Used collectively, PSPICE and MATLAB® are unsurpassed for circuit modeling and data analysis. PSPICE can perform DC, AC, transient, Fourier, temperature, and Monte Carlo analysis of electronic circuits with device models and subsystem subcircuits. MATLAB can then carry out calculations of device parameters, curve fitting, numerical integration, numerical differentiation, statistical analysis, and two- and three-dimensional plots. PSPICE and MATLAB® for Electronics: An Integrated Approach, Second Edition illustrates how to use the strong features of PSPICE and the powerful functions of MATLAB for electronic circuit analysis.
After introducing the basic commands and advanced features of PSPICE as well as ORCAD schematics, the author discusses MATLAB fundamentals and functions. He then describes applications of PSPICE and MATLAB for problem solving. Applications covered include diodes, operational amplifiers, and transistor circuits.
New to the Second Edition

Praise for the First Edition
"… With the ease of using a high-level language, the book describes the combined power of PSPICE and MATLAB programming for analyzing diode, op-amps, and transistor circuits … These chapters are bound to motivate any enthusiastic electronic engineer interested in simulation, modeling, and analysis of electronic circuits. This book has clearly exposed the strength of the integrated usage of PSPICE and MATLAB packages in solving electronic circuits. The numerous examples, both worked out and homework problems, should provide the reader with a good knowledge of the integrated usage of PSPICE and MATLAB packages …"
—K. Vasudevan, University of Bridgeport, Connecticut, USA
"Each chapter contains a large number of worked PSPICE and MATLAB examples … Highly recommended as a useful addition for lower-division undergraduates through professionals, and two-year technical program students."
