7400 series logic simulator


Atanua is a real time logic simulator to help people learn some of the basics of electronics. Focusing mainly on logic, as opposed to power, this is a fantastic tool to learn with. They have done a fantastic job of making it easy to use as well as good looking. We can see this as being a must have piece of software for any hacker. There is a free version available as long as you aren’t using it commercially.

  1. This looks like fun, but as a coder the logic side of things isn’t what I need most help with – I want to get familiar with good circuit design. I know there are full electronics simulators out there; what do people recommend?

  2. I also recommend Linear Device’s SwitcherCAD; it’s ostensibly for designing switching power supplies, but it works just fine for other SPICE-y purposes.

  3. This is very cool, I’m trying this out for sure. This would come in handy for prototyping stuff if you have it on a laptop and are traveling or something and spending time away from your work bench.

  4. this looks fantastic. Thanks to josh/macegr/rak0ribz for the other recommendations. this is one of those things that I’ve always been looking for but didn’t really know it…
    anybody tried this in wine?

  5. anyone looking for a decent free circuit simulator might want to try circuitmaker. it has both sampled analog and real-time digital modes. :)

  6. “For corporate, government, _EDUCATIONAL_ or commercial use, a license key is required.”

    Way to make a crap license. So if I learn something, I have to pay…awesome.

  7. @mike…thanks, I just assumed it was windows only based on the windows screenshot. had I done 10 seconds of investigation….

    @bencoder…thanks for the softronix link….

  8. @michael: Got watch out, because you can’t just follow that one page to page.. I remember reading something about the order in which you should read that site.

  9. @darkfader: It would be cool if it had that or Eagle CAD integration. Of course it would be cool if Eagle CAD had bread board routing.. hmmm..

  10. well, there’s the national instruments circuit suite design….and its a full simulator…and of course its not free….but its really good so you might wanna invest and get it…
