MacSpice is a tool compatible with Spice 3f5 capable of analyzing and simulating the behavior of all kinds of circuit boards, from the most simple to the most complex.
Simulate the behavior of any circuit board before your actually build it.
It is a lot cheaper to carry out a simulation than to build a prototype. Therefore, before starting to produce any electrical design, it is essential to check that its behaves as expected. For this purpose, you can always rely on a simple tool like MacSpice.
How MacSpice works
To simulate the functioning of a printed circuit board it's only necessary to have access to the netlist, a text file with the specifications of the circuit input that includes a list with the circuit's components and the nodes they are connected to. And after that it will only be necessary to open it from the program's command line. If you have a file with CIR extension you'll be able to launch it directly with MacSpice to view the diagrams associated with the simulation. From the command line terminal it will also be possible to obtain values like the output impedance, transfer function, …, depending on the complexity of the circuit.
