Circuit simulation in Linux

  1. Nov 15, 2008 #1

    Does someone have successful experience working with GNU/open source circuit simulation tools in Linux? I tried gEDA, but it did not work well for me.

    If you've been successful in using such software, please write back with detailed experiences here. I use Microcap for my undergraduate circuits laboratory, and thats the only reason why I have to stick to Windows (I am a die hard Linux user otherwise). I was hoping to be able to use some equivalent of Microcap in Linux...

    (Worst case: I'll use WINE :tongue2:)

    That would be a good idea, my friend had one of those really small acer laptops which came with linux on it. It also had a free circuit simulator on it. I'll ask him what its called and get back to you.

    Fedora repos had gnucap, gspice & ngspice , irsim, Ktechlab, qucs --- which is pretty much what know of them.
