ps2sp [OPTION] infile > outfile


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)


-h, --help
displays the help screen
-v, --version
display version information and exit
switch means conversion of pspice table to spice 3 b-source instead of xspice core model (default)
switch means conversion of ^ spice 3 power to ** ltspice power and addition of tripdv=1 tripdt=1 in b-lines
for debugging all .param .func and .pfunc definitions (default is nodebug)
only output subckt expansions
inputfile is a sub.tmp file
only output lib expansions
inputfile is a lib.tmp file
determine the same count of open and closed paranthesis in b-lines (default is nocheck)
produces longer b-lines for some functions (default is tinylines = shorter b-lines)
allows ^ and ~ operators in the netfile (don't mix with ^ as power operator) use the ** operator as power instead
