I found a discussion on this topic but the links were broken.
The response to the question looked interesting:
"the R-L-C Circuit is a good starting with HyperLynx Analog (HLA) -> http://supportnet.mentor.com/reference/tutorials/10390.cfm . I think you have watched this one already. It is showing the principals of analog simulation to an absolute beginner, but for more complex systems with ICs and subcircuits you need a deeper knowledge about DxDesigner and Spice language itself. I have already been searching through supportnet, my favourite resource for background information about Mentor products, but I could not find a relevant example or tutorial."
Is there a link that works to the following recommended totorial
I get the following error when I click the link:
