Electronics ftw

category: general [glöplog]
I'm working on my final project at school, a real-time logic simulator. Available at http://atanua.org with (more or less) daily updates until I run out of stuff to implement and/or inspiration.

Ideas, suggestions, requests, etc. welcome.

make a demo for it.

Not a bad idea. You could theoretically build just about any CPU in that emulator, up to the limit where the program is starting to glitch or be unbearably slow. Memory is a problem though. You'd have to build every flipflop manually. :D

(My post was not meant as a reason to overlook the possibility of making a demo natively in that environment)

Great stuff! My request - develop it further!

Tried it out.... really nice tool, tho it lacks simulating voltage levels, at least in my examples the LEDs were always equally bright.
However, again really nice tool :-)

hashdash: it's not SPICE. It's purely logic simulator, for good and bad.

GJN: further, yes, in what direction? That's what I'm asking..

nitro: there'll possibly be a 8051 based cpu emulated, so who knows.. to appreciate the demo itself, you'd need to know tons of crap though.

noouch: see above.

sol_hsa: I'm testing the program now. Expect an e-mail in a couple of hours.

nitro, *thank you*

Just a small note - I've done several new revisions of the tool, and it now even includes a microcontroller (8051 based).

Six years later, in 2006, I changed jobs, and joined ATI Finland. And AMD bought ATI promptly afterwards.

chapeau :)

wireworld export would be cool

Does it have the possibility of creation of black boxes? I mean, you create a file with N inputs and M outputs, then you save the file, create a new file and import the saved file as a black box, wich will be just an square with the inputs and outputs...
