SwitcherCADTM III Spice
Fully functional Free Spice software (unlimited circuit size) with schematic capture and waveform viewer available for download from Linear Technology Corporation. Third party device models can easily be added to the library.

If you encounter problems installing or operating SwitcherCADTM III Spice for the purpose of selecting and evaluating Linear Technology products, you may obtain technical assistance by calling their Applications Department at (408) 432-1900, between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm Pacific time, Monday through Friday.

Assistance with development of third party device models (or using SwitcherCADTM III Spice to analyze circuits not evaluating Linear Technology products) is available from Creative Power Resources, Inc. on a time and materials consulting agreement basis at 215-362-0258 between 8:00 AM and 5:00 PM Eastern time, Monday through Friday.
