2 OUTLINE Introduction to SPICE DC Analysis Transient Analysis AC Analysis Subcircuits Optimization Power Measurement

3 INTRODUCTION TO SPICE Simulation Program with Integrated Circuit Emphasis Developed in 1970’s at Berkeley Many commercial versions are available HSPICE is a robust industry standard Has many enhancements that we will use Written in FORTRAN for punch-card machines Circuits elements are called cards Complete description is called a SPICE deck

4 WRITING SPICE DECKS Writing a SPICE deck is like writing a good program Plan: sketch schematic on paper or in editor Modify existing decks whenever possible Code: strive for clarity Start with name, , date, purpose Generously comment Test: Predict what results should be Compare with actual Garbage In, Garbage Out!

5 SOME FACTS AND RULES ABOUT SPICE Spice is not case sensitive. Rsource and RsOuRcE and RSOURCE are equivelent. All element names must be unique. You can't have two capacitors that both are named “C1”. The first line in the data file is used as a title. Spice will ignore this line as circuit data. Put your name and title. There must be a node designated "0" (Zero). This is the reference node against which all voltages are calculated. Each node must have at least two elements attached to it. The last line in any data file must be ".END" (a period followed by the word "end.") All lines that are not blank (except for the title line) must have a character in column 1, the leftmost position on the line. Use "*" (an asterisk) in column 1 in order to create a comment line. Use "+" (plus sign) in column 1 in order to continue the previous line (for better readability of very long lines). Use "." (period) in column 1 followed by the rest of the "dot command" to pass special instructions to the program. Use the designated letter for a part in column 1 followed by the rest of the name for that part (no spaces in the part name). Use "whitespace" (spaces or tabs) to separate data fields on a line. Use ";" (semicolon) to terminate data on a line if you wish to add commentary information on that same line.

18 DATA TRANSFER TO MATLAB Assume I have the previous circuit Example_TRAN.cir. After you run Simulate now you can import your data to MATLAB for further analysis. In LTSpice go to File → Export Now you can open your MATLAB and relocate MATLAB directory where you saved “Example_ TRAN.txt” file. Highlight the data values (Transient analysis time will be added) Change the file name. Keep the extension (mace it.xls if you want to open in excel)

19 DATA TRANSFER TO MATLAB (CONT.) Now you can open your MATLAB and relocate MATLAB directory where you saved “Example_ TRAN.txt” file. In MATLAB command window type >> load Example_TRAN.txt will create and error. This is due to forst line of the txt file. MATLAB cannot read that first line as data. Delete that line and save your file. Do not forget the order of the columns. (1 st Column is time, 2 nd I(Cp) and 3 rd one is I(Lp)) >> load Example_TRAN.txt In workspace of MATLAB you will see the loaded data. It hae 202 rows and 3 columns. Next step we will save the data as time, I(Cp) and I(Lp). Txt file xls file

20 DATA TRANSFER TO MATLAB (CONT.) In workspace of MATLAB you will see the loaded data. It hae 202 rows and 3 columns. Next step we will save the data as time, I(Cp) and I(Lp). >> t=Example_TRAN(:,1); %This will save t as time variable >> I_Cp=Example_TRAN(:,2); %This will save I_Cp as time I(Cp) >> I_Lp=Example_TRAN(:,3); %This will save I_Lp as time I(Lp) Your work place shoul look like this Now we can plot these >> >> plot (t, I_Cp, t,I_Lp)
