Learn How to Simulate an Electronics Circuit with LTSpice
Simulate before building! Start simulating analogue circuits in no time
In this course, you will learn how to use LTSpice to start simulating analogue circuits in no time.
Circuit simulation allows you to see how a circuit works and performs without actually building it. This way you can ensure that your circuit works before going into the next step of building it.
After learning the basics about the software and how to simulate a simple circuit, you will learn how to perform more complex analysis and functions such as:
- Frequency response analysis: analyse how the circuit modifies the input signal in the frequency domain. This is very useful when designing filters.
- Monte Carlo analysis: determine the worst case output of your circuit given the tolerance of the components used. This analysis will help you to choose the right components for precision circuits.
- Importing third party models: the simulation should be as realistic as possible. Instead of using generic components, import the same components you are using in the real circuit from the manufacturers website.
For the last lesson, we will combine all learnt knowledge to design and simulate a bi-amped speaker which you can build afterwards.
My name is Roberto, I am originally from Venezuela, where I grew up and lived until I became 18. I then moved to England where I studied Electronics Engineering, became a Salsa DJ and developed an Electronic Mini Conga to use in my gigs. Interested about the topics of renewable energies and international development I moved to Peru to work as a volunteer for WindAid. During this experience I got to build and install low power wind turbines for communities without access to the electrical grid and developed a Battery Charge Controller with ease of repair and components that could be bought locally In mind. After WindAid, I moved to Spain and started a Masters in Renewable Energies and Sustainability where I gained a general understanding about how the different technologies to generate power work, materials sustainability, European law and energy efficiency.
Since then, I have worked in different industries including: audio, energy and automotive. During my professional career I’ve been involved in the design, development and testing of: remote energy management systems, power interfaces, audio devices and battery management systems for the electric vehicle. Currently, I dedicate myself to add valuable content to Developpa and work as a freelance Electronics Engineer while living in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
