Using SPICE Models in VHDL-AMS

As illustrated throughout this book, the VHDL-AMS modeling language is extremely powerful and flexible for developing simulation models. Many tool vendors extend the power of VHDL-AMS even further by supporting the incorporation of SPICE models into the simulation environment.

In this appendix, the approaches taken by several tool vendors to incorporate SPICE models into their VHDL-AMS simulation environments are presented. Examples of these approaches are also illustrated.
