Atanua is a real-time logic simulator, designed to help in learning of basic boolean logic and electronics. It uses OpenGL hardware-accelerated rendering and a custom UI designed for a fast workflow and a very low learning curve, letting the students concentrate on learning the subject instead of spending time learning the tool.
Features Atanua real-time logic simulator
- Intuitive, hardware-accelerated interface.
- Available for Windows, Linux and Mac os X.
- Real-time logic simulation (at 1000Hz).
- Most common logic blocks, with both US and Finnish symbols.
- Simulation of various 74-series chips.
- Simulation of a 8051 microcontroller variant.
- Input through keyboard-bound buttons, output through various LEDs and 7-segment displays.
- Plug-in interface for creation of custom parts.
- Instant feedback through wire colors, which show signal states and error states.
- Helpful tooltips.
- Anti-cheating tool available for teachers for homework validation.
Wire colors show the state of the connection.
- Gray wire means there’s no signal input.
- Red means there’s more than one signal input, or something else is wrong.
- Bright green is signal high.
- Dark green is signal low.
