Electronics Assistant - A
Windows-based program written by
Electronics 2000. It includes
calculators for resistance, ohms law, power,
capacitance and more. A simple program allowing
offline use of the interactive calculators on
this site. Go here to download
EPE FTP Site - Everyday Practical
Electronics have an FTP site containing
software for microcontroller-based projects in
the magazine (see magazines section) as well as
a useful resistor code calculator program, and
other useful information.
Evil Genius Resistor Attack - A game to
teach resistor colour codes. To play move left
and right using the arrow keys. 'Shoot' at the
attacking resistor by pressing the number key
corresponding to the resistor colour. E.g. to
kill a yellow resistor move below it and press
4, for a red resistor press 2.
Karnaugh Minimizer - A program for
minimising Boolean algebra for logic circuits
using Karnaugh maps. Much quicker and easier
than doing it by hand! Can produce a schematic
or VHDL code from a Boolean equation or truth
SIMetrix - SPICE or SIMPLIS circuit simulation software.
Free fully featured versions are available, subject to generous circuit size limits.
SoftBattery - Useful software
including a serial communications program with a number of special functions.
VeeCAD - CAD software for designing stripboard layouts.
Takes a netlist from schematic design software and produces a stripboard layout,
just like a PCB design program. Free and commercial versions available.
YMEC Software - Real-time
virtual instrumentation including a signal
generator, oscilloscope, FFT analyser and more.
Site includes measurement application notes.
