For some but not all circuit simulators, “A_gnd is a local reference node but
may be connected to Node 0 per user-configurable option”.
As Walter often says … “a rose by any other name …”
P.S. Please notice no use of the word “ground” was applied and no small cuddly

Subject: [ibis-interconn] Re: A_gnd in IBIS 6.1
So, after all this, how should we define/describe A_gnd in IBIS?
* is it something global
* is it something local
* is it a signal/power ground
* is it a chassis ground
* is it an earth ground
* is it a reference
* anything else?
Obviously some of these are nonsense, but (except for the last one)
they were all mentioned in this conversation one way or another…
By the way, if we want to call it a reference instead of ground, we
might want to consider a new IBIS reserved name for it: A_ref
(just be consistent with how we would refer to it in the text)…
