|SPICE does not need any
introduction in the Electronic Design
Automation industry. In over 30 years of its life, SPICE
has become the
de-facto standard for circuit simulation.
ngspice is a mixed-level/mixed-signal circuit simulator. Its code is based on three open source software packages: Spice3f5, Cider1b1 and Xspice. Ngspice is part of gEDA project, a full GPL'd suite of Electronic Design Automation tools.
Good news -- ng-spice is now available in the Network.com Application Catalog. The design automation engineers can run circuit simulation simultaneously on multiple CPUs in the Sun Grid Compute Utility environment, and the simulation gets done much faster. Check out this page on how to run ngspice in Network.com.
