    Pspice Library errror Reply

    I had this sim working and I changed the outputs of pin to different areas a MOSFET and then I get this error in the library.

     WARNING -- Library index file nom.ind does not have the correct format
    Making new index file nom.ind for library file nom.lib
    .lib "irf.lib"                          ; International Rectifier, PSpice Model for Diode, IGBT, Mosfet & Mosfet Array

    ERROR -- Illegal self-referencing or duplicate library file C:\OrCAD\OrCAD_16.0\tools\PSpice\library\irf.lib
    Index has 19400 entries from 96 file(s).

    ERROR -- Unable to make index for library file C:\OrCAD\OrCAD_16.0\tools\PSpice\library\nom.lib


    What does this mean?  I did not touch any of the librarys and now I get this.

    In my view the most likely cause of this is that you have a duplicate reference to the LIB "irf.lib", possibly one in the Simulation profile and another for the "default" in nom.lib, or something similar - like a library reference includes "irf.lib" and another libarry also references it later. First thing to look at is the Simulation profile, remove library references apart from "nom.lib", just as a temporary check if needs be. Also the "nom.lib" will be text, check that the "irf.lib" is included only once. The "nom.ind" could be deleted from the library directory, this will cause the index file to be rebuilt when the simulation is next run which will delay the simulation for a short while until it is built.

    It is possible that this may have been caused by a bug, check that you have the latest hotfix, Capture will report 16.0.0.s003, if not you will need to get this from your local Cadence Channel Partner.
