Linear Technology Releases LTspice IV for Multicore Processors
Parallel processing has been a long-standing challenge for SPICE simulators. LTspice IV implements proprietary methods that efficiently parallelize tasks that would require as little as 5us to run single-threaded.
LTspice IV also includes integrated schematic capture and waveform viewing. While it has been associated with switch-mode power design (it ships with over 1000 models of switch-mode regulators and controllers), LTspice IV is not an SMPS-specific SPICE program but rather a general-purpose SPICE that includes new spice components so it is fast enough to interactively simulate SMPSs. LTspice IV is not artificially limited by component or node count.
LTspice IV outperforms other commercially available SPICE programs. Linear's LTspice IV is a free download at www.linear.com/designtools/software.
