Introduction to device modeling and circuit simulation

Front Cover
An introduction to SPICE-oriented semiconductor device modeling. The SPICE program allows engineers to simulate both individual devices and electronic circuits, performing a large number of different analyses needed for tasks such as verification of circuit designs and prediction of circuit performance.

Combines two subjects -- SPICE simulation and device modeling -- which have been dealt with separately in the past, but are interdependent on each other.
-- Features a large number of well-prepared examples of circuit simulations immediately following the description of many device models.
