Proteus Professional 8.6 SP2 | 249 Mb
Proteus combines ease of use with powerful features to help you design, test and layout professional PCBs like never before. With nearly 800 microcontroller variants ready for simulation straight from the schematic, one of the most intuitive professional PCB layout packages on the market and a world class shape based autorouter included as standard, Proteus Design Suite 8 delivers the complete software package for today and tomorrow’s engineers.
What is Visual Designer?
Visual Designer for Arduino combines world class Proteus VSM simulation with an easy to use flowchart editor and a gallery of virtual hardware to provide a truly integrated and intuitive development environment for Arduino.
The peripheral gallery makes hardware design easy. Simply add a shield or sensor from the gallery and Visual Designer will automatically place the correct circuitry on the Proteus schematic for you and add some simple methods to Visual Designer that allow you to control the hardware.
The software is then designed as a flowchart so you can easily drag and drop these methods along with decisions, delays and assignments to drive the Arduino hardware.
Compile and simulate at the press of the button, making use of our renowned simulation and debugging technology to watch your design come to life on screen.
Finally, transfer to the physical Arduino hardware with a single mouse click and see it working first time in the real world.
Peripheral Gallery full of ready-made Arduino™ Shields and Sensors.
Drag and Drop Arduino™ Programming with Flowcharts.
World Class System Level Simulation, Measurement and Debugging.
Program the equivalent Arduino™ hardware at the press of a button.
Simplifying Hardware Design
Hardware in Visual Designer starts with the Peripheral Gallery. This contains dozens of ready-made schematic circuit blocks corresponding to real Arduino™ shields and Grove modules. The user simply selects the peripheral(s) they want from the gallery and Visual Designer then:
Auto-places the circuitry on the schematic.
Adds the external peripherals to Visual Designer.
Provides simple methods that you can drag and drop onto the flowchart to control the hardware.
If an Arduino shield is added then it will automatically be connected to the processor base board. If a Grove sensor is added, it can easily be edited to change the socket ID to correspond with your real hardware. In either case Visual Designer will check to make sure that pins are not used by more than one shield or sensor.
