Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Following a unique perspective, this book clearly shows engineers how to apply simulation to electronic circuits. The second edition includes updated circuit examples with an emphasis on CMOS circuits and other technologies as well as updated result interpretation through state-of-the-art graphic output displays. Two new chapters have been added to reflect the latest advances in SPICE technology. New examples are presented on model parameter extraction and usage for discrete components and Integrated Circuits. Engineers will also discover the main capabilities of the industrial-strength commercial SPICE simulators, HSPICE, Spectre, and Eldo. design processes.

Book News Annotation:

Vladimirescu, one of SPICE's original developers, introduces computer simulation of electrical and electronics circuits based on the SPICE standard. He focuses on interpreting simulation results in relation to electrical engineering fundamentals, and encourages students to solve circuit examples by hand before verifying the results with SPICE. He describes circuit elements, networks, and semiconductor-device elements, covers dc, ac, and time-domain analysis, and emphasizes the relation between EE fundamentals and computer simulation.

Synopsis:

This new book, written by Andre Vladimirescu, who was instrumental in the development of SPICE at the University of California Berkeley, introduces computer simulation of electrical and electronics circuits based on the SPICE standard. Relying on the functionality first supported in SPICE2 that is now supported in all SPICE programs, this text is addressed to all users of electrical simulation. The approach to learning circuit simulation is to interpret simulation results in relation to electrical engineering fundamentals; the book asks the student to solve most circuit examples by hand before verifying the results with SPICE. Addressed to both the SPICE novice and the experienced user, the first six chapters provide the relevant information on SPICE functionality for the analysis of linear as well as nonlinear circuits. Each of these chapters starts out with a linear example accessible to any new user of SPICE and proceeds with nonlinear transistor circuits. The latter part of the book goes into more detail on such issues as functional and hierarchical models, distortion analysis, basic algorithms in SPICE and related options parameters, and, how to direct SPICE to find a solution when it does not converge to a solution. The approach emphasizes that SPICE is not a substitute for knowledge of circuit operation but a complement. The SPICE Book is different from previously published books in the approach of solving circuit problems with a computer. The solution to most circuit examples is sketched out by hand first and followed by a SPICE verification. For more complex circuits it is not feasible to find the solution by hand but the approach stresses the need for the SPICE user tounderstand the results. Readers gain a better comprehension of SPICE thanks to the importance placed on the relation between EE fundamentals and computer simulation. The tutorial approach advances from the hand solution of a circuit to SPICE verification and simulation results interpretation. This book teaches the approach to electrical circuit simulation rather than a specific simulation program. Examples are simulated alternatively with SPICE2, SPICE3 or PSPICE. Accurate descriptions, simulation rationale and cogent explanations make this an invaluable reference.

Synopsis:

Extremely easy-to-follow due to its natural progression tutorial approach on how to advance from the solution of typical electrical and electronic circuit examples by hand, followed by a SPICE verification through the discussion of simulation results. The first part contains relevant data about SPICE in order to analyze both linear passive and electronic circuits. The latter half provides more detail on such topics as distortion models and analysis, basic algorithms in SPICE, analysis option parameters and how to direct SPICE to find a solution when it fails.
