    Hello,
    Can anyone suggest me what is the best or good software to simulate circuits in electronics.
    I knew Proteus and ORCAD but I think they aren't the best to simulate circuit.
    I have just heard about LTSpice or PSICE but I have never used that.Could anyone who are experrienced and learned person give me some advice?
    Can I use LTSpice or PSICE without Proteus?
    I need a good software that I can see all signal shape in detail because I don't have many opportunites to check it in reality.
    Thanks!

    LTspice works for me. It only has Linear Technology parts in it, plus a handful of generic parts. So if you need to simulate a circuit containing multiple parts from multiple manufacturers, it may not be great. I know there is a way to import other parts into the program but I've never had any luck finding the files for the parts I need, and creating the parts seemed to be something that you would need to be a guru to do.

    Don't listen to just me though. There are probably others out there who do not have the same problems that I have. Probably because they are smarter than me.

    AS for LTspice
    Here you can find all the additional models
    http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/LTspice/

    http://valvolodin.narod.ru/soft/extra.rar
    http://forest22.homeip.net/Electronics/index.html

    Unpack the archive "extra.rar", using the archive RAR
    Copy "extra1.rar" which is installed in the directories are LTspiceIV. Typically, this directory is "C: \ Program Files \ LTC"
    Unzip "extra1.rar" which is installed in the directories are LTspiceIV
    Finish

    And also ORCAD is the same as PSpice.

    anhnha try download Yenka

    Thank you very much!
    That software is great!
    I have never seen the best software like Yenka.
    This software will be very useful for me because I don't have oppturnity to do it.
