UBiSPICE: Circuit Simulator For The IPhone, IPod Touch, And IPad

SPICE (Simulation Program with Integrated Circuit Emphasis) is the crux of all electronic circuit simulation software in use today. It comes in various flavors, such as ORCAD PSPICE, Multisim, TSPICE, HSPICE, SPICE3, WINSPICE, or AIMSPICE, among others. Currently, SPICE is available for students at UB on the UNIX/LINUX computers, and on a PC. Our goal is to port SPICE to the Apple iPhone/iPod touch/iPad platforms. This will bring the power of circuit simulation into the palm of our hand. The first step will be to get the core text-based version of spice running on these platforms. When this is stable, we will work to make the interface to UBiSPICE completely graphical.
