  • Simulate the Test Circuit in Time Domain

We will provide the steps and an example project which you can use to practice running the process. This project folder can also be found in <AMS installation path>\SDD_HOME\sim\systemvision\tutor\. Copy the folder Spice_import into your working directory OR the lab attachment can also be found in the "Links" Section of this KBA.
