A voltage divider is a passive linear circuit that produces an output voltage (Vout) that is a fraction of its input voltage (Vin). Voltage division is the result of distributing the input voltage among the components of the divider.
A simple example of a voltage divider is two resistors connected in series, with the input voltage applied across the resister pair and the output voltage emerging from the connection between them.
- Time Domain (Transient) simulation
- Toggle Cursor function
- Bias points (V, I, W)
Calculate the voltage across and current through the resistors for the four schematics below
Use OrCAD Capture and PSpice to make the schematics and run the simulations
The image below illustrates four different examples of voltage dividers.
