Electronic – Tools for analog signal design/modeling


What are some good tools which will simplify the process of designing and modeling analog signals? I am currently using Mathematica for modeling signal behavior, but that requires me to define a new model for every new piece of functionality (e.g. a low-pass filter). Are there any tools that could help me out?

SPICE (or any derivative of it) would be the best choice if you are doing circuit simulation as part of the process, also take a look at MATLAB with Simulink.

MATLAB might also have a few toolboxes that are helpful for your needs, e.g. Filter Design (but more aimed at digital filters) and the Signal Processing toolbox.
