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 category, for our products.

The models provided below are for general usage in any PSPICE-compatible simulator.  Please note that these same models are included in the EE-Sim OASIS model library but are specially keyed to work in EE-Sim OASIS. Do not try to use the models found here in the EE-Sim OASIS tool.

If you don't find the SPICE model you need or have problems with any of our SPICE models, please contact us.

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.

  • SIMetrix Mixed-mode simulator with superior convergence, plus schematic editor and waveform viewer (free EE-Sim version available)
  • IsSpice4 SPICE simulator included in Intusoft's ICAP/4 analog and mixed signal circuit simulation package
  • Multisim National Instrument's simulation environment, available in Professional and Student editions
  • Ngspice Free, open source mixed-mode, mixed-level simulator
  • PSpice® Popular OrCAD® simulator (now owned by Cadence®) with a free, limited capabilities demo version
  • TINA® Tool suite from DesignSoft that includes a SPICE simulator and can be run in the "cloud"
  • TopSpice Low-cost tool that includes schematic capture, waveform analysis, and PSpice and HSPICE® compatibility
