Dave, If you place the library siov.lib in the <protel>\lib\sim\ecos (you must create the ecos directory) then you will be able to use the siov component wih the part name specified as "S20K275" (as on sch) or whichever component you want. The gotcha here is that I tried to make the simulation work, but there are differences in PSICE, and SPICE3 or whatever PROTEL SPICE engine is used. At least this will get the spice simulation code into PROTEL for you. You will have to keep modifying siov.lib until it works.
FYI: the steps involved are: 1 create the sch symbol 2 update the readonly/library lines in the description line 1: type subckt(x) **everything I have done so far is a subckt line 2: model <modelname> this is the name of the part in your library. There must be a corresponding: .SUBCKT <modelname> xxx in your library file. line 3: file lists the library file name. line 4: maps the pins on the sch symbol to the .subckt line in the sim file example: opamp using pins 2,3,4,6,7 as in- in+ v- out v+ correspondingly might be pins=1:[3,2,7,4,6] and the sim file would have the .subckt line in the order: in+ in- v+ v- out line 5: takes line 4 and sends it to the sim file with the number of pins wanted by the sim file as far as I can tell, the %1 references the first pin in line4 ... I always use a boilerplate from a working sym symbol. If you are able to make the conversion work, please send me the working version as I want to learn more about how to convert libraries. This is the first one I haven't been able to make work.
