The Spice Page
SPICE is a general-purpose circuit simulation program for nonlinear dc, nonlinear transient, and linear ac analyses. Circuits may contain resistors, capacitors, inductors, mutual inductors, independent voltage and current sources, four types of dependent sources, lossless and lossy transmission lines (two separate implementations), switches, uniform distributed RC lines, and the five most common semiconductor devices: diodes, BJTs, JFETs, MESFETs, and MOSFETs. SPICE originates from the EECS Department of the University of California at Berkeley.
This page provides manual pages, a user guide, and example runs for the
Spice3f version of the program.
spice3 - The simulator itself
nutmeg - The interactive user interface
ext2spice - The link between extracted layout and the simulator
The user guide provides an extensive overview of the programs functions, analysis modes, elements, and interface.
Some example SPICE decks
A wide variety of versions of SPICE are available from the design automation industry and from academia. A good overview of the available options is presented in this design tool corner.
