Setting up of the output variables : Variables are nothing but nodes whose behavior is to be monitored . Setting of parameters to be varied.Analysis of Circuits It is carried out to test the behaviour of the circuit for various inputs and/or varying conditions. .

Types of Analysis DC Operating Point Analysis AC Analysis Transient Analysis Fourier Analysis Noise Analysis Distortion Analysis DC Sweep Analysis .

«Types of Analysis DC and AC Sensitivity Analyses Parameter Sweep Analysis Temperature Sweep Analysis Transfer Function Analysis Pole Zero Analysis RF Analyses (and more) .

Used for Q point determination of amplifier stage. inductors short circuited. . Capacitors are assumed to be open.DC operating point analysis In this analysis all the ac sources are zeroed out.

AC analysis then calculates the AC circuit response as a function of frequency.AC Analysis All input sources are automatically switched internally to a sinusoidal waveform for analysis. Used to calculate the Band width and/or Critical freq. .

0001 seconds]. Time = 0 to 0. Used for observing step response of the system.Transient Analysis The circuit response is calculated as a function of time. . Can be used to see the system response for a short duration of time [ eg.

. Parameter sweep : Specified parameter of the active device is varied. . DC sweep analysis : The value from the source is incremented and another DC Operating Point is calculated.Other Analyses. Temperature sweep : Operating temperature is varied..
