LTspice is a SPICE-based analog electronic circuit simulator computer software, produced by semiconductor manufacturer Analog Devices (originally by Linear Technology). It is the most widely distributed and used SPICE software in the industry. Though it is freeware, LTspice is not artificially restricted to limit its capabilities (no feature limits, no node limits, no component limits, no subcircuit limits).
Attached is an ltcpice net file.
The thevenin resistance betweed the 3ohm and 6ohm resistor is 7.6 ohms. This works out as 3ohms plus the parallel value of 20||6 (4.6ohms).
My problem is - Why is this the thevenin resistance, could someone please explain?
Mike Engelhardt wrote and developed LTspice at Linear Technology over a period of 20 years. As the world's most widely used SPICE, it became a most valuable asset for Linear Technology.
In March 2017, Analog Devices purchased Linear Technology for 14.8 billion dollars. Mike later left Analog...
I'm trying to model common mode current with LTSpice, but there is a problem with my simulation. Someone else tried on an other software and got the expected result, but I can't explain why. When going through the capacitor, square signals should become pulses, but that's not the case...
Summary:: I'm trying to analyze a frequency-mixer circuit using LTSpice but i keep bumping into problems. Am I understanding something wrong?
so I'm trying to design a frequency-mixer circuit. (the images are all shown below) in LTSpice, and there's a task asking me to perform a transient...
The time domain analysis is easier to plot compared to analyzing the frequency with respect to the phase. But, LTSpice makes it look really easy. So, for a small signal AC analysis, LTSpice does use a AC voltage source for its frequency domain analysis function. This must be a really convenient...
This is one more thread in my quest to learn simulations in LTspice. I am trying to simulate the gain limiter network shown in this video. A snapshot of the video is available for quick reference:

I am doing an online course on op-amps. The specific video I am talking about is this one (skip to 24:25). Here, the professor has derived the expression of the op-amp integrator circuit, and in the next slide, he tells that we can create a triangular wave from a square wave using this...
I am simulating a capacitance multiplier circuit and an RC filter circuit simultaneously. My aim is to check the reduction in ripples when using a cap multiplier circuit against an RC filter.

For the following circuit I need to find the output waveform.
A. Conceptually I am at sea here but I will have a stab at it. My though process is as follows :
At a given instant, the AC voltage is at a fixed value and this value drops (##V_drop##) across the resistor ##R##.
Simulate the circuit shown below sung LTspice.I tried to simulate it , but I didn't get the corrected result. Here's is my attempt:
The result (voltage in the collector of the transistor) :
Could someone let me know where is my mistake?
I have two high performance AC feedthrough capacitors (47nF, 100A, class Y2, DC-60Hz) which I want to either combine with a general purpose EMC line filter, or build a custom one to filter the mains from of about 100khz to as high as possible (for shielding purposes).
I can see...
I am studying an article on impedance matching which states about matching a resistance of 52 ohms with 2k ohm. It is accomplished by adding an inductance of XL= 318 ohms in series with the 52 ohm resistor yielding a parallel equivalent of 328ohm as reactance and 2k ohm as my...

We just finished up midterms and I actually did well--got an A. However, somehow between the midterm (class before last) and last class we jumped to creating a circuit with a diode. I am pretty lost.

I am simply attempting to design a circuit in LTSpice. We just started on dependent sources.
I am having trouble designing this guy here:
Here's what I've got:

What do I need to change to make this circuit work?
i just want to tell, can somebody, who have time just to read this file, you understand direct, if you know about fm detection, i just don't know how to make a transformer in ltspice, can somebody told how to make it this circuit with transformer and tuned please

Hello, I try to add a voltage noise using an arbitrary voltage source set as V=white(1).
Since I couldn't find any info about that parameter for the white() function I decided to do a .noise analysis to see how it responds to different values of that parameter.
Except I can't get any kind of my...
Hi. I have a simple circuit with a third-part model. As far as I can tell using info from the internet I have everything correct, but I still get this problem. Please help me clear this log-jam, thanks!
I'm trying to use LTSpice in order to fine tune LC circuits, but a road block I've hit is that when I run the simulation and generate a bode plot, the previous plot is overwritten, so I can't visually compare the effects of the L C changes. Some graphing programs have a function that let's you...

I am just wondering, how do we add an ideal BJT npn transistor to an LT Spice circuit?
From the component button i have added an 'npn1'
will the default values be ideal? And what if you want to change the beta for the transistor how do you do this.
I found a file called standard bjt, it...
Am I trying to use the LTC4440 as a high side mosfet driver, but when I run the demo simulation in LTSPice, this is what I get from the output from TG. There seems to be no boost to the gate control, so how can this drive any MOSFET, much less a FET with a drain voltage of 70 as specified on the...
I've created a multistage amplifier in LTSpice IV and want to use actual measured hfe (Beta) values for each of the transistors, though I can't find an easy way to modify them. I could modify their library values in notepad, but I am using the same transistor model for a few of the stages and...
I'm trying to model the I-V characteristics of a few diodes in LTSpice. Though doing the DC sweep I have in the picture doesn't seem to give me what I want. I'm sweeping from -80V (It's breakdown is 75V) to 2V, in 1V increments.
What kind of simulation do I have to run across the diode to get a...
