HSPICERF on simulator support list (Q2 2003)

We evaluated this last year. a piece of junk! I would never install in in my computer even if it were free. Far behind from Cadence IC443 or Mentor Design Architecture.

Firs, and the most important thing is no legacy: you can't resuse old schematics created by other tools. Not very friendly to use, can't interface with other simulation except Avant!. lack a lot of bell and whistle ect...
Maybe we are just to familiar with other tools. It's not worth to change. It's says that if it isn't broken, don't fix it!

HSpiceRF or ADS?

I use ADS for RF design for years, I don't think HSpiceRF is realy need for us. since HSpice interface is realy poor.
