Re: IBIS / SPICE simulation
I started down the path of creating an IBIS-to-Spice converter a couple
of years ago. I researched it enough to decide it was feasible, then
discovered a commercial product demo that would do enough of what I
needed at the time and stopped working on it.
I'd just about forgotten about it until you mentioned it.

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
