If your are using the latest version of the simulation software from linear.com - LTspiceIV - and are using the downloaded model libraries for the January article (from N&V site), you’ll most likely encounter a path error since the model was created when the program was named SwCADIII.

The new download file has corrected this problem. If you would like to correct the file you already have - follow these steps:

Edit the NV78L05.lib files by right clicking on the file name and choose “open with” then select program from list, then Notepad. Find the instances where a path is specified:

C:\Program Files\LTC\SwCADIII\lib\cmp\standard.dio

and replace SwCADIII with LTspiceIV and save.
