Principles of Active Electrical Circuit Modeling

  • François E. Cellier

Abstract

In this chapter, we shall discuss the tools and techniques of today’s professional circuit designers. We shall discuss how SPICE works and what additional tools exist that support SPICE, such as the PROBE feature for viewing simulation trajectories graphically or WORKVIEW [6.11] for schematic capture. We shall then explore the pros and cons of using DYMOLA [6.3] for electronic circuit modeling.
