iCircuit is the premier iPad and iPhone app for designing and experimenting with circuits. Its advanced simulation engine can handle both analog and digital circuits and features realtime always-on analysis. It is the perfect companion to students, hobbyists, and engineers.
You use it as you would any CAD program: you add elements, connect them together, and set their properties.
But iCircuit is unlike other CAD programs because it is always simulating. It's just like working with the real circuit. You do not stop to take a measurement or spend a lot of time configuring reports. Instead, you just play with the circuit as you normally would, with the power on!
There are over 30 elements you can use to build your circuits. The app has everything from simple resistors, to switches, to MOSFETS, to digital gates.
The app features a multimeter that you use to probe around the circuit to instantly read voltages and currents. If you want to see how a value changes over time, then you can add values to the built-in oscilloscope. The scope can simultaneously track many signals over time and features a touch interface to control the total time displayed and stacked and unstacked modes to easily compare signals.
Supported elements include:
• Signal generators, Voltage sources, Current sources, and Dependent sources
• Resistors, Capacitors, and Inductors
• Manual SPST/SPDT Switches, Push buttons, and Relays
• Diodes, BJ Transistors, and MOSFETs
• Speakers, Microphones, Buzzers, DC Motors, and LEDs
• ADCs, and DACs
• Logic gates: AND, OR, NAND, NOR, XOR
• JK and D Flip-flops
• 38 7400 series digital parts
• 7-segment display and driver
• Antenna with simulated AM and FM signals
You can also create sub circuits to introduce new elements and componentize your designs.
No matter your skill set, you'll be playing with circuits in no time with iCircuit.
What's New in Version 1.7.1
• Move circuits from one storage location to another
• Duplicate, move, and delete folders
• Always show pinned tracks in the scope
• Many bug fixes and improvements from version 1.7
Updating may duplicate some of your circuits.
Meets and exceeds expectations
Yes this is a great app, and absolutely indispensable for anyone learning or doing electronics. You can visualize voltage and current for every part of a circuit right there within the components and wires. It's one thing reading equations for an RLC circuit and another to watch it happening live, for example. You can also have your iOS device be a mic or accelerometer input, and output sound to your speakers. Adding components is easy, as is changing their parameters on the fly. Looking forward to what new features are added in the future.
An electrical student's indispensable tool
I am an aspiring electrical engineer and currently taking my first course on electricity. With the help of this app, I have developed a great intuition into how circuits behave beyond what was thought in class.
Other than this being a great app- I would like to suggest there be some sort of database where users could share their own in-app creations along with a voting/rating system. This would serve to expand beyond the default circuit examples.
Great app for demonstrating circuits
This app will visual display what's happening in a circuit. It's a great app for everything from HW to hobby calculations. The only improvement this app could see is the ability to display multiple voltages or currents on the schematic during simulation!
