    Hi,

    I'm looking for a good quality SPICE circuit analysis reference,
    something that presents an overview of the SPICE language and
    describes how to do all manner of circuit analysis with this tool.
    I've seen several on Amazon.com that look good:

    OrCAD PSpice and Circuit Analysis by John Keown
    SPICE by Gordon Roberts and Adel Sedra (companion to Microelectronic
    Circuits by Sedra and Smith)

    I'd really appreciate hearing from others that have found equal or
    better references, books and/or websites.

    Thanks,
    Tony

    My comment of spice is this. it does analyze perfects setup it will never tell you how good or bad the final design is going to be. it is a dumb animal it does exactly what you tell it to do like a PC it is dumb it does exactly what you tell it to do.
     
  3. Why?

    There is the standard Spice3 manual
    http://www.anasoft.co.uk/Spice3F5Manual.html
    There is the Standard XSpice (Most commercial spices use XSpice) manual
    http://www.anasoft.co.uk/xspice_pdf.zip

    These cover everything you need to know about the underlining mechanisms of
    Spice/XSpice. Ss far as actually *using* the tools, the help systems of the
    vendors Spice should be all that is required. Essentially, no one does raw
    spice nowadays.

    There are lot of extensions in most vendor Spices, some proprietary, the
    operation of which are covered in their help. Doing "all manner of analysis"
    for these tools are all pretty much GUI driven and specific to that tool, so
    I don't see that a generic, paid for spice book, is worth much.
