Software Description: NL5 Circuit Simulator v2.2.2 + Crack
NL5 Circuit Simulator is an analog electroniccircuit simulator working with ideal and piecewise-linearcomponents. The first version of NL simulator for personalcomputers was developed in the early ‘90s as a tool for switchingpower supplies design. Since then NL has evolved into the MicrosoftWindows based tool, which is being used extensively by world-classengineers in different fields of electronics for almost 15 years.The first publicly available version, NL5 Circuit Simulator, wasreleased in 2009.
How does NL5 Circuit Simulator work
While conventional SPICE-based simulators are trying to performaccurate simulation using “real” models of non-linear componentswith dozens of parameters, NL5 Circuit Simulator is using anopposite approach. Instead of complex models, it offers very simple”ideal” components.
Why “ideal” components
There are many advantages of using “ideal” components in circuitsimulation.
If “real” parts are used, each one adds a lot of “variables” in thesystem equations: parasitic capacitance and inductance, leakage,offsets, on/off resistance, limited gain and bandwidth, etc. All ofthem are considered in the simulation process, which makes itextremely complex, slow, and very often non-reliable.
NL5 Circuit Simulator vs. SPICE back to top
One might think that dealing with such simple components must be avery simple task, so why not use “ideal” components in SPICE?Unfortunately, that’s not possible.
SPICE algorithm has been initially designed to perform accuratesimulation of “real” integrated circuits, and it does that verywell. However, “ideal” components may cause quite specificoperating conditions, which almost never exist in “real” life:floating nodes, voltage loops, current cut-sets, to name a few. Ithappened that a standard SPICE algorithm has inherent limitations,which prevent it from dealing with such conditions.
Who can use NL5 Circuit Simulator
NL5 Circuit Simulator perfectly fits the needs of all users,regardless of their experience, interests, and expectations.
NL5 Circuit Simulator is ideal for novices and students studyingelectronics. The learning curve is negligibly short: basicknowledge of the Windows® operating system is all that’s needed tostart working with NL5 Circuit Simulator. A friendly and intuitiveinterface allows fast modifying of the schematic, even “on-the-fly”editing while the simulation is running, thus giving instantanswers to “what if …?” questions.
