In our last post about special symbols we talked about Watch1 component available in PSpice and its use.Today we will discuss about another special component “Print1”.
Use this component to insert .PRINT command in your simulation. This component enables you to print voltage at node in simulation output (.out) file.You need to configure one or more parameters on this symbol instance from following list to use in simulation flow.• Analysis Type: Assign any value to one of the variables AC/DC/TRAN, depending upon the analysis you are performing. For example, if your simulation profile is configured for Transient Analysis, you should set TRAN property value as 1.• Functions: You can use following special function on output nodes DB
You can use one or more of the parameters at a time. To select these, you need to assign any value to these parameters, say, 1. For example, if you have set DB and PHASE values to 1 on symbol instance and this component is connected to node VOUT, it will print following in output file:
DB of Voltage at VOUT nodePHASE of Voltage at VOUT node
