Circuit simulation allows the designer to explore their ideas before committing to manufacture. Concepts can be verified and the circuit can be tuned quickly and accurately. Circuit simulation also gives the designer the opportunity to perform measurements that may not be physically possible on the workbench.
The Simulator is a true mixed-signal simulator, meaning that it can analyze circuits that include both analog and digital devices. The Simulator uses an enhanced version of the event-driven XSpice. It is fully SPICE3f5 compatible, as well as providing support for a range of PSpice® and LTSpice® device models.
The mixed-signal circuit simulator is configured and driven from the Simulation Dashboard.
The Dashboard provides:
As well as running a simulation from the Dashboard, you can also configure your circuit, generate a netlist and run a simulation from the Simulate menu.
