CircuitLab Alternatives

CircuitLab is described as 'Sketch, simulate, and share your circuits, entirely in your browser -- no install required. Easy schematic capture and powerful SPICE-like, mixed-mode circuit simulation helps EE students, electronics hobbyists, and electrical engineers design faster' and is a circuit simulator in the education & reference category. There are more than 25 alternatives to CircuitLab, not only websites but also apps for a variety of platforms, including Windows, Linux, Mac and Android. The best alternative is Circuit JS, which is both free and Open Source. Other great sites and apps similar to CircuitLab are EasyEDA, Circuit Simulator (CircuitJS1), gEDA Project and SimulIDE.

CircuitLab alternatives are mainly Circuit Simulators but may also be Electronic Design Automation Tools or CAD Software. Filter by these if you want a narrower list of alternatives or looking for a specific functionality of CircuitLab.

  1. Circuit JS

    • FreeOpen Source
    • Mac
    • Windows
    • Linux
    • Online

    This is a javascript electronic circuit simulator. When the applet starts up you will see an animated schematic of a simple LRC circuit. The green color indicates positive voltage. The gray color indicates ground. A red color indicates negative voltage.

    Circuit JS vs CircuitLab opinions
    Most users think Circuit JS is a great alternative to CircuitLab.

    you cannot even select an lm317 to draw a circuit with. and i can't draw an lm317 out of it's internal elements myself if there is no schematic with value's available.
