Default LM4562

Has anyone successfully gotten the TI spice model for the LM4562 to work in LTSpice? I tried importing the model myself, but I'm having issues getting everything setup properly.... Any help would be appreciated.

What you need is an .asy model working together with your model-file.
You can make this file from scratch, but you can also copy the .asy model of an other opamp (with same connections) and rename it.

In the model-file, the part ought to be defined as a .SUBCKT for this to work. Check that the connectors in the .SUBCKT model check-out with the connections in the .asy model!!! If it doesn't, it will not work.

The model file ( with a .lib, .sub or .txt extension ) ought to be stored in the C:\Program Files (x86)\LTC\LTspiceIV\lib\sub directory

and the .asy file in the C:\Program Files (x86)\LTC\LTspiceIV\lib\sym directory.

But that's not all.

In the .asy file you've got to verify that the attribute "modelfile" has the same name as the model-file.

You can always auto generate a symbol direct from the model.
File>Open and load in the model to show the listing.
Place the cursor on the 1st line, i.e. the line with the device name in, and right click on it & select Create Symbol.
This will be a box shape with all the correct component pins and it will reside in the Auto Generated folder when you choose a component for your schematic.

The LM4562 model has some convergence problems due to an "ideal" diode. Additionally the + and - input are exchanged.
I have included the corrected file.

To add the LM4562 in your simulation add the symbol Opamps/opamp2 and rename it to LM4562. Additionally add ".lib LM4562.lib" to your circuit.

Realize this is a slight thread necro, but:

Udo--I was having convergence problems galore and trying to figure out what was wrong. Just found your post and wanted to thank you for your updated/corrected file.

I am also having problems with the spice model for the LM4562.

I am using the corrected version posted in this thread.
If I simulate a simple inverting amplifier test circuit using the model, it works fine.

However, if I substitute a TL072 with the LM4562 in a simulation of a 1kHz audio oscillator circuit, I get floating node and singular matrix error messages:-

WARNING: Node U1:1:U11:VP1 is floating.
WARNING: Node U1:1:14 is floating.

This circuit has floating nodes.

Can any LTSpice gurus suggest what might be going wrong?

I have attached a zip file containing the Oscillator3.asc file along with simulation models for the TL072 and LM4562.
