SPICE - Simulation Program Integrated Circuits Especially

Unread postby amna haider » Thu Aug 29, 2013 12:00 am

SPICE stands for Simulation Program Integrated Circuits Especially! The program originates from the University of California, Berkeley. Spice is used to provide a reasonably detailed analysis of circuits containing active components such as bipolar transistors, field effect transistors, diodes and lumped components such as resistors, capacitors and inductors. Note that Spice is a circuit simulation program, not a logic simulation program. Thus Spice considers the voltages and currents in a circuit to be continuous quantities, not quantised into high/low values. The original Spice program has given rise to a variety of commercial implementations. At Aberdeen the following versions are available to you:
  • HSPICE - running on the Unix systems this is a particularly fast version, and is the one you should normally use. A graphics post processor is available.
  • PSPICE - a useful version on PCs. Again a graphics post processor is available as well as a schematic capture system and other electronics design tools. For a free evaluation copy, which will simulate many usefull small circuits see the microsim home page.
  • cdsSpice - available on the HP machines in the CAD lab, and on the Sun machines supplied by the Computing Centre as part of the Cadence CAD environment.
  • Dolphin SMASH - again a PC version of SPICE with very good transistor modelling features. A free evaluation copy is also available which like the Microsim PSPICE product is limited to small circuits.
