The SIMetrix Simulator - What is it?

The SIMetrix simulator core comprises a direct matrix analog simulator closely coupled with an event driven gate-level digital simulator. This combination is often described as mixed-mode or mixed-signal and has the ability to efficiently simulate both analog and digital circuits together.

The core algorithms employed by the SIMetrix analog simulator are based on the SPICE program developed by the CAD/IC group at the department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences, University of California at Berkeley. The digital event driven simulator is derived from XSPICE developed by the Computer Science and Information Technology Laboratory, Georgia Tech. Research Institute, Georgia Institute of Technology.
