Book Preface

User friendliness is a key factor for the commercial success of any simulation program. The growing complexity of integrated circuits and equipment makes this aspect more and more important. Despite numerous publications devoted to the Simulation Program with Integrated Circuit Emphasis (SPICE), it still scares the novice when its name is mentioned.

Developed in the mid-1970s by the University of California, Berkeley, the SPICE program’s main aim was to fulfill the needs of the electronic industry––mainly integrated circuit makers. However, with the support and funds from private editors, the SPICE program has evolved over a number of years into many practical and affordable packages, with emphasis on providing both low-priced and friendly access to beginners.

The performance of SPICE can significantly help you speed up the design phase of the equipment you are currently working on, even if SPICE is not able to generate an electronic schematic by itself! SPICE is inherently efficient because if you start working with an unfamiliar concept, it will quickly enable you to grasp the full meaning of any particular architecture by unveiling its peculiar waveforms. You can thus use the simulator to gain insight into the circuit you have to build and also ensure all parameters are taken into account before the breadboard phase.

This book has been written for power supply designers, experts in their fields, but also for beginners who would like to understand the secrets of switch-mode power conversion. Manipulating virtual components on a computer screen, without the hazard of high voltage, offers an interesting and safe way to learn the technique. Furthermore, the “experience” gained in simulation, and it is also true for experts simulating a novel concept, will let you feel more comfortable when breadboarding on the bench.
