- EXCEL Help from the ECE 100 Course Materials. Some example Excel worksheets can be found here or here.
- Handouts

- PSpice Monte Carlo Analysis and Histograms (Word 6.0 document)
- The PSpice Monte Carlo analysis of a low-pass filter can be found here.

- PSpice

- The most recent PSpice version 8 can be downloaded from OrCAD (formerly MicroSim).
- I have put a copies of older versions here for those with
older hardware and software. These are IBM-PC compatible DOS-based
versions that only require a coprocessor and 1 or 2 MB of
extended memory. They will run under Microsoft Windows.
- PSpice 6.1 Evaluation Version (August 1994) is on two 1.4 MB disks. This version has its own limited window support, but requires entry of components in a text format (versus the schematic capture approach in the newest versions).
- PSpice 6.0 Evaluation Version is on three 1.2 MB disks.
