(Obsolete) HICUM Level 2 PNP Transistor with Self-Heating: HICUM_L2_SH_P



This element is OBSOLETE and is replaced by the HICUM Level 2 Version 2.22 BJT Model (HICUM_L2A) element. This is a PNP implementation of the HICUM Level 2, version 2.1 transistor with support for self-heating.

Implementation Details

With the exception of the CTH and RTH parameters which support self-heating, all other parameters behave as in HICUM_L2. See HICUM_L2 for information on parameters and implementation.


This element does not have an assigned layout cell. You can assign artwork cells to any element. See “Assigning Artwork Cells to Layout of Schematic Elements” for details.

Recommendations for Use

Due to the additional complexity associated with modeling self-heating, (one additional NL branch and recomputation of all temperature compensation equations each time the model is evaluated), this model is slower than HICUM_L2_P. Consequently, we recommend using this model only when self-heating must be accounted for.

Operating Points

Operating point information is the same as in HICUM_L2.
