A couple of weeks ago, I wrote an article about a digital and analog circuit simulator called ksimus. One of my readers asked what the difference was between ksimus and ktechlab so I thought I'd take a look at ktechlab. Let me just say that both of these programs are a lot of fun to play with.

My first impression of ktechlab was that it has a much richer assortment of components from which to build circuits. Unlike ksimus, ktechlab includes an addressable memory as well as DAC's, ADC's and even a PIC micro-controller! As I'll discuss later, I had to use Google to find out what some of the components were. Ktechlab's documentation seems to be reasonably complete though the program's website has a lot of broken links. The website does include a plea for help from the user community, so if you find the program useful, perhaps you can help the program's developers by helping with the website...
