High frequency design made easy

SPsim is an all new simulation suite for Analogue, RF and Microwave circuitry. Designed to be intuitive and fully integrated, SPsim employs a slick user interface which has no legacy code and operates using standard windows controls and keystrokes allowing circuits and simulations to be entered and set up in seconds.

SPsim is one of the most powerful and versatile suits available
