Analog Workbench


The first CAE tool set for analog system designers. Called the Analog Workbench, the system was almost an anomaly in a universe of CAE equipment and software geared for digital logic designers. Instead of concentrating on logic gates, the system simulated analog IC and component performance with voltages, currents, and waveforms.
ADT also had a tool kit geared for power-supply design based on Spice-3.
