University of Berkeley, California, has been the cradle of developments in computer-aided analog simulation technology.  Back in the late 1960’s professor Ronald Rohrer of U.C. Berkeley with his students developed CANCER for developing and analyzing circuits.  Less than ten years later, after he had left U.C. Berkeley, CANCER was rewritten and re-named to SPICE (Simulation Program with Integrated Circuit Emphasis.

Its later version, Spice 2G6 was freely available as Fortran source code, and compiled in then proliferating minicomputers to be used for early analysis of analog circuits everywhere in the electronics industry.  Since then the program and especially component models have been developed very actively, and the use and reference of SPICE is getting more and more important when technologies scale through 65 to 45 to 32 nm.

U.C Berkeley is still one of the foremost universities in the world electronics hardware design education.
