LTspice Alternatives for Linux

LTspice is not available for Linux but there are plenty of alternatives that runs on Linux with similar functionality. The best Linux alternative is QUCS, which is both free and Open Source. If that doesn't suit you, our users have ranked more than 25 alternatives to LTspice and 11 are available for Linux so hopefully you can find a suitable replacement. Other interesting Linux alternatives to LTspice are Circuit JS, OpenModelica, Xcos and Ktechlab.

LTspice alternatives are mainly Circuit Simulators but may also be Electronic Design Automation Tools or CAD Software. Filter by these if you want a narrower list of alternatives or looking for a specific functionality of LTspice.

    Circuit JS vs LTspice opinions
    Some users think Circuit JS is a great alternative to LTspice, some don't.

    CircuitJS does not run Spice (the core circuit simulator used by LTSpice, PSpice, and others). CircuitJS does not have built-in models for manufactured components nor does it allow you to define your own subcircuits. It was never built for commercial circuit design (while LTSpice was).
