We have some sims that run absurdly slow. What are your favorite speedups? In LT spice, I have arbitrarily done .opt reltol=.002 .opt abstol=5n .opt trtol=5 but that's just guessing. It may work with my parts but mess up an encrypted model that I have no visibility into. Sometimes one solver is unaccountably better than another.

IntuitSoft has a program called Spicemod (http://www.intusoft.com/spicemod.htm#Requirements) It's a "SPICE model builder" that takes data sheet parameters and makes SPICE models -- including using subcircuits, if just a .MODEL statement isn't going to be enough. I'm skeptical. Has anyone used it? Have you had good success? Do you think that models (particularly IGBT models) that ...

Analog Devices makes some nice PECL comparators, but the data sheets are old and iffy, and there don't seem to be any Spice models. It was raining and snowing and I couldn't go skiing, so I did a behavioral model. I plan to use one of these to make a pretty good 500 MHz oscillator, so I wanted to get it mostly right. Jim's TANH thing is a nice way to make a saturating stage. The open-emit...

Could someone here shed some light on this ? I am experimenting with envelope detection at RF frequencies with SPICE.

THe mixer output is fed into a Schottky diode(1N5818, BAR42 etc.,) and a shunt capacitor is attached to the Schottky diode cathode. ...
