I think all of the various circuit simulators with GUI's are pretty good
at what they do. The really expensive ones are very good and the cheaper
ones are just good. The problem is that simulators simulate, they don't
design. That's for the port between the keyboard and the chair. I wish
there were a window that the designer could put in his desired results and
when that didn't happen then the application could at least give some
guidance to the designer other than a "Jane, you ignorant slut" error
message. To most designers, unless they're nuts and bolters, don't know
about timesteps, convergence/divergence, solution methods, etc., etc. The
only recourse is to come to this and other forums and put up a question.
I would also recommend that the person with the problem offer up the
netlist he is trying to solve and the stimulation, etc associated with the
circuit. Schematics would also be useful to a prospective helper.
Hey guys! Simulation is fun, but it can be a real pain, especially at 2.4GHz.
