MacSpice is an electronic circuit simulator. Circuit simulation is a way of building and testing virtual models of electronic devices. It is usually cheaper and quicker to simulate a design than to build a prototype. MacSpice uses a text-file 'netlist' description of the circuit as input. This is a list of components and the nodes they connect to. Users may prepare netlists with a text editor, or derive them from a circuit diagram using a third-party schematic-capture application. MacSpice then builds a numerical model of the circuit and analyses this.
A command interpreter (shell) is used to specify the types of
- Correct sign of power dissipated by PNP transistors
- User-defined function definitions can sometimes be deleted inappropriately when a new fucntion is defined
- Workaround for macOS 10.12 Sierra bug that caused a crash when invalid scale values were entered into a print dialog panel
- OS X 10.6 or later
