RF.Spice A/D is a powerful visual simulation environment for analysis and design of analog, digital, RF and mixed-signal circuits and systems. It is the most affordable RF circuit simulation tool in the market. RF.Spice A/D is the outcome of evolution of EMAG's older EDA product B2.Spice A/D with major enhancements and addition of an extensive library of RF devices, S-parameter-based multiport networks and a large variety of generic and physical transmission line types. RF.Spice A/D also features a large collection of functional and behavioral macormodels for waveform generation, analog and digital signal processing, spectral processing and various modulation types. You can use these so-called black-box virtual blocks to perform effective system-level simulations without having to deal with the details of individual subsystems.
Due to popular demand, EMAG Technologies Inc. continues to market and distribute B2.Spice A/D as the "Lite Edition" of RF.Spice A/D.
Using RF.Spice A/D you can:
- Analyze passive and active analog circuits involving RLC elements, diodes, transistors, operational amplifiers, integrated circuits, power devices, transformers, etc. either in real time or in frequency domain.
- Analyze digital circuits made of logic gates, flip flops, complex digital devices, etc. and probe them using live timing diagrams.
- Simulate RF circuits consisting of transmission line components, S-parameter-based multiport devices, distributed passive circuits, etc. and perform a network analysis on the Smith chart.
- Combine analog, digital and RF devices in mixed-sginal circuits and perform mixed-mode simulations using A/D and D/A bridges.
- Build complex systems using a large collection of black-box virtual blocks and perform system-level simulations.
- Develop behavioral macromodels of devices, circuits and subsystems, create your own new symbols for them and turn them into new custom parts or blocks and add them to your parts database or share them with others.
A Complete Circuit Simulation Environment
RF.Spice A/D is made up of a number of integrated utilities that make circuit simulation a simple and easy task:
- An intuitive mouse-based, point-and-click schematic editor
- An expandable parts database with more than 25,000 preloaded analog, RF and digital devices
- A powerful device manager with an integrated symbol editor that allows you to import external text-based model files or build Netlist-based parameterized subcircuit models from scratch
- An expanded SPICE simulation engine comprising SPICE 3F5 and XSPICE solvers, and event-driven digital simulation and RF network analysis capabilities
- Extensive graphing utilities including live simulation data update on virtual instruments, interactively cross probing and live digital timing diagrams
Can I Use RF.Spice A/D and EM.Cube Together?
Absolutely. EM.Cube has been cross-linked with RF.Spice A/D:
- Three of EM.Cube Modules, EM.Tempo, EM.Picasso and EM.Libera, generate S-parameter data files that are fully compatible with RF.Spice A/D. You can build new RF devices using these text files and add them to your parts database with generic symbols or your own custom symbols.
- RF.Spice A/D offers a large number of transmission line calculators and designers that can be directly accessed from EM.Cube.
- EM.Cube and RF.Spice A/D share the same data visualization and graphing tools.
Building on a Two-Decade-Old Legacy
RF.Spice A/D continues to provide the same convenience and versatility of B2.Spice A/D, which has been used by thousands of users since late 90's. Join the large community of B2.Spice A/D users around the globe today and enjoy the most intuitive circuit simulation and design tools at a fraction of the cost you would typically expect for this variety of features and capabilities!
Some of the B2.Spice A/D users include companies like Motorola, 3M, Lucent Technologies, National Semiconductor Corp., Lockheed Martin, Bosch, Unisys, Honeywell, Whirlpool, etc., academic institutions like Stanford University, Carnegie Mellon University, University of California (Berkeley, San Diego, Davis), Duke University, Cornell University, Brown University, University of Texas, Austin, Texas A & M University, University of Illinois, Ohio State University, etc., government agencies and federal laboratories like NASA, JPL, Naval Research Lab, Los Alamos National Lab, Lawrence Livermore National Lab, Sandia National Lab, Fermi National Accelerator Lab, etc.
