Abstract / Description

Current trends in circuit simulation technology suggest a strong movement towards software packages which promote equation defined compact semiconductor device modeling and circuit macromodeling. Today, the Verilog-A subset of the VerilogAMS hardware description language is one of the most popular choices of hardware description language for model construction. The “Quite universal circuit simulator” (Qucs) is a GPL software package supporting the MOS-AK VerilogA standardization initiative. This paper outlines how equation centered modeling can act as a strong support vehicle for the construction of new device models and circuit macromodels. The material presented in the text explores the relationship between device model specifications, equation defined devices and Verilog-A code generation. A number of examples demonstrate the capabilities of the model construction tools implemented by the Qucs development team.
