Proteus VSM Simulation was the world''''s first schematic based micro-controller simulation tool and quickly became a de-facto standard for teaching embedded systems within education. Today, we support more processor families along with more embedded peripherals and more technologies than any other tool on the market and we remain world leaders in the field.
The Proteus PCB Design and Layout tools have successfully served both commercial and educational needs for over twenty-five years. Students benefit from exposure to professional grade tools with an intuitive user interface and a quick learning curve.
From China and India, through South America and the USA, and across the UK and Europe, the Proteus Design Suite is trusted as the tool of choice for embedded engineering and electronics learning.
The Visual Designer for Arduino AVR product uses an integrated flowchart editor for software design and an extensive range of pre-designed shields and sensors for hardware design. These virtual hardware blocks contribute high level methods (e.g. drawBitmap(), spinMotor()) to the programming environment so that complex hardware can be controlled with a relatively simple flowchart.
The Proteus schematic capture program is an experimental canvas for students. Placing and wiring is very intuitive and with tens of thousands of components to simulate, curiosity and creativity can be encouraged in equal measure. Together with our world class mixed-mode SPICE simulation engine Proteus provides a safe, fast and immersive learning environment for students.
The ability to interact with a running simulation in Proteus by pressing buttons, ramping POTs or flicking switches makes it ideally suited for engaging students in learning electronic theory.
At introductory levels, simple animations for voltage levels on pins and current flow can be turned on to help students visualise what is happening. As students advance they can use basic meters to take measurements and then be introduced to instrumentation such as an oscilloscope or logic analyser for analysis. Advanced students can then work with more complex circuitry and use graphs to perform a host of more detailed analyses such as frequency, fourier or distortion.
Microcontroller simulation is where Proteus truly leads the way. The whole learning process takes place in software with the schematic capture module serving as the ''''virtual hardware'''' and the VSM Studio IDE module enabling firmware development and compilation.
Embedded Design Courses
Teaching embedded design requires not only microcontrollers but also embedded peripherals and support for interconnect protocols. Proteus VSM includes simulation models for thousands of complex embedded peripherals and fully supports simulation of modern communication protocols such as I2C, SPI, Ethernet and even USB.
PCB Layout Courses
The Layout module in Proteus integrates seamlessly with the rest of the system so students can move their simulated designs through to the board layout phase at the click of a button. A simple, uncluttered user interface then makes it easy for students to focus on learning the electronics rather than the tool itself.
