Overview

Welcome to the Circuits group! If you are a student or practicing engineer or scientist who wants to learn more about circuits or an instructor looking for materials to use in a course, you can find material here that includes complete courses and seminars on specialized topics.

Much of the material is freely accessible by any visitor, but by joining this group, you can participate in discussions on topics of interest to you, post items to the group wiki or even work on a project with other group members. Additionally, as a group member you may receive notifications about new materials and events of interest to the circuits group members. Adding events to the group calendar is as easy as clicking on “add event”.

You can also contribute more substantial resources to nanoHUB through the resource contribution process, and then send a message to the group manager so that links to those resources can be added to this group.

This group contains the following:

UC Berkeley SPICE3 Tutorial

By Tien-Cheng Bau and Samiha Mourad
SPICE is a general-purpose circuit simulation program for nonlinear dc, nonlinear transient, and linear ac analyses. Circuits may contain passive components (resistors, capacitors, inductors), active devices (transistors and diodes), and independent voltage and current source…, etc. In this tutorial, we will illustrate the use of the simulator with a CMOS inverter.
