17.1. SPICE References¶
The technical report No. UCB/ERL M520 written by Nagel gives an interesting description of the algorithms involved in Spice. I recommend to read part 2 and 3 that explain the equation formulation. The next parts describes the numerical analysis.
The relevant references on Spice are by date of publication:
Technical Report No. UCB/ERL M382; SPICE (Simulation Program with Integrated Circuit Emphasis); Nagel, Laurence W. and Pederson, D.O.; April 1973
Technical Report No. UCB/ERL M520; SPICE2: A Computer Program to Simulate Semiconductor Circuits; Nagel, Laurence W.; 1975
Technical Report No. UCB/ERL M89/42; Analysis of Performance and Convergence Issues for Circuit Simulation; Quarles, Thomas L.; 1989
