Clove is a simple ac circuit
simulator. It takes as input a circuit description in the form of
a nodelist (*.cir) file, in a format very similar to that used by SPICE.
To run Clove you will need to install the Java
Runtime Environment (JRE), version 1.5 or higher. If you are
in developing Java code, select the "JRE" for your computer and
system. (The "SDK" is the system development kit, which is what
need if you want to write programs in Java.) This will install
Java Web Start program, which will launch the Clove code.
To run Clove, click on the link below. Be aware,
however, that Java Web Start will give you a security warning that the
code is signed by "William R. Frensley," but that it cannot verify this
and it will recommend that you do not run this program. What this
means is that I have not paid a few hundred dollars per year for a
security certificate. Note that the code is being served from the
University of Texas at Dallas web site, and that I am a Professor at
and make your own judgement about the safety of this code.
For an example of the use of an S-parameter file, open the following
URL in Clove by copying the following text into the "Open URL" dialog
