Pspice or other circuit simulators for MAC

Does anyone know of any circuit simulators for macs? I found Macspice, and it requires hand drawing the schematic and creating and labeling a text file netlist - I would like to find one that allows me to draw the circuit just like the PC versions of Pspice. Are there any?

Thanks!

Re: 120 VAC to 5 VDC

Thanks! I like the last one on your list - unfortunately Mouser has a 20 week lead time on all three of those! I get the idea - I bet I can find a supplier that has them in stock.

120 VAC to 5 VDC

I am interested in the PIC microcontrollers, and have built several circuits that use batteries to power the microcontroller. Does anyone have a good method for stepping down the 120AC from the wall down to 5VDC? I would like a way to do this without using a "wall wart" tranformer.
