Advanced Cell Characterization Using SmartSpice Scripting Features


In a previous article [1], the efficient use of the SmartSpice .MODIF statement for cell characterization was discussed. This article will focus on using advanced features of the SmartSpice scripting language to solve this problem in a more flexible manner.

Unlike most commercial simulators, SmartSpice provides the user with a powerful command interface which can be utilized in input decks in the form of command scripts [2]. These commands can be used to pre-process the input deck, altering parameters and running multiple simulations, and they can also be used to perform post-processing in the form of measurements, plotting, etc.
