Best Circuit Simulators

Web circuit simulators are very useful tools for electricians as they are used to design and control circuit diagrams.

A good feature that would be good to have a simulator is to be easy to use and fast.

Our team from the University of Cyprus (sim4you) has created a list of some online simulators to choose the right one for you based on your needs.

EasyEDA (

EasyEDA is a free, online EDA tool that incorporates powerful schematic download, integrated circuit simulator and PCB layout in a multi-platform browser environment for electronic engineers, educators, students and hobbyists.

- An ever-growing community
- The parts library is quite large
- High quality PCB design is possible
- Circuit / PCB design is easy for beginners.
- EasyEDA is completely FREE

- Completing the simulation is somewhat difficult. You must follow the guide.

DC/AC Virtual Lab (

The DC / AC Virtual Lab is an online simulator that can build DC / AC circuits. The DC / AC Virtual Lab has quite attractive graphics and its details look real.

- Simple UI, good for students and educators
- The parts look like real ones, not just symbols

- The DC / AC Virtual Lab is NOT completely free
- The parts library is very limited

EveryCircuit (

EveryCircuit is an online circuit simulator with very well designed graphics. It is very easy to use and has an easy and understandable electronic design system.

- EveryCircuit is also available for mobile platforms (Android and iOS)
- Impressive animation of various dynamic parameters
- It offers many examples and pre-designed circuits that help beginners a lot

- This platform is not free
- It lacks many useful ICs

Autodesk Circuits (

AutoDesk circuits is a PCB simulation tool. It offers the ability to design the circuit, use the famous Arduino platform, simulate the circuit and finally create the PCB. You can program the Arduino directly from this software simulation.

- It can simulate the Arduino
- Output design is easier to interpret and will be a handy reference while creating a real connection
- The library has many places

- The design of the circuit is a little harder than other simulators
- Time consuming circuit design
