SPICE Models

SPICE simulation tools allow design engineers to validate circuits prior to building the circuits and to quickly test a circuit's likely behavior under a variety of conditions that can easily be modified. Maxim provides hundreds of SPICE models, grouped below by product line, for our products.

SPICE Simulators

A broad array of SPICE simulators are available on the market. We understand that many engineers have strong preferences about which simulator they use. Maxim wants you to use the simulator of your choice. However, in case you do not have a favorite SPICE simulator, we have provided links to some popular ones.
