NEEDS Berkeley Workshop 2016

Modelling using Verilog-A in MAPP: A Hands-On Workshop

8 AM - 6 PM
Thursday, Feb 4, 2016

University of California, Berkeley
Berkeley, CA 94720

Berkeley's Model and Algorithm Prototyping Platform (MAPP) is a MATLAB-based platform that provides a complete environment for developing, testing, experimentally validating, and inserting compact models in open source simulation platforms. It is also useful for prototyping new simulation algorithms.
This hands-on workshop will focus on the newly developed Verilog-A to ModSpec device model translator for MAPP, dubbed VAPP (Verilog-A Parser and Processor). The goal of the workshop is to illustrate how VAPP/MAPP facilitates the development of simulation ready compact models. An overview of MAPP's multi-physics modelling and simulation capabilities will also be provided. A hands-on refresher on MAPP will be provided for those who have no prior experience with it.
Please bring your laptop (running linux, OSX or Windows). It would be very helpful if you already have MATLAB installed and running on your laptop; otherwise you may need to access the hands-on components through the web.

Travel support will be available for NEEDS students. Please try to share a room, and ask your advisor to e-mail Mark Lundstrom at for travel support.

For other questions, please contact Vicki Johnson at
