Embedded Development using VisSim - Visual Solutions

VisSim is a software tool by which we can do mathematical modeling, simulation, and model-based embedded development with a friendly and easy visual language.

Embedded Development using VisSim - Visual Solutions

"VisSim is a block diagram language for creating complex nonlinear dynamic systems. To create a model, simply drag blocks in the workspace and connect them with wires. Then click the Go button to initiate your simulation. The response is instantaneous."

 "VisSim's tightly integrated development platform makes it easy to pass freely among the stages of model construction, simulation, optimization, and validation. This means you can create virtual prototypes on your desktop and make sure they're working properly before committing to the design."

VisSim - Digital Power Designer

VisSim - Digital Power Designer

VisSim/Digital Power Designer provides high level blocks for simulation and code generation of power supply and digital power components and controls. VisSim/Digital Power Designer blocks let you develop a working controller which can be directly downloaded to the MCU for digital power applications.

Dynamic Schematic Editor - Spectrum Software

A Schematic Editor with Active Simulator oriented towards RF and Communication Circuits. Good support for Power Electronic Devices and Circuits like IGBT and Mosfet.

"The multi-page hierarchical schematic editor makes it easy to sketch a circuit. Once a circuit is created, you can do a transient, AC, DC, transfer function, sensitivity, or distortion with a simple command."

Integrated schematic editor and simulator

Micro-Cap 10 is an integrated schematic editor and mixed analog/digital simulator that provides an interactive sketch and simulate environment for electronics engineers.

Animation lets objects change their display or respond to user clicks during a simulation. In this mode, a single analysis time step is taken and the schematic displays and animate devices are updated on the schematic. The animation components can also be used in a Dynamic DC analysis.

Schematic Editor is the front end for any PCB design application. Schematic Editor of EDWinXP allows to capture the circuit in the form of a schematic diagram. The created circuit is in the form of a logical diagram where components are placed using the Library Browser and Library Explorer.

Layout Editor is used to design the PCB layout of a circuit. The design can be captured either in schematic capture or directly in layout editor. In the former case, the design is front annotated to the layout editor and in the latter case it is back annotated to schematic editor.

Kicad Open Source EDA

Kicad is an open source (GPL) software for the creation of electronic schematic diagrams and printed circuit board artwork.

KiCad EDA Software Suite

Designed and written by Jean-Pierre Charras, a researcher at LIS (Laboratoire des Images et des Signaux) and a teacher in IUT de Saint Martin d'Hères.(France), in the field of electrical engineering and image processing.

KiCad Schematic

The electrical rules check (ERC) automatically verifies your schematic connections. It checks for output pin conflicts, missing drivers and unconnected pins.

KiCad comes bundled with a vast library of symbols, footprints, and matching 3D models. They are community maintained so they never stop improving.

Make professional PCB layouts with up to 32 copper layers. This modern tool will help you lay out your board faster. As you draw your track, it pushes forward traces that are in the way. If that is not possible, your track will be rerouted around obstacles.


KiCad consists of ..
  • kicad - the project manager
  • eeschema - the schematic editor.
  • cvpcb - the footprint selector for components used in the circuit design.
  • pcbnew - the PCB layout program.
  • gerbview - the Gerber (photoplotter documents) viewer.
