Learn about logic gates, flip-flops, and boolean algebra with the help of the simulations which you can create using this piece of software
It’s a tool that displays a more than user-friendly interface and allows you to create circuits by simply dragging components from the available library into the work area and then connecting them with wires.
It offers you the chance to use components from categories such as ‘Input Controls’, ‘Output Controls’, ‘Logic Gates’ and ‘Flip-Flops’. The application is designed to use vector elements so every single item you add to the project look great and only contributes to an even better looking result.
Everything that is added to the project can be moved anywhere, copied or deleted if not needed, rotated clockwise or counterclockwise and used to create integrated circuits. Connections between the components are made with simple clicks on the pins and can be deleted just as easily.
The application and all that involves building the circuit is designed to be as straightforward and comprehensive as possible, allowing the student to focus on and understand how it ends up working rather than how it looks.
Once your circuit is built, Logicly enables you to test it out by running a simulation. The virtual signal is propagated along the connected components and if the circuit contains clocks, they begin to oscillate. To make things easier to understand when something goes wrong, Logicly uses colors to show when pins change state or in the event that a connection is added or removed.
It display colors for signal in high or low state, as well as when this is unknown. You also get a color which tells you that the signal is in the high impedance state. The colors that the application uses by default can be changed according to your taste.
In closing, if you’re looking for a practical and fun to use application that can aid you in explaining how circuits are built and work, you can definitely try Logicly.
