Excel tunes up your schematic files
This article, by prolific author Kendall Castor-Perry, expands on a previous article and details how to transfer a spreadsheet-based circuit design directly to the LTSpice simulator, and provides some practical information on how to do it. The approach takes advantage of the ASCII formatting used by LTSpice for its .asc schematic files. The article includes both a description of the method and a worked-out example, and also includes links to the author's many previous articles.
