Circuit Wizard 2: A Complete Package for Circuit Design, PCB Design, Simulation and CAD/CAM
Circuit Wizard 2 is a revolutionary new system that combines circuit design, PCB design, simulation and CAD/CAM in one complete package. It is designed to help you create, test and manufacture electronic circuits and projects with ease and efficiency.
Circuit Wizard 2 provides you with all the tools necessary to produce an electronics project from start to finish â even including on-screen testing of the PCB prior to construction. You can design your circuit using a wide range of components, such as resistors, capacitors, transistors, LEDs, switches, sensors, microcontrollers and more. You can also import your own custom components and libraries.
Circuit Wizard 2 also features a powerful simulation engine that allows you to test your circuit in real time and see how it behaves under different conditions. You can view various measurements and graphs, such as voltage, current, power, frequency and logic states. You can also use interactive instruments, such as oscilloscopes, multimeters, signal generators and logic analyzers.
Once you are satisfied with your circuit design, you can convert it to a PCB layout with a single click. Circuit Wizard 2 automatically optimizes the placement and routing of your components and tracks, while giving you full control over the design parameters. You can also edit the PCB layout manually using various tools, such as move, rotate, copy, delete, add vias, change track width and more.
Circuit Wizard 2 also supports CAD/CAM manufacture of your PCB. You can export your PCB layout to various formats, such as Gerber, Excellon, DXF and PDF. You can also print your PCB layout directly from the software or use the built-in CAM features to control a CNC machine or a laser cutter.
Circuit Wizard 2 is a versatile and user-friendly software that can help you create professional-quality electronic circuits and projects. It is suitable for beginners as well as experts in electronics. You can download a free trial version of Circuit Wizard 2 from here [^1^] or buy the full version from here [^3^].
In this article, we will show you how to use Circuit Wizard 2 to design, simulate and manufacture a simple LED flasher circuit. This circuit consists of a 555 timer IC, a resistor, a capacitor and an LED. The 555 timer IC generates a square wave signal that alternately turns the LED on and off. The frequency of the flashing can be adjusted by changing the values of the resistor and the capacitor.
To design the circuit, follow these steps:
Open Circuit Wizard 2 and select \"New Circuit Design\" from the \"File\" menu.
From the \"Components\" toolbar, drag and drop a 555 timer IC, a resistor, a capacitor and an LED onto the design area.
Connect the components as shown in the figure below. You can use the \"Wire\" tool from the \"Tools\" toolbar to draw wires between the pins of the components. You can also use the \"Label\" tool to add labels to the components and wires.
Double-click on each component to edit its properties. For example, you can change the value of the resistor to 10k ohms, the value of the capacitor to 10 microfarads and the color of the LED to red.
The circuit design should look like this: aa16f39245
