Anyone use CircuitMaker2000 ?
« on: March 16, 2017, 01:01:36 pm »
Its a freeware circuit simulator, its pretty easy to use. However its old and not very good it seems and anything to do with oscillating circuits. Maybe it just the simple ones I've tried to make, but they're all just examples from teaching electronics sites.

Probably a bunch of other things it doesn't simulate well either.  Somewhere I have an older copy of Multisim, time to dig it up and try it.

I use it and other quite often. It seems simplest, sort of, but libraries out of date.
I think you can import models, I swear I did it long ago, but not recently.

For simulation I mostly use LTSPICE or sometimes QUCS / NGSPICE type tools or the web based simulators from various IC vendors.  There's also TI's custom version of TINA that is free though I've had less occasion to use it than LTSPICE in general.

Nothing I've tried making oscillates. Once and a while this this while grape a few cycles of base current.
