Appendix A
OrCAD PSpice, Capture, and Probe Tutorial
Last Update: 18-Aug-00
\u00a9 2000 by Don Peter, Seattle Pacific University

With the recent transition of the popular PSpice circuit analysis tool from MicroSim
Corp. to OrCAD, inc., there have been significant changes to it, especially with regard to
its human interface, i.e., the way a user interacts with and operates the software. This
tutorial has been written to aid those who either have never used PSpice before or have
only used the MicroSim version of it (e.g., MicroSim Version 8). Because of the human
interface differences with past versions, even those with prior PSpice experience will
benefit from covering this material. This document is based on OrCAD Release 9.1.


This tutorial is by no means exhaustive. The core tool, PSpice, along with its
companions Capture (schematic capture) and Probe (graphical output of analysis results)
are sophisticated and extensive software packages whose full content cannot possibly be
covered in a document such as this. The goal, instead, is to provide the user with a fairly
brief guide that will enable him/her to use this powerful package to model and analyze
circuits covered in their engineering education experience at SPU. Extensive help can be
accessed via the Help menus provided in the tools. Specifically, as part of the Help in
Capture there a menu item called Learning Capture, which has lessons and exercises you
may use for supplementary learning (Figure 1). In addition, complete Online manuals
are available via one of the the OrCAD Release 9.1 menu selections (Figure 2).


We will begin with an explanation of (1) how to get started. There are a few pointers
you will need to follow in order to be able to successfully start the program and analyze
your circuit. Next, we will look at (2) Capture, the tool that allows you to create a
schematic. We will look at the working environment of menus and toolbars and then
explore how to actually build a schematic of your own. Once a schematic has been built,
we will be ready to set up (3) an analysis for that circuit. This will be doneusing the
corePSpice portion of OrCAD. We will look at how to perform the following analyses:
Bias Point, DC Sweep, Transient, and AC. We will also learn how to set up a parametric
secondary analysis as part of one of the four main analyses types. As part of the learning
of PSpice use, we will investigate the (4) capabilities of Probe, which is the main tool
that makes doing PSpice analyses fun by rendering the results in attractive graphical
