Spice Simulation

Easy-PC supports solutions for Spice simulation. Dedicated Spice netlist outputs have been added to the Easy-PC Schematic Capture editor to enable different 'variants' of Spice netlist to be exported. Each Spice vendor has their own version on the standard Spice netlist, Easy-PC is capable of exporting these based on their nuances .

The Spice netlist options are available at no extra charge and as part of the integrated solution provided as standard. In addition, a 'generic' Spice netlist format is also available on the menu for products which are not listed.

The list below shows the different Spice products supported and the level of support or integration provided.
