HSpice

The HSpice optimizing analog circuit simulator is a circuit analysis tool that is used to simulate electrical circuits in steady-state, transient, and frequency domains. HSpice has built in measurements capabilities that can be used to produce graphical curves. These graphs are very useful in engineering and project design management.
