Best circuit simulators?

  1. Apr 2, 2007 #1
    for students, mid-level and pros

    i use circuitmaker 2000, it has the least features of the sims but it is fast and easy to use. what should i use as a step up (i have electronics workbench, proteus, orcad student).

    also just because i'm curious what do you guys use at work? :biggrin:

    What kind of circuits? Digital, analog, CPLD, FPGA, Verilog, etc.? Mixed signal too?

    I've been using several sims, but it seems that orCAD is the best. But if you prefer writing your own netlists, try any of spice variants ;)
