interpLTspice

November 8, 2014 2 comments
% This function interpolates data returned from the runLTspice function so
% as to make the time vector evenly spaced.
%
% example usage:
%   asc_file = 'filename.asc';
%   volt_curr_list =  runLTspice(asc_file);
%   results = runLTspice(asc_file, volt_curr_list);
%   fs = 10000;
%   interp_results = interpLTspice(results, fs);
