How to Create a Zener Diode SPICE Model

May 26, 2022

A Zener Diode allows current to flow in either a forward or in a reverse direction when a specified voltage, the Zener voltage, is reached. Zener Diodes are used in various applications to provide reference voltages, protect circuits from electrostatic discharge, and more. The process to accurately produce a Zener Diode model is time consuming and has a likelihood of errors; however, the PSpice Modeling App provides a fast, easily-configurable method to create Zener Diodes for simulation. To learn more, make sure to keep an eye out for more SPICE how-to's in this series.
