I noticed that the text was missing from my post in the archives so I
thought I'd better post this again.
I apologise if you guys are getting this twice but just in case...

Subject: [PEDA] Protel 99SE Simulator Piecewise Linear Current Source


Hello all

In the Protel 99SE schematic editor I've placed a Piecewise
Linear Current Source (IPWL) and I've created a file with
time/value pairs to use in conjuction with the current
source. I believe I've followed all of the instructions and syntax correctly
but the simulator still spits out:

"Error on line 4: i1 neti1_1 0 dc 0
wl( file=h:\electronics\promburner\fipwl.pwl )
No such parameter on this device"

Protel creates the SPICE netlist ok and if I delete
the file from the databases directory or make a
mistake in the layout of the *.pwl file protel generates an
error while creating the netlist.

The problem appears to be that the SPICE engine only
accepts paramater pwl (time/value...) and not (
file=...).
If I copy the values from the file (256 time/value
pairs) and paste them into the netlist it works ok.

Is this a bug in the schematic to SPICE netlist
genaration or am I missing something?

Thanks in advance for any help whatsoever.
Alfonso Baz
