Microcap 12 is free
« on: August 06, 2019, 12:00:54 pm »
From another forum (user janoc) so I don't want to take credit but it is a really nice find so I wanted to share it.

The Microcap simulator software is now a free (as in beer) download:

http://www.spectrum-soft.com/download/download.shtm

The company is apparently shutting down so they have released the software for free. It is Windows only but it supposedly runs in Linux with Wine too.

Nice to have a pretty powerful alternative to LTSpice!

Maybe not. Maybe he quoted from the same user's post in a thread from another forum.

You can't delete the first post in a thread. No need to. Posting in good faith to help others is no sin.

Sorry @spudboy488, that was a petty comment, my apologies.

It was a good idea to flag the fact in the EDA section as people might have been missed over in the Projects and Designs section. Maybe next time, just a link to the other thread would be good idea.

The forum doesn't really seem to have a mechanism for "there's something interesting/relevant over there" and it is very partitioned these days. Maybe moving the original thread is appropriate, but then many people who don't tend to visit the EDA section very often (me included) would not have seen it.  :-\
