A brief history of analog simulators is given leading up to the development of the new types of digital simulator. Examples of the older analog simulators is followed by examples of their digital counterparts. Typical output waveforms from the new simulators are shown both in playback and interactive mode. Specific examples are given of the increase in testing efficiency using the new real time digital simulators with a batch testing feature.
