can I select a different simulation model?
|Many of the components within Circuit Wizard
and Livewire support a range of models. With models you can
simulate the different characteristics of named real-life components.
NPN transistor, for example, can be made to act like a BC108,
BFY51 or a ZTX300.
|Some components also feature an ideal model.
The ideal model is better for teaching basic concepts as it
provides a behaviour that is simplified or typical for that
|For digital components, the ideal model provides
a drive capability better than TTL with low power requirements
that are equivalent to CMOS. Any voltage below 0.3 VDD is treated
as a low signal and any voltage above 0.7 VDD is treated as
a high signal (between these the logic level is undefined).
|To select a simulation model, first drag onto
your design the component symbol, for example an NPN transistor.
|To select a model in Circuit
then double-click with the left mouse button on the component
within your design and then choose from the Models list
in the window that appears.
|To select a model in Livewire,
then click with the right mouse button on the component
within your design and then choose from the Models option
