Qucs for Windows Publisher's description
from Michael Margraf
Qucs is an integrated circuit simulator which means
Qucs is an integrated circuit simulator which means you are able to setup a circuit with a graphical user interface (GUI) and simulate the large-signal, small-signal and noise behaviour of the circuit. After that simulation has finished you can view the simulation results on a presentation page or window.
Qucs, briefly for Quite Universal Circuit Simulator, is a circuit simulator with graphical user interface (GUI). The GUI is based on QtВ® by TrolltechВ®. The software aims to support all kinds of circuit simulation types, e.g. DC, AC, S-parameter, Harmonic Balance analysis, noise analysis, etc.
Qucsator, the simulation backend, is a command line circuit simulator. It takes a network list in a certain format as input and outputs a Qucs dataset. It has been programmed for usage in the Qucs project but may also be used by other applications.
So far we were working on the GUI and on some basic simulation features. In fact there is now a kind of useful user interface for setting up schematics and presenting simulation results in various types of diagrams. DC, AC, S-parameter, noise and transient analysis is possible, mathematical equations and use of a subcircuit hierarchy are available. Anyway, a lot of work has to be done and thus we are looking for people who want to support the project.
What's New in This Release:В· The new release comes with an interactive GNU/Octave interface. Support for C++ code export of symbol drawings associated with Verilog-A files, and direct association of symbol drawings to Verilog-HDL, Verilog-A and VHDL code has been implemented. In Verilog-HDL and VHDL subcircuits equations can be used. Syntax highlighting for Octave, Verilog-HDL and Verilog-A syntax in text documents has been added. Pre-compiled VHDL modules and libraries made from user written VHDL code is supported now. There are several new components, such as transistor models NIGBT, HICUM L2 v2.24, HICUM L0 v1.2g and HICUM L0 v1.3, tunnel diode, ideal coupled transmission line and an ideal hybrid. The package comes with a new translation into Kazakh. The equation solver now has a EMI receiver functionality implemented. The qucsconv command line data converter supports now Matlab v4 as an export file format.
