BeSpice Wave is a perfect waveform viewer for Xyce as it supports most of it’s waveform formats.
Xyce is an open source, SPICE-compatible analog circuit simulator. It has been developed by Sandia National Laboratories. It supports large-scale parallel computing platforms. As a consequence Xyce is capable of solving extremely large circuits.
Xyce can generate output files in multiple formats. BeSpice Wave reads the default file format (*.prn), CSV files (*.csv) and CSD files (*.csd). Unfortunately these files are text based. They are human-readable but reading them by software is relatively slow.
Therefore BeSpice Wave is a lot faster when reading binary raw files (*.raw). These files are generated when the command-line option -r <file_name> is added. BeSpice Wave accesses these files like a database. That means the curve list is read very quickly and the corresponding data is parsed only when it is required. All data is re-read from file when the file changes in an ongoing simulation.
The evaluation version from our downloads page reads among others *.prn, *.csv and *.raw files.
