  Description     : Mixed-level/mixed-signal electronic circuit simulator
>From the FAQ:
Ngspice is a mixed-level/mixed-signal circuit simulator based on three
open source software packages: Spice3f5, Cider1b1 and Xspice:

- Spice3 is the most famous and used circuit simulator. It was
  developed University of California at Berkeley (UCB), by "a cast of
  thousand" (as they say).

- Cider is a mixed-level simulator that already includes Spice3f5 and
  adds a device simulator to it: DSIM. Cider couples the circuit level
  simulator to the device simulator to provide greater simulation
  accuracy (at the expense of greater simulation time). Critical
  devices can be described with technology parameters (numerical
  models) and non critical ones with the original spice's compact

- Xspice is an extension to Spice3 that provides code modeling support
  and simulation of digital components through an embedded event
  driven algorithm.
