SPICE It Up: Understanding and Using Op-Amp Macromodels (.PDF Download)

Modeling the performance of an analog device with SPICE is one of the standard techniques used by circuit designers to perform initial characterization and performance analysis before putting together a real-world circuit and testing it on the bench (Fig. 1). SPICE is an acronym for Simulation Program with Integrated Circuit Emphasis. It was originally developed at UC Berkeley in 1973 to verify transistor-level
