SPLICE1 is a mixed-mode simulation program for large-scale integrated circuits. It performs concurrent electrical and logic simulation using event-driven selective-trace techniques. The electrical analysis uses a new algorithm, called Iterated Timing Analysis (ITA), which performs accurate electrical waveform analysis much faster than SPICE2. The logic analysis features a new MOS-oriented state model and a fanout dependent delay model, and handles bidirectional transfer gates in a consistent manner.

This report describes the new algorithms and the details of the implementation in SPLICE1.6. Program performance characteristics and a number of simulation results are also included.
