**Interview with the author**: Analog electronics without the trial and horror

- A Book that puts the design of analog electronic circuits in the perspective of information processing
- It presents a design approach based on concepts from physics, systems engineering, information theory, network theory and control theory
- It is used in the courses Structured Electronic Design offered by the TU Delft, Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics & Computer Science and the High Tech Institute.
- Includes many SLiCAP examples
- The author has more than 35 years of experience in analog design and post graduate design education
- Errata

## Courses¶

BSc, MSc and post-graduate courses Structured Electronic Design offered by the TU Delft, Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics & Computer Science and the High Tech Institute.

## SLiCAP: a symbolic circuit analysis tool¶

**SLiCAP**: **S** ymbolic **Li** near **C** ircuit **A** nalysis **P** rogram, is a **Free**
Symbolic Spice tool for deriving and solving design equations of analog electronic circuits.

SLiCAP

**MATLAB version will not longer be updated**

Version 0.6 is the last release of SLiCAP for MATLAB users.
This is because the core of SLiCAP is written in MuPAD code. This code cannot longer be maintained because *The Mathworks* removed the MuPAD notebook functionality.
The alternative of using solely MATLAB code and MATLAB live scripts has been explored but rejected because of its extremely slow performance.

Development and support of SLiCAP for MATLAB will end in 2021.

**A free open source (python) version of SLiCAP has now become available**

Users are kindly requested to migrate (and contribute) to the new, open source version SLiCAP_python:

**SLiCAP_python**is written in python and maxima CAS.**SLiCAP_python**is fully compatible with Jupyter notebooks.**SLiCAP_python**performs faster than the MATLAB version of SLiCAP.

**SLiCAP** is used in all courses Structured Electronic Design offered by the TU Delft, Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics & Computer Science and the High Tech Institute.
