 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

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.

thank you

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:

Using such a simulator, you should be able to load the hex file the Arduino IDE generates into it and work from there...

I will not respond to Arduino help PM's from random forum users; if you have such a question, start a new topic thread.

What is it you want to simulate?  Just the microcontroller or your whole project? 

Simulators can do a good job of simulating just the microcontroller.  However, they aren't going to be useful at simulating how a motor will work with that microcontroller.

If the Arduino can't do it then I don't know what can. You'll need external components for high current of course but the Arduino is more than capable of providing the control logic and motor driver boards are easy to find.

I doubt you need a 2560 for a single motor. An Arduino Uno has plenty of pins for that even with some sensors and control buttons.
