SPICE

I was looking at your ideas for GSoC and I was interested in particular on the SPICE development, I am an mid level electric engineering student and I would like to know what kind of skills you expect from one taking that project

Re: SPICE

Hi Manuel,

The key idea of the enhancement is to use ngspice (or any other
opensource software) as the simulation engine for SPICE described parts
while keeping the Scicos simulation engine for the remaining blocks.

First, I think that you should know the SPICE language concepts (not
only through an EDA). You should also understand the simulation concepts
of Xcos/Scicos for the continuous behavior.

Another integration of an external simulation engine (Modelicac) has
already been performed on Xcos/Scicos and you can read some papers there
[http://www.scicos.org/scicosmodelica.html].

But I think that the best way for you to evaluate your skills is to try
writing a good proposal. Good luck :)

Regards,
