Engineering & Scientific Software - System Simulators
Manufacturers & Services

System simulators listed here apply primarily to those used for analog, RF, and microwave circuits. Designing high frequency systems for first-pass success requires a very high level of sophistication by the software. It must contain system models that accurately compute values that take into account component and subsystem level parameters like noise figure, intercept points, over-the-air links, gain, intermodulation products, etc. Generally, price correlates directly to the capability of the software.

My policy is to only list companies that actually manufacture product or offer services related to the page title subject. Product distributors and sales representatives are not listed (they have their own page). This helps guarantee that each listing offers a unique product or service. NOTICE: I am no longer adding hyperlinks due to so many companies asking to be removed because of some issue with Google Statistics. Your best bet is to use a search engine to find company websites directly. If you are interested in advertising, please visit my Advertising information page.
