Parse Spice Simulation Output With Matlab

Matlab and it’s various toolboxes offer great possibilities to work with large numerical data sets. These possibilities are extensively used by designers for analyzing Spice simulation results. BeSpice Wave Parser, our waveform parser library is available as Matlab toolbox with the complete functionality of the C/C++ interface. This allows engineers …

Parse Spice Simulation Output With Python

Python modules like Pandas, Anaconda and SciPy offer great possibilities to work with large numerical data sets. These possibilities to manipulate numerical data can do a great job for analyzing Spice simulation results. BeSpice Wave Parser, our waveform parser library has been extended to a Python module with the complete …

PSFXL Parser

PSFXL files are mainly generated by the Cadence Spectre simulator. The format is an extension of the PSF file format. It allows higher read/write speeds. Therefore Spectre generates PSFXL files for transient simulations. In addition to the data files Spectre writes a “logFile” which lists all files containing simulation data. …

PSF Parser

PSF (Parameter Storage Format) files are mainly generated by the Cadence Spectre simulator. The simulator stores it’s output data either in single or double precision binary or in a human-readable ascii format. Many other simulators also support the PSF file format. The Virtuoso design framework uses this format extensively. Some …

Waveform Parser Extensions

The BeSpice Waveform Parser can be extended over a plug-in API. This allows to extend the parser to file formats that are not supported natively. Every shared library that implements the plug-in API can be linked at runtime to extend the waveform parser. As BeSpice Wave is based on the  …

2016: What’s New ?

In the 2016 version of BeSpice Wave we added several new waveform parsers. Now we support all *.dat files generated by PSpice (Cadence Design Automation).  We also support psfxl files. Psfxl is the default output format of the Spectre simulator (Cadence Design Automation). We also read all analog output formats …

BeSpice Wave: Where to start?

Install your software package either by running the installer or by decompressing the compressed package. Launch BeSpice Wave. The binary is to launch is <install_directory>/analog_flavor/bin/bspwave Open the example files located in <install_directory>/analog_flavor/examples/bspwave/example The newly parsed file and it’s curves appear in the browser window. Open a new plot window by …
