58 Threads found on edaboard.com: Switch In Pspice
Is there a part for a simple switch in pspice, single pole single throw. I could also use a single pole four throw switch, if available. Otherwise I'll just break or connect a wire connection. I'm selecting resistors to change the output frequency of a 555 timer. Thanks

Change t=0 to whatever time you want the switch to open or close.
I think you may want to use an "E" which is a VCVS.
See here or look in the pspice user guide on how to use "CONTROLLED

pspice is not a good choice for simulating a switching circuit.
it will take too long a time for simulation.

I will try to help, but I am not sure it will be adequate:
You are using the MOST as a switch? If so, in which voltage does it operate? Did you tried transmission gate instead of single n-MOS or single p-MOS?
Have you placed dummy ( MOST connected as diodes) before and after the switch?
If you do the above, your switch will work (...)

Can someone help me with a lumped element model of a N-Channel Depletion Mode MOSFET? One that doesn't have the body diodes in it (being used as a switch).
If someone can post the schematic or a drawing it would be greatly appreciated.
I found this one and I guess I can just remove the diodes. I would be shorting the body to the source.

you need to know your boost converter's worse case applied voltage & current. then multiply that number by 1.3 and find a mosfet with at least that much rating.
then evaluate your losses of conduction vs. switching frequency. try to find a mosfet that will give you average losses of the same value in each while working at rated conditions.

I think you are using the dac for delta modulation or sigma-delta modulation.
Note: It is very important for you to know that also this dac has only 1-bit, the resolution for the dac has to be as "linear" as your overall adc!! However, for a 1 bit you will always get perfect linearity. But therefore the signal source of the dac (the voltage r
