To quickly and accurately simulate your circuit designs, Analog Devices offers the EE-Sim OASIS simulation tool. It includes both the SIMPLIS simulation engine, which is the industry’s leading simulator for switched-mode power ICs, and the SIMetrix SPICE simulation engine, known for its robust and speedy convergence.
- Run simulations off-line (without an internet connection)
- Add* or move components using the full featured schematic editor
- Start with ready-to-go schematics, or create a custom design using the online EE-Sim design tool
To ‘Check for Updates’, please simply go to the OASIS Simulator Help menu to access the newest version.
*This free tool restricts the circuit size that may be simulated, but the limits are generous enough to allow for real work.
What is SIMPLIS?
SIMPLIS (SIMulation of Piecewise LInear Systems) is a circuit simulator specifically designed to handle the simulation challenges of switching power systems. Like SPICE, SIMPLIS works at the component level but typically can perform a transient analysis of a switching circuit 10 to 50 times faster. For switching power systems, the piecewise linear (PWL) modeling and simulation techniques employed by SIMPLIS result in qualitatively superior convergence behavior compared to SPICE.
What is SIMetrix?
SIMetrix is a general analog and mixed-signal simulator. It includes an enhanced SPICE simulator, a schematic editor, and a waveform viewer in a unified environment. It is easy to use, offers good accuracy and performance as well as rapid convergence for a broad range of analog and mixed-signal design applications.

EE-Sim Solution Finder
The EE-Sim Solution Finder is a cutting edge part selection tool that enables you to find the right switching power supply faster. Why is the solution finder better than a parametric search? The solution finder validates your design requirements to ensure the suitability of each recommended part. It also compares the efficiency, size, and cost of each recommended solution—taking into account the complete solution BOM, not just the IC.

SIMPLIS vs. SPICE: Which Is Better for Switching Power Conversion Simulation?
SIMPLIS was initially developed because SPICE did not simulate switching converters effectively.
