This book is an introduction to the use of two software packages, MINNIE and HSPICE, in circuit analysis. It will be suitable for anyone encountering MINNIE and HSPICE for the first time, be they first year undergraduates, or professional designers. Beginning with a simple introduction to the software packages, the user is led through a comprehensive series of tutorials and exercises designed to aid their understanding of a wide range of electrical and electronic circuits. Both passive and active devices are featured, in circuits ranging from sample RC filters to complex wideband amplifiers and pulse generators. The book is unique in its integration of MINNIE and HSPICE as teaching tools and in its highly practical "hands-on" approach to the subject of circuit analysis. MINNIE and HSPICE are both available under the ECAD initiative to all British universities and polytechnics and are amongst the most widely used circuit simulation packages.

Part 1 Getting started: the system; initial conditions; start up screen; printing the screen contents; draw your circuit. Part 2 Passive circuits: frequency response of the low-pass RC circuit; simple passive circuits; mutual inductance and transformers; a two loop RLC and M network. Part 3 Introducing active devices: the available components; drawing active devices; captions; frequency response of a simple common emitter amplifier. Part 4 File and analysis features: filing system; calculating gains, input impedances and other functions; current gain and input impedances of the common emitter; source and/or output impedance. Output options: selecting your results for display; editing your y-axis; measuring your results; scale intervals - edit your x-axis; scroll; draw legend; the series RLC circuit - voltage drive case; the parallel tuned inductor - current drive case; the Miller effect - capacitance multiplication. Part 6 Multivalued resistors: investigating the common emitter stage. Part 7 Looking at waveforms: common emitter amplifier with sinusoidal voltage drive; a wide band bipolar amplifier; class AB (push-pull) bipolar amplifier; operational amplifiers - simple band-pass active filter, the Wien bridge oscillator. Part 8 Linear circuits - square waves and step functions: square waves, pulse trains and step functions; square wave response of the simple differentiating circuit; the common emitter with square wave input - waveforms and their harmonic contents; transient response of a switched RC circuit - using initial conditions. Part 9 Non-linear circuits and waveform shaping: diode clamp and transistor squarer; operational amplifiers - peak detector. Appendices: Control codes; HSPICE discrete components library; answers.
