|off||Device is initially nonconducting, for circuit convergence assistance.|
|area=val||Scale factor that multiplies all currents and other values, effectively modifying the MESFET area.|
|ic=vds,vgs||The initial voltages (initial condition) for transient analysis.|
|icvds=vds||The initial vds (initial condition) for transient analysis.|
|icvgs=vgs||The initial vgs (initial condition) for transient analysis.|
The nd, ng, and ns are the drain, gate, and source nodes, respectively. The modname is the model name, area specifies the area factor, and off indicates an initial condition of the device for dc analysis. If the area factor is omitted, a value of 1.0 is assumed. The initial condition specified using ic or alternatively icvds and icvgs are intended for use with the uic option in transient analysis, when a transient analysis is desired starting from other than the quiescent operating point. The .ic line provides another way to set initial conditions.
