I've recently realized that I can't do everything easily in ngspice, mainly because analysis has to be performed through the interpreter. I'm considering switching to a new SPICE simulator.
I'd like a list the advantages and disadvantages of the following SPICE simulators as well as experiences with the various simulators:
HSPICE LTspice ngspice PSpice
I'm well aware HSPICE is an expensive proprietary simulator, but I am able to get access to it, problem is I'd have to access it on a sever via SSH.
LTspice is already free, but not installed on my Windows 7 machine.
Already using ngspice in Fedora Linux.
PSpice available to me on my university's computers. I refuse to install it on my own computer, because it messes with the registry a bit too much.
