SPICE is a computer program designed to simulate analog electronic circuits. Its original intent was for the development of integrated circuits, from which it derived its name: Simulation Program with Integrated Circuit Emphasis(SPICE). Integrated circuits, unlike board-level designs composed of discrete parts, are impossible to breadboard before manufacture. Further, the high costs of photolithographic masks and other manufacturing prerequisites make it essential to design the circuit to be as close to perfect as possible before the integrated circuit is first built. Simulating the circuit with SPICE is the industry-standard way to verify circuit operation at the transistor level before committing to manufacturing an integrated circuit. Hence it is important for every researcher, designer in the area of Electrical, electronic & computer Science to understand the art of using this software to simulate and verify the required output of a analog, digital or mixed type circuit before the actual fabrication is done. These tools can also be effectively utilized to verify any circuit analysis obtained from analytical method. This course will give a comprehensive knowledge to simulate any circuit containing analog & digital devices.
