Falstad Circuit Simulator

Per Mark’s suggestion, I decided to create a Resources category. For my first post, I will post an obvious one.

The falstad circuit simulator is one of the best ways to get an intuitive feel for electronics using simulation. They visualize current flow throughout the circuits, which is one of the best ways to start learning about electronics. Though we focused on LTspice for CE v1 and v2, we will be using Falstad in v3 of CE.


Of note is the “Circuits” menu at the top of the applet. This is a great way to look through a variety of circuits, such as a 555 timer or an op amp circuit.

This is great! I had used circuits.io in the past. It is a bit more visual, but also has some visualization. Have you used that one?
