Abstract / Description

Qucs is an open source circuit simulator with extensive device and circuit modeling capabilities. It is one of the GPL simulators supporting VerilogA compact model standardization. Versions are available for most of the popular computer operating systems. The package is equipped with a range of device and modeling features which allow fast prototyping of experimental compact device and circuit macromodels. These include, traditional subcircuits, equation defined devices and Verilog-A compact models generated using the ADMS compiler. Recent improvements to the Qucs/ADMS interface now allow a well defined procedure for VerilogA model construction. This paper outlines the structure and simulation capabilities of the Qucs simulator. To illustrate the performance of this emerging GPL simulator a number of examples taken from DC to RF are described. The paper also presents a comparative study of photodiode model development using the different Qucs modelling techniques, and finally introduces a new compact macromodel, with equation monitoring capabilities, for the EKV 2.6 MOSFET model.
