Hello,

I am using multisim13.0 and wanted to add the opamp OPA378 http://www.ti.com/lit/ds/sbos417d/sbos417d.pdf as it was not found in the multisim13 component list.

followed this tutorial http://www.ni.com/white-paper/3173/en/  but was not able to get anything in the filter to add row as metioned in the tutorial as shown below.

The footprint is SC70 DCK 5 as shown in the page22 of datasheet.

Can someone help me out with adding the component.

Hi PatanGova,

 

Have a look at this knowledge base:

http://digital.ni.com/public.nsf/allkb/A56AAC0F4ED96554862571CB0068CE94

 

In the filter dialog, click on Add Row, the * is a wild card and it helps searching for specific string.  In the attached screen shot, I added two rows and I am search for any part with 5 pins and the footprint name contains "SC70".

Hello Tien P,

I searched the footprint with name "SC70" and got the different ones(as shown in attached image) as compared to the one you showed in your image(as analog Devices,etc.,).Also I don't get anything in the footprint.

can I know to add the correct footprint ?

thanks.

Hi PatanGava,

 

In the filter click on Add row, click in the cell below Column and select Footprint, now in the Value column, type *SC70*.  Click Add row again, on the second row select Pin Count and 5 for value.  Your screen should look like this:

 

 

 

When cannot find a footprint in the Master database, you can add one by highlight the User or Corporate database  the click the Add button, you will get a pop up window where you can define your own footprint.

Hi Tien P,

I tried as shownin the attached image by selecting IPC-7351SC70-DCK-5 but when I was about to add .sym as mentioned here http://www.ni.com/white-paper/3173/en/ I was unable to find the respective .sym file in the OPA378 spice model http://www.ti.com/product/opa378.Do I need to convert the files in OPA378 to .sym or is there any other method.

Thanks.
