Many devices are supported by intrinsic models, including resistor, capacitor and inductor models; Statz for GaAs FETs; levels 1, 2 and 3 of SPICE MOSFET models with charge conservation; BSIM1 and BSIM3 (versions 1 and 2) MOSFET models; diodes; bipolar junction transistors; junction field-effect transistors; ideal lossy and lossless transmission lines; and voltage and current-controlled switches. Analog behavioral modeling also is included.
