SYNOPSIS

ps2sp [OPTION] infile > outfile

DESCRIPTION

This utility is a SPICE netlist preprocessor.
It converts netlists in PSPICE syntax to an equivalent SPICE3/XSPICE netlist syntax.
Recognized are nearly all PSPICE features like:
 
* local and global parameter (expression) definition (.PARAM)
* parameter (expression) passing to subcircuits (PARAMS:)
* local and global function definition (.FUNC)
* E and G-device VALUE=f(V,I), TABLE and POLY lines
* E and G-device functions like IDT(), DDT(), LIMIT(), PWRS(), PWR(), IF(), MAX(), MIN(), relational ops, ...
* R-device VALUE=f(V,I), L-device FLUX=f(V,I) and C-device Q=f(V,I)
* spice2 like C and L-device POLY expressions
* pspice VSWITCH and ISWITCH models
* pspice .PROBE lines (also with expressions)
* R-device lines with temperature coefficients like TC=tc1,tc2
* pspice .STEP PARAM lines (not yet tested on GNU/Linux)
* pspice .LIB and .INC(lude) lines (not yet tested on GNU/Linux)
