Abstract

Since the very beginning of the Modelica development ambitions for electronic simulation exist. The electronic simulator SPICE; the SPICE models and the SPICE netlists grew to a quasi standard in electronics simulation for the last 30 years. That is why the wish arose to have SPICE models available in Modelica. This paper deals with modeling the SPICE3 models in Modelica directly extracted from the original SPICE3 source code. This courses the problem of transforming the sequential simulator-internal model descriptions of SPICE to the declarative description from Modelica. To solve this problem a way was developed and tested for some SPICE3 semiconductor models. The actual library is presented and further plans are shown.
