The version of SIMPLIS covered by this manual may only be used within the SIMetrix environment.

Usually, circuits are entered using the SIMetrix schematic editor which takes care of many of the syntax details covered elsewhere in this manual. Full details may be found in SIMetrix User's Manual/Schematic Editor

It is also possible to run SIMPLIS using a netlist prepared by hand or with another schematic entry tool. This must be done within the SIMetrix environment and the following sections describe how.

Some features of the SIMetrix schematic editor that are useful for running SIMPLIS are also repeated here for convenience.
