the platform developed at INRIA Grenoble Rhône-Alpes (France) dealing with nonsmooth dynamical systems with dedicated time integrators and algorithms to solve sets of equations and inequalities (for instance LCP: linear complementarity problems).
an open-source version of the original SPICE3F5 software developed by Berkeley university. Even if this version may differ from existing commercial ones, it shares with them a common set of models and the solving algorithms belong also to the same class that deals with regular functions.
a commercial version of spice developed by Dolphin Integration (see http://www.dolphin.fr).
a commercial version of spice with Newton-Raphson and OSR (one step relaxation) algorithms developed by Mentor Graphics (http://www.mentor.com).
a simulink/matlab toolbox dedicated to the simulation of power electronics circuits (see http://www.plexim.com). The models and algorithms come from the hybrid approach. In our work the freely available demonstration version of plecs has been used.
