Abstract / Description

Current releases of the popular Qucs GPL circuit simulator, the freely available LTspice IV simulator and the open source OpenModelica physical simulation package offer substantial compact semiconductor device modelling capabilities, including equation defined macromodelling facilities and access to either Verilog-A code or Modelica language compilers. This paper introduces a compact modelling technique based on a model template structure which exploits common hardware description language features found among a number of the current freely available simulation packages. An extended version of the standard SPICE diode model is used to demonstrate the power and modelling flexibility of the proposed template model. The cross-package modular approach to compact semiconductor device modelling presented in this paper also stresses the role new modelling techniques will take on as simulator technology evolves in the future.
