. It is surprising that Avago has since long ago a faulty simulation file. Some month ago I complaint to them that something wasn't right but their answered that everything was OK. ThanksMartins
