The Java Breadboard Simulator application was designed to be a small tool which enables students to simulate circuits developed on a breadboard.
Students can place chips on the breadboard and these chips should work just as the real hardware. In order to allow easy extendability of the system, each chip is a separate class. The user can write new classes for new chips, re-compile the applet and the new chip will be included.
However, this approach means that the application must be downloaded and re-compiled. Also, it requires that the user is able to program in Java.
The "Circuit Design Tools for a Bread-Board Simulator" project involves the development of tools that allow the user to create new chips using standard circuit design tools like schematic circuit diagrams, transition tables and boolean algebra.

· This release updates the wire drawing code to achieve much faster redraw with large circuits (thanks to Nick Glass for this update), also fixed several bugs relating to paths and chip selection glitches in the insert chip panel.
