Q: Is WinSpice compatible with Spice2
When you open a Spice2 netlist, a preprocessor converts the Spice2
directives into a netlist plus a set of Spice3 commands which emulate
the operation of Spice2 which has a preset order of analysis.
Most directives are supported - let me know if you find any Spice2
netlists which are incompatible.
Q: Does WinSpice work work with
As far as I know, yes. Its use of the Windows API is minimal
it uses no special DLLs, controls etc. I know that it runs on
Win2000 and WinXP because I use these two OSs daily.
Q: Does WinSpice have any device, memory
or node limitations?
WinSpice has no limitations at all - I have been sent enormous circuits
which have eaten up over 300Mb of memory without a hiccup.
Q: I keep getting a nag message appear. How do I get rid of
This message only appears if you use any non-Spice3 features that I
have added to the original Spice3 core. If you restrict your use to
Spice3 features and model parameters, you will not see the nag screen.
If your circuit seems not to have any non-Spice3 features in it, it is
likely that any imported device models will be using PSpice or HSpice
syntax. You can prevent the messages altogether by registering the
program whereupon I will send you a license key file. If you
using WinSpice for professional purposes, you must register.
Q: Is WinSpice available for Linux?
I havenít tried it myself, but I know that it works under Wine. I am
looking into creating a version of WinSpice which runs natively on
Linux using an open-source, cross-platform windows library.
should mean that the Windows and Linux versions will operate almost
identically on both platforms. A Linux version will be available in
