LTspice Alternatives for Linux

LTspice is not available for Linux but there are some alternatives that runs on Linux with similar functionality. The most popular Linux alternative is Small Circuit Simulator iconCircuit Simulator, which is both free and Open Source. If that doesn't suit you, our users have ranked 31 alternatives to LTspice and ten of them are available for Linux so hopefully you can find a suitable replacement. Other interesting Linux alternatives to LTspice are Small QUCS iconQUCS (Free, Open Source), Small Xcos iconXcos (Free, Open Source), Small OpenModelica iconOpenModelica (Free, Open Source) and Small Ktechlab iconKtechlab (Free, Open Source).

LTspice IV is a high performance Spice III simulator, schematic capture and waveform viewer with enhancements and models for easing the simulation of switching regulators.

Alternatives to LTspice for Linux with any license

  • Circuit Simulator

    This is a javascript electronic circuit simulator. When the applet starts up you will see an animated schematic of a simple LRC circuit. The green color indicates positive voltage. The gray color indicates ground. A red color indicates negative voltage. The moving yellow dots indicate current.

  • QUCS

    Qucs is an integrated circuit simulator which means you are able to setup a circuit with a graphical user interface (GUI) and simulate the large-signal, small-signal and noise behaviour of the circuit. After that simulation has finished you can view the simulation results on a presentation page or window.

  • Ngspice

    Ngspice is a mixed-level/mixed-signal circuit simulator. Its code is based on three open source software packages: Spice3f5, Cider1b1 and Xspice. Ngspice is part of gEDA project, a full GPL'd suite of Electronic Design Automation tools. Spice3 does not need any introduction, is the most popular circuit simulator. In over 30 years of its life Spice3 has become a de-facto standard for simulating circuits.

  • Oregano

    oregano - An electrical engineering tool for GNOME oregano is an application for schematic capture and simulation of electronic circuits. The actual simulation is performed by Berkeley Spice, or GNUcap or the new generation ngspice which is required for simulation, but not necessary to run the application.

  • Qucs-S

    Qucs-S is a spin-off of the Qucs cross-platform circuit simulator. "S" letter indicates SPICE. The purpose of the Qucs-S subproject is to use free SPICE circuit simulation kernels with the Qucs GUI. It merges the power of SPICE and the simplicity of the Qucs GUI. Qucs intentionally uses its own SPICE incompatible simulation kernel Qucsator. It has advanced RF and AC domain simulation features, but the most of existing industrial SPICE models are incompatible with it.

  • Circuit Solver Web

    As I approached my senior year for my B.S. in Electrical Engineering, I wanted to create something that most people hadn't created before, a circuit simulator! It was about the experience, the learning, and the the journey itself. I put together this application to package my knowledge in Electrical Engineering to some day help another student have an easier time in their scholastic pursuits and in turn teach them about circuits.

  • Emulino

    Emulino is an emulator for the Arduino platform by Greg Hewgill, originally found on emulino: arduino cpu emulator. With it, you can build ("Verify") a .pde sketch in Arduino IDE which uses serial port for communication to say a .hex file, and then you can invoke the emulino executable with the .hex file as an argument, and get a local simulation of how an Arduino would behave; useful for debugging without wasting burn cycles on the Arduino's AVR chip.
