Free Student Version of CircuitLogix Software Released
Now electronics and engineering students can use advanced simulation software to better prepare for high-tech electronics careers.

TORONTO, CANADA, November 7, 2008 - Logic Design Inc. has announced the release of a new Student Version of their popular CircuitLogix electronic design and simulation software. Students can use CircuitLogix to learn electronics and better prepare for an electronics career. Best of all, the Student Version is available for free for students to download from the CircuitLogix website at As an added bonus, students can also download free circuit files to accompany all the major electronics textbooks.

"This new Student Version of CircuiLogix will be a great asset to those studying electricity, electronics, electro-mechanics, engineering, physics and even math, because it gives students access to industry-level circuit design and simulation for free," said Scott Duncan, Vice-President of sales and marketing at Logic Design Inc. "Using CircuitLogix, students can design electronic circuits, then test and troubleshoot them right on the computer. There are no expensive parts or equipment to buy, and they can make changes to their circuits and see the results instantly."

The CircuitLogix software provides a "virtual electronics lab" where users can freely experiment with electronic circuits and learn how to create working electronic devices. Users can design basic to advanced circuits, like those used in cell-phones, radios, TVs and computers. The software provides a comprehensive library of devices to choose from, and has various "virtual instruments" like oscilloscopes and multimeters that allow users to measure, test and troubleshoot the circuits they create.

Educational institutions worldwide, from high schools to universities, use CircuitLogix in the classroom to teach electronics. CircuitLogix helps students learn electronics theory and see how it applies to real-life situations. It also gives schools an affordable supplement to traditional electronics lab equipment, which can be costly to maintain.

"I have been using CircuitLogix for approximately 3 years in our distance education electronics programs," said Brenda Yip, Manager of Distance Education, George Brown College. "Before we had CircuitLogix we used other simulators and from my experience CircuitLogix is by far the best electronics simulator on the market. It is a very intuitive, and powerful software simulation package. The students really love this software. There are many exciting things that can be done with it, with minimal knowledge."

The Student Version has the same basic features as the Full Version of CircuitLogix, but is restricted to a maximum of 50 parts per design and a library of 1,000 models. The Full Version includes 3DLab, which is a powerful 3D Virtual-reality lab that allows students to design and build DC circuits. Other limitations of the Student Version include PCB netlist output, and the restriction on the creation of new devices.

Students who are unable to download the Student Version or who prefer a hard copy can purchase a CircuitLogix Student Version CD with User Manual for $50 from Logic Design directly. Logic Design also provides many ancillary products for CircuitLogix including computer-based training CDs in Electronics, Electro-Mechanics, and Programmable Logic Controllers, as well as textbooks, and course-management software. A complete listing of the educational products is available at the Logic Design website:
