I have used several of the tools mentioned in this thread and believe them
all to be useful in many different ways. However, they are just that,
tools. You still need to interpret the results and if they look
unreasonable, then find out what is wrong. It could very well be that a
simple change in the netlist parameters, the Spice solution technique, or
other such "switch" will yield good information/results. Does that mean
that you have to know how Spice calculates the results? Not necessarily.
I would just do what I could and if I'm at a loss, then ask someone else
for help. After all, what is the purpose of this forum and the tech
support provided the customer for the Spice simulators. Your greatest
tools besides experience, observation, and communication are patience and
perseverance. Both breadboarding and simulation have their uses, but it
is best to have both.
