Micro-Cap 11 is an integrated schematic editor and mixed analog/digital simulator that provides an interactive sketch and simulate environment for electronics engineers. Since its original release in 1982, Micro-Cap has been steadily expanded and improved. Micro-Cap 11, the tenth generation, blends a modern, intuitive interface with robust numerical algorithms to produce unparalleled levels of simulation power and ease of use. Nothing else comes close.
Algorithmic improvements, optimized code, and an integrated, seamless, analog/digital simulation interface contribute to the stunning speed of Micro-Cap 10.
Numerous features contribute to Micro-Cap 10’s power. Among them are:
- Integrated schematic editor and simulator.
- Dynamic analysis updates waveforms and curves as you edit
- Native digital simulator
- Periodic Steady State analysis
- Integral circuit optimizer with multiple optimization methods.
- Integrated active and passive filter design function
- Device library with over 24,000 parts.
- Analog and digital behavioral modeling
- Schematic waveform probing.
- On-schematic voltage/state, current, power, and condition display
- During the run plotting
- Smith charts / Polar plots.
- Multidimensional parameter stepping.

Easy to use
The graphical, user-friendly interface is simple to learn and use. Familiar SPICE models, plus extensions, are easy to apply. Over 500 warnings and messages help you through problems, when the error occurs, not later in a text file. Micro-Cap 10 plots waveforms during the run, not after the run, when it is too late to change critical values.
You can easily spend twice the cost of Micro-Cap 10 for other simulators without matching its power, speed, and ease of use.
