JSPICE is a simulator for superconductor and semiconductor circuits, and is based on the general-purpose circuit simulation program SPICE2; it is incorporated with the Josephson junction model. It supports the same SPICE2 format and is running in the batch mode. Like SPICE2, it has ASCII plotting facility built in.

The simulator is only valid for transient simulations and DC operating point; AC small-signal analyses are not allowed.

Hardware/Operating System Requirements: UNIX (Ultrix 4.0, HPUX 7.0, Sys V); VMS; math coprocessor not necessary if a complete math library is available, however it is recommended.
