Sometimes it is better to see one time than try to imagine things – especially in electronics. When trying to design something in electronics, probably it is a best way to take some sort of circuit simulator and make a simple model of it to see how it works before putting in to real worlds design. If you want to make quite complex circuit simulations, you probably should choose professional Spice based electronic circuit simulation tools. But what if you need a simple “pocket sized„ simulator that would remind you simple basics how circuits work, how current flows in one or another situation. For this you should try this Java based circuit simulator.
IT can be run directly on the web page or downloaded and started locally. It takes very little space, but has many useful features including:
- Lots of premade circuits that are ready to run;
- Customizable animated simulation where you can select current speed, simulation speed or other specific parameters;
- Scope views;
- Ability to build your own circuits.
Of course it can’t beat the real simulators, but can serve as quick checklist on how things work. This java based circuit simulator seems to be updated constantly with new features and units. Just give a try and see how well you know basic electronics.
