Simple circuit simulator Answered


I am a hobbyist , and I am looking for a simple circuit simulator that can tell me if my circuit is working well.

Just simple to use not like those professional that are hard to use and oriented to professionals.

Does anybody know about?

thanks to everyone.

I do not have a lot of experience with circuit simulation. However I am always on the lookout for some good free software.

So I have seen the Wikipedia page titled, "Comparison of EDA software",


The table on that page is sortable, so I can sort it so it puts those with "Yes" for "Open Source?" at the top of the table. Doing this reveals just just two applications with a green "Yes" for both "Simulation?" and "Open Source?" These are: gEDA and KICad



Also I seem to recall there are simulators out there, that are web-based. I mean, they run under a browser, so there is nothing to install. Certainly that is a kind of "simple".

There was Falstad's circuit simulator, here:


I was thinking Digikey (a parts seller) had one too, although maybe they did not. It might be they just had a web-based schematic editor, without simulator. I do not recall the exact URL, but it can probably be found via this link,
