IBIS / SPICE simulation


Hello everyone,

I am working on an IBIS parser for kicad integration.
IBIS is a standard format to I/O buffers, that allows for "fast" and accurate signal integrity simulations. While parsing the IBIS format is not so hard, well... I have data to simulate, but no simulator...

I was wondering if anybody in this mailing list had knowledge about IBIS and / or SPICE simulation ? From the info I gathered, it is quite "easy" to convert to convert to a SPICE model, but maybe there are better ways to do.
( If we could avoid a whole simulator from scratch, that would be nice )

Basically, an IBIS file is :
- R L C parameters,
- voltage vs current tables
- voltage vs time tables
