By Jaijeet Roychowdhury

Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, University of California, Berkeley, CA

Published on


This presentation is Part 2 (48 minutes) of an 87 minute lecture, that is an excerpt from a lecture on Electronic Device Models from the course "Numerical Simulation and Modeling", EECE 219A Fall 2013.

Part 1 of this lecture can be found here.. The slides for this half of the lecture are the same as the download from part1.

This excerpt deal with:

  • The need for smoothness in models
  • Smoothing discontinuous models
  • Domain and overflow problems
