Abstract

A software tool for easy introduction to the use of simulators in the introductory circuit theory courses J.L. Ballesteros, D. Baez-Lopez Departamento de Ingenieria Electronica, Universidad de las Americas, Puebla Santa Catarina Mdrtir, Cholula, Pue. ABSTRACT Circuit simulators play an important role in circuit design. However, their sintaxis is usually not friendy for students having their first exposure to this technology, causing reluctance toward the use of these kind of software aids. This fact was a driving force for the authors to propose a system by means of which the student could have access to a circuit simulator without having any knowledge about the sintaxis of it. In addition input/output to the system is in a graphic environment. In this way the student only has to specify as input the schematic diagram of his circuit and obtain as the output plots of the desired voltages and currents. The simulator c
