•  Define a mathematical function and assign a global node or parameter.

•  Set a node at a specific voltage and include a library file.

•  Use the option parameters and set their values to avoid conference problems.

•  Perform parametric and step variations on the analysis.

•  Assign tolerances of components and model parameters.

•  Perform advanced analyses such as Fourier series of output voltages and currents, and noise, worst-case, and Monte Carlo analyses.
