    Welcome to the PF. There are a number of SPICE packages available. Which one you use depends a bit on what you will use it for. HSPICE is the gold standard, but is not generally as easy to use as the more integrated packages like MicroCAP. Here is a thread where we talked about some different packages:

    TINA from TI and the National Instruments package are both SPICE-based. Pretty much all circuit simulation software is based on a SPICE core.

    What are you trying to do? What kind of circuits do you want to simulate? Why do you not want to use software that is based on SPICE? Do you hate Berkeley or something? :wink:

    My Electrical Eng. department works almost exclusively with Ansoft/HFSS for simulations.

    You can download a free student version of Ansoft designer, Ansoft Designer SV
