spice/SwitcherCad III
(revised 1/30/2008)
spice/SwitcherCad III
A freeware SPICE III circuit simulator written by MikeEngelhardt at Linear Technologieshttp://www.linear.com/ ±SPICE I and SPICE II were written using the FORTRANprogramming language. SPICE III was written using theC programming language (U.C. Berkeley, 1985).http://bwrc.eecs.berkeley.edu/Classes/IcBook/SPICE/)LTspice was written to support circuit designers whoevaluate or use Linear Technology products. ±It includes an extensive library of Linear Technologydevices.It has
schematic capture
and is much easier to use thantraditional text-based SPICE. ±Traditional SPICE requires a text file called a
that describes the circuit to be simulated. ±Withschematic capture, the user can enter a circuitusing schematic symbols and wires via a graphical user interface.
spice/SwitcherCad III
Is powerful and fast, but is not as intuitive fobeginners as simulators such as Multisim
 ±Requires more knowledge about SPICE directivesand terminology ±Has a limited (mostly proprietary) device library ±LTspice has only basic behavioral gates for digitalcircuits. It is expandable, but this requires knowledgeabout SPICE and device behavior.
Is worth learning about
 ±Since it is free, fast, and powerful, it is one of the mostwidely used circuit simulators at this time. ±Many professionals consider it to be superior to somecommercial simulators.
