Obtaining an Spice-like simulator
One of the objectives of this course is to familiarize students with
Spice syntax. For this reason, the recommended spice simulator for
is Ngspice. The program
is free and source code is freely available. This program is installed
in the AT 4019 computer lab.
If you are running a Debian-based GNU/Linux distribution (Debian,
Ubuntu, Mint), install the ngspice package. Please make sure to visit
the Ngspice web site for
documentation and updates. If you run Windows, there is a windows
executable that can be downloaded from
the Ngspice page. Go to
the downloads section, click on the stable release and download
ngspice-24_120130.zip (or whatever is the stable release at the time).
can also be used. This program is free of charge and has no circuit
size limitations, but its source code is not freely available. This is
also installed in AT 4019.
Other free circuit simulators
- QUCS: Quite
universal circuit simulator. Recommended! very nice interface
and good support for RF/microwave circuits but syntax is not the same
as in Spice (please use a spice-based program for assignments)
- Cardoon circuit
simulator. Developed in Python for
research purposes. Recommended if you want to experiment changing the
source code to add new models/algorithms.
