Subject: [Kicad-developers] Integrated Simulator
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:38.0) Gecko/20100101
As some of you have noticed, we've been working on a "secret" feature
during the hackathon at CERN. The feature we're talking about is an
integrated circuit simulator. Currently it features:
- Seamless integration into schematic editor,
- AC/Transient/DC sweep simulations,
- Voltage probing from the schematics,
- Live tuning of component values.
A video demonstrating the capabilities of the new simulator is available
on Tom's YouTube channel .
The code is currently available in the ngspice branch on Tom's GitHub
 for review & testing. It's a big feature, so we didn't want to push
it immediately to the product branch. We'll greatly appreciate your
The simulator uses ngspice  as the Spice kernel. We'd like to thank
ngspice developers for providing a DLL interface which made seamless
integration of ngspice into Kicad possible.
In order to get started:
- install ngspice shared library (is not provided by many Linux distros,
Arch Linux is a known exception, so you might have to compile it from
the sources with --with-ngshared --enable-xspice options). Windows
DLLs, msys2 PKGBUILD & binary packages (to be included soon in
the official msys2 repo, currently merged to
https://github.com/Alexpux/MINGW-packages/) & Linux script to build the
library are available at .
- compile eeschema with -DKICAD_SPICE=ON option,
- have a look at some examples in demos/simulation directory.
