Dynamic Schematic Editor - Spectrum Software

A Schematic Editor with Active Simulator oriented towards RF and Communication Circuits. Good support for Power Electronic Devices and Circuits like IGBT and Mosfet.

"The multi-page hierarchical schematic editor makes it easy to sketch a circuit. Once a circuit is created, you can do a transient, AC, DC, transfer function, sensitivity, or distortion with a simple command."

Integrated schematic editor and simulator

Dynamic Schematic Editor - Spectrum Software

Micro-Cap 10 is an integrated schematic editor and mixed analog/digital simulator that provides an interactive sketch and simulate environment for electronics engineers.

Animation lets objects change their display or respond to user clicks during a simulation. In this mode, a single analysis time step is taken and the schematic displays and animate devices are updated on the schematic. The animation components can also be used in a Dynamic DC analysis.
