    There have been developments by several EDA vendors that have greatly increased speed to the Fast-Spice level, some, like BDA, have done that with Analog FastSPICE without loss of accuracy compared to Spectre or HSPICE. Full Disclosure - I worked at BDA as an apps guy a few years back. Cadence was doing pretty well with their APS engine as well.

    Perhaps these might be of interest for addition to the table & list:
    Simulator: Saber, the first and in some sense still the best table-based circuit simulator, which I have used extensively for analog chip design and big co-sim jobs in Hspice model environment, via the 'new Spice to Saber' translater NSpiToS.
    Analysis: time domain noise, pole-zero, worst case, successive injection, symbolic; Virtuoso Analog Design Environment lists 26 analysis types.
    Eldo analysis types, is a listing wanted (table has blank areas)? Eldo does most everything Hspice does, but better, in my considered judgement, including analysis types, I used it full time for 4 years next to Hspice. Far fewer bugs.

    There are several of the lower cost spice simulators missing and one with incorrect info.

    First of all Tina is made and sold by Designsoft: DesignSoft main page. Pretty capable mixed-signal product with VHDL support. Latest version is multithreaded to take full advantage of multiple core processors. Probably the easiest to use and get up to speed on.
