GARDENA, CA – Intusoft released its ICAP/4 8.x.11 Build 2817 SPICE-simulation tool suite for analog, mixed-signal and mixed-system design. According to Tim Ghazaleh, director of marketing for Intusoft, several product enhancements were installed across the SpiceNet design entry system, IsSpice4 simulation output file, automated electrical measurements readout and waveform viewing.
8.x.11 Build 2817 also reportedly has enhanced SpiceNet’s display of DC operating points, component properties, user-specified custom part bins and waveform graphs displayed on the schematic. Following a simulation run, the display of automatically charted electrical measurements has also been enhanced. Management functions for Monte Carlo statistical analysis are said to run much faster. With component sweeps, multiple components can be assigned the same sweep variable and swept as a group through a prescribed range of values. Since many designers are interested in key data collected from a SPICE simulation output file, ICAP/4 has added operability enhancements for the IsSpice4 simulator’s output file. Other features with Build 2817 include waveform management and importing of data in IntuScope more powerful.
