Design and Simulation Software:
FREE PSpice Software: This is an evaluation version of a popular circuit simulation package. It is powerful enough for most school projects. The schematic capture module may even be used to create schematic diagrams for your formal lab reports. Use this FREE Screen Capture Software to copy them from CircuitMaker to your document.
FREE CircuitMaker: This is similar to Digital Works and PSpice (above), but also lets you work with analog circuits. This program makes it easy to include schematic diagrams in your lab reports. Use this FREE Screen Capture Software to copy them from CircuitMaker to your document.
FREE PAL Programming Software: This DOS-based compiler may be run directly from a floppy disk. No hard disk installation is necessary. It also contains examples of how to program a G16V8 as a combinational logic circuit, as a synchronous counter, and as a state machine.
FREE WinCUPL: Compiler for Programmable Logic Devices. The serial number you should enter is 66999998. Also download a basic tutorial, CUPL Tutorial. This is not a complete instructional manual as it only contains the items necessary to create most general types of programs. A User's Guide is also available.
