LTSpice Intro


There are several videos and articles online about how to use LTSpice to simulate circuits.

Sometimes, it can be overwhelming to find relevant videos that explain the simulation that you need to validate your work or to help with your study. Moreover, there is more than one way to get to a result, and it is easy to get confused which method to follow.

This collection of articles aims to help students to connect some of those resources with contents and exercises covered in circuits and electronics classes. Hopefully, it also prepares students to tackle more complex circuits that they will be using during their professional life.

LTSpice has limitations as any other circuit simulator software. Recognizing its strengths and weaknesses is an important skill to develop over time so you can select the right circuit simulator for your needs. Throughout the articles, particular weaknesses and strengths for the topic in question will be highlighted.

The articles are separated through topics relevant for circuits and electronics contents. They contain one or several circuit examples with the respective LTSpice explanation. Hopefully, by the end of each article, the student is able to use the concepts on different exercises of the same nature.

At the end of each article, there is a reference section that includes articles or videos used as a reference or as an extended recommended reading.

If you have additional questions or would like to see an article covering a specific topic from circuits and electronics classes, let me know.
