Circuit simulation: joy for hardcore geeks
Posted by Martin Poulter on 15 January 2009
Thank James W. for finding this amazing Java applet. Wire together capacitors and inductors, or memristors and op-amps, or Voltage Controlled Oscillators and triodes. Watch the electrons shuffle around the circuit. Attach scopes to see the potential and current at different points.
The amount of tinkering and learning you can do here is amazing. “I’ve built a 3-phase rectifier and been learning about zener diodes and transistors by building a shunt regulator (which stops you blowing up your batteries by overcharging)” writes James.
Now watch this post get loads of hits for containing the word “hardcore”.
