looking for spice models
I'm looking for some spice models:
2SK389 2SJ109 2SA1376 2SC3478 2sc3852 I've been searching at the web, unfortunately I've no success. Maybe anyone has some information for me?

I have also tried to get spice models for Japanese transistors.
I even had my Japanese wife call Toshiba in Japan to see if they would point me in the right direction. Toshiba had them, but wanted me to promise that I would not share them with anybody. So I let it go. I would have thought that there are SPICE programs for sale in Japan and that manufactures would make the models SPICE models availabe, but not that I could find. My advice, try to do some backward cross referencing and copy and rename the closest 2Nxxxx type you can find. Or start with the generic transistor model and tweek the SPICE variables. Good Luck, Aud_Mot

Thanks.. I have been looking for SPICE models for some of those transistors/FETs too but couldn't find any.

Try FairchildSemi. Their Korean unit makes some 2SAxxxx and 2SCxxxx devices. They replace the "2" with a "K" to become KSAxxxx and KSCxxxx. Iv'e been able to get SPICE models for some BJT's this way.

Unfortunately variety is the Spice of life.....
II don't believe these Jfet models are even close and post some alternate models. you would be well advises to read the definitions of the parameters and compare with the data sheet. The Bias group of the fet and the quiescent current at which you are using it will effect the model. Different models are often given for the particular bias group (Y GR BL V ) If you are not careful you will wind up with a simulation that is wildly different from the one you build and measure. A little knowledge is a dangerous thing.

You're probably right.
I have spend some time the last month trying to learn more about SPICE and the models. But I haven't studied FETs yet, I have you just studied the diode and transistor models, and I'm excited to see all the parameters and to play with them to see have they affect the results. And I have downloaded some SPICE models from various manufactures, models for the same "transistors", but I found that the parameters did vary a lot, sometimes not very much, other times quite a lot. The SPICE program I'm using use XSPICE, I have tried to find information about the differences between this version of SPICE and PSPICE.. and others, but it isn't very easy. This week I also got some books from the library at school: The SPICE book  Andrei Vladimirescu SPICE practical spice modeling  Ron Kielkowski By the way....thanks for the links

The Spice Book from Andrj Vladimirescu is excellent, some kind of bible...
FETs parameters always vary from part to part. If you take one part and get the spice parameters they will be different from another part and from a third one. Parameter variation from 70% to +200% is normal with FETs so don't bother. Altough ist interestig what happens when using different SPICE models in simulation. In a good design this should not result in variing significantally. So its on yoou to look careful on DC bias points and if they are in that Range waht you expected. SPICE is only a design tool as well as a CADSystem. Making a good design it's on you. Thanks Fred for the different models I'll try it. I do not expect a lot differences in a differential stage when using 2SK389 or 2SJ109. SEDesigns most often needed selected parts for IDss. I know where I'm talking about, because some days ago I tried to match some 2SK170BL out of a lot of 50. I'm happy to find some similar pairs but they differ from more than 10%. This means that a robust design is much more necessary when using FETs vs bipolars.

Agree with Fred,
In my MicroCap7 there is a whole bunch of Japanese transistors included, including the ones listed here. But most are far off the real thing so not very useful. Cheers.
