LTSpice

Listed without any order

Spice models by Bob Cordell

Spice models from Bob Cordell are well respected in the audio community. I use them almost exclusively for simulating my designs.

FFT using LTSpice

This small wiki describes the best setup to simulate FFT with LTSpice

LTSpice convergence issues

This guide has helped me a lot identifying and solving any convergence issues without resorting to hacks.

Undocumented LTSpice

Some of this may be very helpful.

Calculators

Sometimes online calculators may be useful for a quick estimation. Here are some calculators I use often. Listed without any order.

R-L-C low pass filter calculator

This calculator from Okawa Electric Design is excellent for checking whether a L-C low pass filter design is good or not. They offer further calculators I haven'tried yet.

Toroid Inductor Calculator

This is the most useful calculator for toriod inductors I have seen so far.

Decibel calculator

Sengspiel Audio offers a useful calculator for Decibel values.

Resistor codes calculator

Easily calculate the resistor value of any color or digit coded resistor. This is especially useful in case the resistance cannot be measured.

Geometric calculators

The best geometric calculators I found on the web including geometric forms I have never heard of before.

Physics and economy

This collection of calculators by AJ Design is mostly for physics and economy.
