Right now our institute is using something called OrCAD/Capture CIS or something. I don't know, my point is that it is horrible and can hardly simulate anything more than an S-R flip-flop. I don't know what the reason is but it seems like a horrible software for designing circuits as it seems to have many software clashes within itself. Also seems to be really old which is why it probably has so many problems.

Anyhow, suggest to me a good AND free electronic design/simulation software. The best that comes to your mind.

All I can think of is "SPICE" it was some kind of program, go look it up.

I checked out SPICE. It's analog only. If you could suggest one that does both analog and digital circuits/signals, I'd really appreciate it. And windows versions, please.

The only one I've ever used was under Ubuntu. Your best bet it to probably partition off part of your drive and run a Ubuntu install. Seems to have much more options.

Depending on what you're doing you could try Logisim. Logisim

Not sure if it has all the features you're after though.
