LTSpice

Started by Cursitor Doom December 16, 2018
When I last did a fresh install of LTS in July of 2009, the executable I 
downloaded from Linear weighed in at 8.8Mb. Earlier today I downloaded 
the latest exe from what is now Analog.com (guess they took over Linear) 
and it's almost 42Mb. That's quite a tidy increase! Anyone know what 
reason(s) is/are behind this?

Lots more parts in the libraries, for one. XVIIx64.exe is just 16M. The examples and library are a lot bigger. -- John Larkin Highland Technology, Inc lunatic fringe electronics

That was always my main issue with LT in the past: the very small model library. -- This message may be freely reproduced without limit or charge only via the Usenet protocol.

With a bit effort and help from Yahoo LTspice group I got every model I wanted.

The ADI parts are a welcome addition, if maybe a bit rushed. Everybody should supply LT Spice models and example circuits for their parts. I have never got Webench or Tina to work. -- John Larkin Highland Technology, Inc lunatic fringe electronics

You can also take others' spice models and/or make all sorts of your own libraries of parts.

I've also got all the spice models for LT that Jim (god bless him) sent me before he died. If anyone wants 'em, let me know. -- This message may be freely reproduced without limit or charge only via the Usenet protocol.
