LTSpice is pretty good for analog simulation, but CircuitLogix
provides both analog and digital simulation.
First of all LTspice has also built-in mixed mode capability.
I tried now the CircuitLogix simulator. I have to admit that this
animation capability of CircuitLogix is a good feature especially
for education. www.CircuitLogix.com
On the other hand I couldn't run any of the benchmark SPICE-circuits
with the CircuitLogix program. It always gives the error message:
Invalid CIRCUIT path/file name.
I tried some examples, e.g. File->Open ".cir" sqrt.cir
(I remaned the SPICE netlist sqrt.sp to sqrt.cir)
Maybe you can tell me what I should change to run this example
with the CircuitLogix simulator.
Overall LTspice is a much more compatible SPICE simulator.
Many of the commercial SPICE simulators don't have this compatilibity.
You can take every SPICE book and immediately run the examples
with LTspice on a netlist level.
I also like the more powerful waveform editor in LTspice.
It can easily work with data files having 1Giga-Byte.
I reommend LTSpice for people who want SPICE.
Not to forgot the many SMPS-models provided with LTspice.
CircuitLogix will have it's place in education because of it's animation
capability. I appreciate that it's free for students and not limited
as most other student versions of commercial SPICE-simulators.
Isn't it the refreshed CircuitMaker program?
