In this paper we present a teaching method to concisely familiarize students of computer science and electrical engineering with the simulation of analog circuits. The principal focus of the contribution is the design methodology of an analog simulator, not the usage of a commercial one. The fundamental construction features and the functionality of well-known commercial simulators like SPICE are illustrated by means of a simple simulation program.
