Spectrum Software
Industrial Strength Simulation




Spectrum Software has released Micro-Cap 11, the eleventh generation of our SPICE circuit simulator.

For users of previous Micro-Cap versions, check out the new features available in the latest version. For those of you who are new to Micro-Cap, take our features tour to see what Micro-Cap has to offer.




Easily Overlooked Features - Winter 2014


This section is designed to highlight one or two features per issue that may be overlooked because they are not made visually obvious with a toolbar button.

If you haven't already used the Micro-Cap 11 Calculator you'll be surprised at some of the new capabilities. In addition to doing complex math and derivatives, it can now plot 2D and 3D expressions. Here is one example, a three-dimensional plot of the SINC function.


3D Sinc Function

Enter an expression using only X and it will draw a 2-dimensional plot. Enter an expression using X and Y and it will draw a 3-dimensional plot. You can let it auto scale or you can control the scales manually. You can rotate the 3D plot by clicking the right mouse button and dragging the mouse.

Here is a 2-dimensional plot of SIN(X)*EXP(PI*X)/X

2D Plot of SIN(X)*EXP(PI*X)/X

Here is another 3D plot illustrating the Z-Axis clipping.
