Hey all, I have just started learning about Arduino. I want to know about softwares that I can use to simulate the arduino 2560 mega board. I am looking to develop a machine to drive a motor which is used to pull a small pulley. Before I purchase the arduino board, I want to know if this board is ideal for our purposes. If anybody knows about softwares for simulating arduino board then Please help.
You probably won't find much (if anything) simulating an Arduino. What you will find, if you look, are simulators for the AVR ATMega2560 (and other Atmel products). Here is one, for instance:http://www.labcenter.com/products/avr.cfm
Using such a simulator, you should be able to load the hex file the Arduino IDE generates into it and work from there...
