SPICE OPUS analog circuit simulator

SPICE OPUS is based on the Berkeley SPICE3f4 analog circuit simulator. The original simulator was cleaned up, many device models were added, the convergence algorithms were improved, a terminal window and plotting utilities were reimplemented using Qt. SPICE OPUS was developed with circuit optimization in mind. The optimization algorithms were implemented into teh simulator which makes them particularly fast as no time is wasted with restarting the simulator for every candidate circuit. A byproduct of this developement was a cleaned-up and memory-leak free NUTMEG scripting language which is built into SPICE OPUS.

Where can I download it?
You can find more about SPICE OPUS (and also download it) at www.spiceopus.si. SPICE OPUS is avaliable for both Linux and Windows.

The use of SPICE OPUS and the algorithms behind it are described in a book published by Birkhauser/Springer:
