Livewire Professional Edition
Livewire Professional Edition is a complex application meant to help you easily design electrical and electronic circuits and simulate them, in order to evaluate their performance. This tool is mainly aimed at professionals, but thanks to its user-friendly interface, it can also be used by students.
Livewire Professional Edition allows you to create a circuit using all the components you need, such as power suppliers, switchers, connectors, semi-conductors, fuses or voltage regulators from the 'Gallery', then connect them together using wires. Any component can be customized by double-clicking it and changing its properties, while selecting a specific model can make it act like the real-life object.
When you finish drawing your circuit, Livewire Professional Edition enables you to run it in a simulation, featuring an animation to show current flow, charge or voltage levels. This can be used in a physics class, for instance, to exemplify particular lessons or demonstrate certain notions. What is more, you can present the created circuit in various styles – from the left edge of the window, that respectively emphasize the current flow or the logic levels.
Livewire Professional Edition allows you to convert the design to a Printed Circuit Board, which can be done with a 'PCB Wizard', that makes the conversion process simple for you while also preserving all the important elements into the final result.
Additionally, the program enables you to enhance the appearance of your documents and projects, by enabling you to add various text boxes, tables, symbols, clip-art elements, pictures, draw shapes or add hyperlinks, thus improving and completing the experience for the intended recipients of these files.
Livewire Professional Edition, aside from being an application aimed at engineers and electricians, proves itself as a useful learning tool. Thanks to its ability to create simple circuits, Livewire Professional Edition provides teachers with an efficient means of stimulating students' interest in physics, through visual demonstrations.
