Why |Zero|?
===========
Given that tools such as `LTspice <http://www.analog.com/en/design-center/design-tools-and-calculators/ltspice-simulator.html>`_
and `Qucs <http://qucs.sourceforge.net/>`_ exist, why use this tool?

The answer is: `it depends`. For circuits where dc analysis is needed, or where you must
model non-linear or time-variant effects, then the above tools are very useful; however,

What |Zero| does
================
|Zero| can perform small signal analyses on circuits containing linear components. It is
inherently AC, and as such can compute :ref:`frequency responses between nodes or components <analyses/ac/signal:Small AC signal analysis>`
and :ref:`noise spectral densities at nodes <analyses/ac/noise:Small AC noise analysis>`. Inputs and
outputs can be specified in terms of voltage or current.

LISO
====
|Zero| is loosely based on `LISO <https://wiki.projekt.uni-hannover.de/aei-geo-q/start/software/liso>`_
by Gerhard Heinzel. It (mostly) understands LISO circuit mode input files, meaning that it
can be used in place of LISO to simulate circuit signals. It also understands LISO output
files, allowing results previously computed with LISO to be plotted, and for LISO results
to be directly compared to those of this program.
