With one set of parameters specified, this spice simulation generates a dc transfer curve with capacitors open and inductors shorted. B2 Spice A/D v4 actually expands on the standard spice implementation. Standard spice allows the sweeping of one or two sources dc values. B2 Spice A/D v4 allows the user the sweep parameter to be temperature, or any device parameter, or any devices model parameter. When both sets of parameters are used, SPICE performs a dual sweep in which the first parameter is swept over its range for each value of the second parameter. The dual sweep can be useful for obtaining transistor characteristics.
The following screen snapshots show an example circuit, the DC Sweep setup and options, and the resulting simulation.
