# Arduino protyping simulation software [closed]

Is there any (preferably open source, preferably python; only linux) software for microcontroller board prototyping simulation? I'm an EE and we used spice in classes to simulate circuit level stuff. Is there anything like that?

Is there a specific term for what this would be called? Just simulation software?

Also: I crossposted this on SO because I totally forgot this place existed. Hope that's ok.

• speaking as an old-time unix programmer, you will probably find a lot more embedded programming tools in the windows world. Look for something that works well with WINE or with vmware. A python-based environment would be great, though! – Mark Harrison Dec 26 '10 at 0:09

If you're looking for Arduino simulator, there is virtualbreadboard.net. It can do stuff like this:

• that looks similar to fritzing. fritzing.org – jsolarski Dec 25 '10 at 18:39
• I recommend using both linux and windows. Those restricted to one or the other miss out in great programs, and limit their program portability. – tyblu Dec 25 '10 at 23:02

This simulator is called as SimulIDE just you want to do is after prototype the circuit

right click on the sketch and load the .hex compiled arduino program to this sketch
