I am trying to run the schematic for the LTC3889 regulator demo board DC2595A on LTSpice, but every time I attempt to run it, I get the following error:
I downloaded the schematic file directly from the LTC3889 Analog Devices webpage.
Does anyone know how I can get around this and/or why this error is coming up?
You have tried to open a PADS PCB file with LTspiceXVII. This will fail of course.
There is no schematic for LTspiceXVII in the zip-file for this board, because there is no LTspice-model available for the LTC3889.You can check this if you try to add a LTC3889 on a blank schematic in LTspiceXVII.
The file I am attempting to use the LTspice schematic located in the DC2595A zip folder supplied on it's page.
I understand there is not a schematic directly for the LTC3889 but the schematic for it's demo board DC2595A shown above won't work. It is shown as a LTspice Schematic file, not sure how this relates to a PADS PCB file.
LTspice schematic files use .asc for file names, and it appears that PADS also has an .asc file name for ascii design files. So, your computer thinks it's an LTspice file, b/c the file name ends in .asc, but it's not.
If you open the file in a text editor, you can see that this file is not an LTspice file:
Thank you for clarifying.
Is there any way to convert the file from PADS to an LTspice file?
Not that I'm aware of.
