I am attempting to print out my circuit netlist from KiCAD to test if there is a difference between ngspice27 and ngspice34 in terms of models (I get something different with KiCAD than Qucs-S which uses ngspice27). The problem is standalone ngspice does not recognize the node labels I put into KiCAD (using global labels) so they all show up as “zero length vectors”; these node labels are used for .FUNC, .IC, and .NODESET commands in the netlist. When I remove these extra node labels I get ngspice34 to run, but instead of returning the expected vectors it returns:
"yes FALSE TRUE boltz c e echarge i i kelvin no pi planck yes"
as the list of vectors, which appears closer to the output from just a diode model. I use the following to create the data output:
option numdgt =7
wrdata location all
Is there some way to get the node labels to work properly with external ngspice?
