    Maximum Number of Components Reply
    Hi, What is the limit for the number of components that PSPICE can model? I need in the order of 4,000,000+ components to be simulated. Is this possible? Cheers

    The number of circuit elements is limited by available memory and, in this case, the result if likely to be "probably not" since a 32-bit application will only allow about 4G of memory for the process, that's less than 1K per model less any memory taken by the OS and application itself. There is also the consideration of whether the simulator will be able to resolve the convergence for that number of components in a timely manner.
