  2. From IC5141 spectre (with the new front end) can read SPICE models natively
    quite effectively. You need to use the +csfe command line option, or the
    spectre.envOpts useCsfe boolean t

    option in the .cdsenv (I think that's what it is called, from memory).

    Before then there is a tool called "spp" which can be used to convert the model
