Proteus 8.12 Shareware
Recommended Applications for Windows
Proteus is a great electrical suite for circuit simulation purposes. You can simulate a single processor or multiple ones at the same time. The application is a great alternative for Virtual System Modelling.
Proteus is a Virtual System Modelling and circuit simulation application. The suite combines mixed mode SPICE circuit simulation, animated components and microprocessor models to facilitate co-simulation of complete microcontroller based designs. Proteus also has the ability to simulate the interaction between software running on a microcontroller and any analog or digital electronics connected to it. It simulates Input / Output ports, interrupts, timers, USARTs and all other peripherals present on each supported processor.
This is not the full Proteus software, it is a demo version. The Limitations of the demonstration version are as follows:
- You cannot print any Schematics, Bill of Materials or Layouts.
- You cannot save your work.
- You cannot simulate your own microcontroller designs.
You can however write your own software programs to run on the existing sample design suite for evaluation purposes. It is not time limited!

Proteus version 8.12
Release Date: 2017-02-28
Changes: Proteus 8.12 - New Features:
- Multi-Board Support: A formal scheme for product designs which have multiple rigid boards but a single schematic. Each board can have its own stackup and design rules and work on specific boards can be switched via a simple combo box. The design explorer module provides a global overview of the project and all of the output systems such as Bill of Materials and CADCAM are board aware.
- Differential Pair Pass Through: It's very common for passive devices to be part of the differential pair (between source and destination pins). This makes it harder to treat the signal as a single entity and complicates things like length matching. In this release we've introduced a scheme whereby you can specify these passives as pass through devices. They will then contribute any specified pin length (x2) plus the pad-> pad distance on the PCB (footprint distance) to any length matching calculations.
- Non Functional Pads: Despite the name non functional pads are typically vias on which the annular ring is removed on layers where no connection is made. This can make a little more space in a tight area of the board or serve to reduce stray capacitance near sensitive signals. We've introduced support for NFP either via global command or to all vias inside a selection box. Design rules measurements take place either from the hole edge for depleted layers or from the edge of the annular ring where present. Users can remove and restore NFP as needed and the system will automatically restore the annular ring if the via is manually routed to on a layer that is currently depleted.
- SnapEDA Web Search: We've added integration with SnapEDA as a second vendor in the integrated web search, allowing direct access to their vast online library of parts and direct import into the Proteus application.
- Cloud Licensing: We've added access to log files, a heartbeat indicator and an authorised IP list to the web portal for enterprise customer cloud licensing.
Proteus version 8.6
Release Date: 2017-02-28
Changes: Version 8.6 is a significant release in our PCB development schedule with three main areas of focus.
First, we have introduced comprehensive support for automatic length matching on the PCB. Having configured tolerances and the serpentine shape the user can simply select the relevant tracks and then the invoke the match command from the context menu.
Proteus version 7.1
Release Date: 2008-11-11
Changes: Several fixes and updates
