Of course, then we would never pay for the good stuff that works and has lots of features we can never understand because we can't attend the suppliers training program. Mentor does have online training and I have watched the videos over and over. They are still lacking.

Just taking it one category at a time. Can you imagine how huge the list would be if it were free software for all aspects of electronic design?

But is it free? This article is specifically about free software.

Are these all free? Are they limited versions?

I'm not sure. I've just been using the student version, and it doesn't look like it's missing any features. I guess you'll have to send them an email to figure out the price.

It looks pretty cool but how much does it actually cost? Not the student version.

CoolSpice is a relatively new software package, but I've tried it out and it's great.

Here's a link to the download page: http://coolcadelectronics.com/coolspice/

PowerESim is a new CAD tool on the Internet for Switching Power Supplies http://www.poweresim.com/ . I heard about it quite recently but it seems to be an interesting tool. Another interesting EE FEA tool is Quickfield from http://www.ocsimize.com/ because it interfaces with LTSpice so it is quite handy.... Best regards, Jgo
