Arduino goes virtual with Autodesk

Autodesk and have launched a new tool that allows DIY Makers to more easily design and test projects powered by Atmel-based Arduino boards.

Aptly dubbed 123D Circuits, the utility boasts a virtual breadboard-based design which enables Makers to build and experiment with Arduino circuits just as they would in real life. Code can be edited in a browser, facilitating real-time and interactive simulation of the targeted circuit. Plus, Makers are now able to simultaneously work on the same (virtual) project with their friends, compiling and emulating  Arduino code inside a live, editable circuit.

Additional key features and capabilities include:

  • A powerful, yet easy-to-use component editor which makes it easy to add new components to the shared library.
  • Facilitates the creation of slick circuit boards with free text, b-splice silkscreen art and arbitrary board shapes.
  • Capable of embedding designs, including simulations, on a blog or in an Instructable.
