Parent page: Accessing, Defining & Managing System Preferences
The pages in the Simulation category of the Preferences dialog provide access to preferences relating to features and functionality of Simulation.
The Simulation – General page of the Preferences dialog is used to define the default model path for circuit simulation models and to select the default simulator. To find the simulation models, the software will search the current project's folder first, then search the desired location for referenced simulation models.
Model Path – click the folder icon to open a dialog to search for and select the target folder that contains the simulation models.
Default Simulator – use the drop-down to select the desired default simulator.
Always Generate Model Symbol for Manufacturer Part Search Panel Using Simulation Model Description – when this option is enabled, schematic symbols being placed from the Manufacturing Part Search panel to a schematic sheet will always be generated based on the simulation model description of the selected component.
The Simulation - Mixed Sim page of the Preferences dialog is used to configure options for the location of SimCode models and the display of detailed information about the simulation process.
SIMCODE Output - use the browse folder icon to search for and specify the folder to where you want the compiled SimCode models to be written.
The Simulation - SIMetrix Interface page of the Preferences dialog allows you to decide how you would like to display the graph results.
SIMetrix/SIMPLIS installation location - use the browse folder icon to search for and choose the directory in which you installed SIMetrix/SIMPLIS. You can use the Auto Detect button to automatically find the directory.
