EMBEDDED SYSTEMS TUTORIAL4- SIMULATING OUR
FIRST PROJECT ON PROTEUS
Hii….. friends again I am here with next tutorial on EMBEDDED SYSTEMS with
PROTEUS. In case you have not arranged your hardware or there is some problem with
your hardware or you are making any mistake in using them( highly expected ..:P) this
tutorial with be really beneficial for you.
PROTEUS is highly recommended for all of you its is very easy to use and user
friendly software please download it . It will help you a lot and if you are facing problems
in using it don’t worry I will post some article on PROTEUS later but please arrange it.
Proteus is a unique software for MPU/MCU simulation, schematic capture and PCB
layout designing. With this Virtual System Modelling facility, you can transform your
product design cycle, reaping huge rewards in terms of reduced time to market and
lower costs of development.
It is a open source software you can download it from
Download it and install it. Installing process document is usually provided with download
material if it is not provided then please let me know I will post another article on
Proteus installation. After installation you will find there are two different Proteus
software are installed ISIS and ARES. ISIS is for circuit design and simulation and
ARES is for PCB layout designing. So we are going to discuss about ISIS only we will
discuss about ARES in any PCB designing tutorial which I will post later. U can
simulate any analog circuit or our microcontroller projects with this software here we are
going to simulate our first blinking LED project.
So lets start with ISIS here is complete step wise process
click on ISIS 7 proffesional icon a window will pop up like this.
Now click on file and save your design at a desired location.
Now its time to choose component click on component mode icon as shown in figure
then click on P or simply tap P on keyboard.Search your component and click
ok after selecting suitable component.
You can put these components in design area simply by clicking on them.
For power supply click on terminal mode icon , after that make connections using
your mouse its simple. POWER will give +5v and ground can be achieved by using
Your circuit is now complete and now u have to program your microcontroller with the
hex file so RIGHT CLICK on MCU>choose EDIT PROPERTIES > browse HEX FILE>
CLICK OK, now your MCU is programmed with our first project hex file.
Now its time to show result simply click on PLAY button (BOTTOM LEFT
CORNER)and led will start blinking.
This was the basic of PROTEUS there are a lot of
amazing things in PROTEUS I will post some more articles to explore this wonderful
software. I hope this article was beneficial for all of you , if you have any doubts,
questions or critical views you can post a comment .I will answer that. In next
tutorial we will discuss about some input/ output interfacing of microcontroller…till then
