This letter describes the program structure and performance toward a newly developed VLSI circuit simulator, called SUPER-SPICE. In the SUPER-SPICE program, the waveform relaxation method is implemented. A small circuit analyzer is based on SPICE2. Therefore, with attention paid to simulation modes, not only transient analysis, but also DC and DC transfer curves, can be simulated by the simulator. Further, many kinds of nonlinear device models in SPICE2 are permitted to be used for VLSI circuit simulation.
