Reports the parallelization on a shared-memory vector multiprocessor of the computationally intensive components of a circuit simulator-matrix assembly (including device model evaluation) and the unstructured sparse linear system solution. A theoretical model is used to predict the performance of the lock-synchronized parallel matrix assembly, and the results are compared to experimental measur
