The paper presents a biography of the father of the SPICE program and driving force behind the development of IC simulation who will receive the 1998 IEEE medal of honor. 
Highlights in Physical Simulation and Analysis at ICCAD
Six papers were chosen to represent twenty years of research in physical simulation and analysis, three papers addressing the problem of extracting and simulating interconnect effects and threeExpand
A classroom‐based simulation‐centric approach to microelectronics education
A novel method for incorporating SPICE simulation tools into the classroom is presented, and substantial benefits for students to using this methodology and positive responses to the active learning are shown. Expand
An efficient behavioral description frontend tool for mixed-mode SPICE simulation
The proposed software tool efficiently transforms a behavioral SFG description into a netlist suitable for SPICE, which has been proven to be efficient in terms of its capabilities for mixing structural and behavioral descriptions in a single netlist, as well as for its simplicity and usefulness when dealing with large linear systems.

The 2N3055: a case history
The 2N3055 power transistor was introduced by the Radio Corporation of America (RCA) in the early 1960s. It was one of the first silicon power transistors, offered unrivalled second breakdownExpand
The logic of software design
The authors provide an overview of how logic can be used throughout the software development cycle, and discuss what methods can be introduced in the computer science curriculum to support softwareExpand
Circuit Simulation for Nanoelectronics
Though electronics is a quite young field, it is found almost everywhere in nowadays life. It became an important industrial sector within a short time frame. Behind this success story, very advancedExpand
A Short SPICE Tutorial
In the following tutorial, the “lowest common denominator” of all the SPICE versions is described, which is, theSPICE input files will work with all the versions (known to the author). Expand
Formal methods in the classroom: the logic of real-time software design
An overview of how formal methods -and particularly real-time formal methods- can be used throughout the software development cycle, and what methods and tools can be introduced in the computer science curriculum to support software development is provided. Expand
