Simulating Electronic Circuits on Android Device using Virtual Bread Board

Zeeshan Ali


For more than forty years, the breadboard had been a valuable instrument for fundamental electronic experiments. In any case, even for an experienced user, a complicated wiring work could be a bad dream amid the procedure of experiment. It requires time for wiring, as well as a non-consistent error may emerge at whatever point there is a free contact between jump wire and the electrical terminals of the breadboard. That is to state, once in a while, you can't guarantee that the affirmed circuit works accurately even after a cautious wiring work. In this paper, focused on digital circuits, we examine the effect of substituting a simulation for real breadboard equipment. We have designed android based virtual breadboard, which will be used for building circuits and to test the output of the circuit, it replaces the faulty equipment and also it eases the building of circuit and replaces the complex wiring mechanism and also it enables the user to identified the faulty circuit before PowerOn the circuit which saves the user from non-logical error. During field study we find out that simulations are more productive and cost effective and also there is less chance of doing logical errors also it removes the doubt of faulty equipment.
