Simulator for TI 4000 series ICs

Simulator for TI 4000 series ICs

Simulator for TI 4000 series ICs

I'm a tinkerer and I'm building a few control systems using TI 4000 series ICs because I have thousands of them, ADCs, DAC, 555 timers, and clock crystals.
I'd say my designs are application specific analogs.
I'd like to be able to simulate my circuits before I spend all the time building them.
Is there a free or very low cost software solution that specifically has the components I mentioned?

I've read about several simulators but have not been able to find the 4000 series ICs yet.

RE: Simulator for TI 4000 series ICs

Considering 4000 series chips began coming out 50+ years ago and have been superseded in most cases with newer logic types, you're probably going to be hamstrung a bit from a sim model capability. You could try TI's free PSpice LTsim, but I don't think they supply models for those chips.

LTSpice is a decent freeware simulator, and a quick google of LTSpice and 4000 brings up some libraries people have made for it that include 4000 series components.

RE: Simulator for TI 4000 series ICs

So far I'm using Circuitverse.
I'm just doing logic to begin with. Then, I'll make models of each chip so I can map out how to map the real wiring. Then I can test the power on another simulator.

I also downloaded PSpice for TI and I'm working on learning how to use it.

I'll share some of my projects as they start to come off.
