While the integrated circuit industry thrives on constant change and new technology, the SPICE circuit simulation program has been around the industry for almost forty years.? As a result, many engineers who make use of this software werenâ??t even born when Larry Nagel released its first version.
This talk will chronicle the journey of SPICE since the late 1960s: its origins as a teaching program at UC Berkeley, its spread into industry, and its creation of a cottage industry that supports and expands the variants of â??alphabet SPICE.???? Dr. Nagel will credit the various contributors to this saga while sharing a bounty of amusing stories.
Larry will also speculate on how this particular program has evolved while staying pretty much the same, a claim that likely no other computer program can make.
