Circuit Lab simulator website - any other simulators ?
« on: January 13, 2013, 08:15:21 pm »
I stumbled into Circuitlab.com and it seems to have a neat simulator, but it's online only. Anyone used it ? are they other free simulator tools out there that you can download and are intuitive to use (other than LT spice)

I prefer LTSpice myself, but TINA's pretty good

But you can't make your own circuits can you ? only test out different parameters on preset circuit blocks

Yes, you can create your own circuits. Just right click in the black area of the screen and "Add Wire" or "Add Resistor" or Passives etc.

Here is an example of one I made:

Tina TI. not just it has intuitive debugging tools, but you can program all you like in SPICE easy. but it has few short of items compared to ltspice for eg transmission line. so i use both.

In my software list there are many listed, and there are probably many more. I haven't updated it in a long time..

depends on your internet provider and speed, basically just a few MB of download ;)

edit: opps sorry i didnt pay attention to details. you are asking tina, not tina-ti sorry. tina-ti is a subset of tina specifically made for Texas Instrument i guess. here's the tina's site, it depends on who's paying, it can range from 89eur to 1800eur i checked for my country. the mixed signal simulator probably costs an arm and leg...

yup elCap your thread is very usefull list deserves to be sticky. i bookmarked it.

Like Tina-TI, this isn't a full version, but Analog Devices Inc has a 'free' version of NI's MultiSim.  I'm not sure what the limits are.
