Is there any High-School level software for Linux which can simulate simple electronic circuits, (e.g. flip-flop circuit), and run them?

Kicad is not an easy to learn software and cannot be used for educational purposes.

  • Should it be free (both meanings)? Commented Feb 19, 2015 at 22:21

    I prefer a free software in Ubuntu. Commented Feb 19, 2015 at 22:46

Assuming you mean digital simulation Logisim seems to meet your requirements (donno about the "easy to learn" aspect, tho - that's open to interpretation)

  • It is not realistic. For example there are no batteries or lamps available. Commented Apr 23, 2015 at 17:12
  • @MinimusHeximus Then you should have written a better question (more requirements). That helps you get the answers you want. You can still edit it, and add your comment answer to Adrian as well.

    Hm, quite a leap from batteries and bulbs to flipflop simulations. I doubt you'll find a single tool covering them both at a simple-enough level (you could do it with SPICE-like tools, but that's fairly advanced). For realy basic subjects you can find per-subject simulators, like these ones: physicsclassroom.com/Physics-Interactives/Electric-Circuits/… jersey.uoregon.edu/vlab/Voltage Google's your friend: google.ca/?gws_rd=ssl#q=battery+bulb+simulator.

  • Well, physicsclassroom.com/Physics-Interactives/Electric-Circuits/ is good. But I'm looking for something more than just batteries and lamps. Somehing which includes resisters, capacitors, diodes, transisters and probably speakers too. including voltmeter and amperemeters. And by realistic I mean the lamps will turn on like a real experiment. Logisim is too pure and I don't think a beginner will understand it. Commented Apr 25, 2015 at 8:26
