    Many parts with leading-edge technologies (e.g., microprocessors, low-voltage logic devices, and high-capacity DRAMs) are available mostly in commercial or industrial temperature ranges. Some companies are responding by using the available parts in temperature ranges wider than those for which they are specified (uprating). The use of uprated parts should be considered as an option to mitigate env... View full abstract»

    The idea of standard compact (SPICE-like) model equations has gained support recently throughout the semiconductor industry. In the past, compact models have been developed independently either by a single company or by a university or research group. These models have lacked diverse technology coverage and normally were not fully tested or productized. The concept of standardization is embraced b... View full abstract»

    Introduces a simple technique for implementing nonuniform coupled transmission lines with frequency-dependent parameters into SPICE. The proposed method relies on the analog behavioral modeling option, which bypasses the problems of circuit synthesis and the need to develop sophisticated techniques for analysis of these kind of structures. We describe basic principles that serve to construct the m... View full abstract»
