I want to simulate my circuit which consists of hall sensor and its signal conditioning. Which simulation software should i use?

LTspice or Pspice or multisim?

Thanq

for me I consider HSPICE , PSPICE and Eldo are the best SPICE tools.
I suggest you to use Cadence OrCad from Cadence which is PSPICE based simulator

It doesn`t matter at all. All software packages can do - provided they have a Hall sensor model on-board (I don`t know if there is any).
Or do you intend to built a model by yourself?

yes i am building circuit with hall sensor which gives out the anologue signal and signal conditioning for it..

what do u mean by hall sensor on-board? pls can tell that, so it might be useful for me..

If you intend to simulate a circuit with a Hall sensor you need a model of this device, which can be read by the simulator.
For example - if there is a resistor the simulation program knows that this part does nothing else than to connect current and voltage according to ohms law.
Thus, you must tell the program - with the help of a suitable model - how the Hall sensor works (voltage-current relationships, frequency dependence,...).
When you know how the describing formulas look like you can use existing models (resistors, capacitors, controlled sources) to describe the behaviour of the sensor.

See for example here for a Hall sensor model:

Hi Thanq,

from

www.powersimtech.com

you can download for free a simulation program called "PSIM" (demo version) that contains also a macro model for a HALL sensor.
Perhaps this helps solving your task
