MODULAR ELECTRONICS SOFTWARE - 1

V. Ryan © 2004

 

A range of software exists that allows the user to produce complex circuits by building up ‘modules’ into an overall circuit. Software such as Control Studio® is relatively simple to use and once a circuit is built up it can be exported to software such as PCB Wizard® for production as a PCB. The completed circuit can also be converted to an ordinary circuit diagram by exporting it to software such as Livewire®. In both Control Studio and Live Wire the circuit can be simulated to see if it works and how effective it is.

   

Modular electronics software allows the user to select the type of Inputs, Processes and outputs for a particular circuit. Examples of some inputs, processes and outputs are shown below.

   

Control Studio® is based on a SYSTEMS approach. Most circuits have Inputs, a Process and Outputs. When loading the software a menu appears that allows the user to choose either an input, process, amplifier, driver, output or measure. This type of software allows the designer to build a complex circuit without the complex knowledge of all components or how they are built into circuits. A basic understanding of modular electronics is all that is needed.

 
 
 

The software also allows the designer to add a range of amplifiers and drivers to circuits.

This means a comprehensive range of circuits can be developed, by simply ‘clicking’ on the appropriate electronics modules and joining them together with connectors.
