3DLab Circuit Simulation

The 3DLab simulator is introduced early into the content of the program to help students visualize basic electronic circuits and to begin to interact directly with them, just like in a real lab. Animations of the lab simulations supplement the working labs to create a multimedia environment that is very engaging and allows students to virtually step into the laboratory and circuit they are working on.

CircuitLogix Circuit Simulation

CircuitLogix is a powerful, yet easy to use schematic capture and circuit simulation tool which includes over 4,000 device models, and eight virtual instruments. The schematic capabilities enable students to draw any electronics circuit and create a netlist for PCB design tools and autorouters. Students can easily build an analog or digital circuit schematic, attach test instruments and run the simulator to see how the circuit functions. It can perform a live, free running simulation of the digital portion of a circuit and also perform analog and mixed analog/digital simulations based on Berkeley SPICE (Simulation Program with Integrated Circuit Emphasis) and XSPICE.

Using CircuitLogix, students have the freedom to try all the ”what-if” scenarios they can imagine – changing parts or component values, then re-running the simulations to see how changes affect the circuits operations and performance.
