quick jumps:

• Detailed documentation of SLiCAP: aim, capabilities, way of working, functions and syntax.
• Installation of SLiCAP, either manually or from running a MATLAB script.
• SLiCAP how to: short examples on various topics.
• SLiCAP tutorials, examples and exercises are organized in categories and sorted by tags on the Site menu!

## What it is and why you should use it¶

• SLiCAP is an acronym for: Symbolic Linear Circuit Analysis Program.
• SLiCAP is a more than a symbolic network simulation tool: ‘Symbolic SPICE’.
• SLiCAP helps you setting up and solving design equations of electronic circuits.
• SLiCAP is a MATLAB® application and SLiCAP output can be used in other MATLAB® routines.

### Benefits¶

• Speeds up the circuit engineering process
• Makes complex symbolic analysis doable
• MATLAB® based: allows integration in professional design environment
• Integrates documentation and design with many easy to use built-in functions for HTML reports with plots, tables, expressions, etc.
• Supports design education and knowledge building

### Features¶

• Accepts SPICE netlists as input
• Concurrent design and documentation
• Supports and facilitates Structured Electronic Design

### Capabilities¶
