Free evaluation versions of our software can be downloaded. These evaluation executables are only valid for 1 year for all main executables and 3 months for all widgets. However the download packages are regularly updated and can be actualized free of charge. Their functionality of our evaluation software is limited. You must agree to the license terms included to your software package before using and installing the software.
The evaluation version of BeSpice Wave contain binaries, documentation and examples. It is available as:
- Compressed folder for Windows. The compressed folder contains BeSpice Wave and the BeSpice Wave Widget (32 and 64 bit version). Several example show how the widget can be used in any Win32, Qt, Tk, wxWidgets or Python application.
- Installer for Windows. BeSpice Wave and the Windows Widget (32 and 64 bit version) will be installed.
- Installer for MacOs. It contains BeSpice Wave build using LGPL Qt libraries.
- Compressed archive for Linux. The archive contains the main BeSpice Wave application built using LGPL Qt libraries. This version extensions to read files in SEED, FST and LXT formats.
- Compressed folder for ARM v7 Linux.
- Tk Graph and Waveform Viewer for Linux. This software package contains an evaluation version of our Tcl/Tk implementation of BeSpice Wave. The package contains a 32 and 64 bit Tcl/Tk module. It can easily be integrated into every Tcl/Tk application from version 8.4. It can be used from a Tcl script or C/C++. This is illustrated by several examples. Instructions on how to use the software package can be found here.
Evaluation Software Limitations
The evaluation versions of BeSpice Wave have the following limitations:
- Only spice3 raw and CSV (comma separated values) files can be parsed. Spice3 files are generated by open source simulators such as ngspice. However commercial simulators also allow to generate output files in this format. Check your simulators user guide for the corresponding options.
- CSV files can also be separated by other characters such as semicolon, spaces or tab characters. They are used by many applications.
Multi dimensional CSV files can only be parsed by our commercial versions.
- Post processing is only available in our commercial versions.
- The browser of the evaluation version of our software is not configurable. It doesn’t allow to apply filters.
- Annotations are not available in the evaluation version.
