Electronic Circuit Simulation can be regarded as an important aspect of  the undergraduate curriculum of Electronics Engineering/ Electrical Engineering/ Instrumentation Engineering disciplines. The aim of this workshop is to work out a methodology to teach these courses more effectively at the undergraduate level. Exposure to this basic skill is indispensable to researchers as well.  

The FOSSEE (Free/Libre and Open Source Software for Education) project at IIT Bombay (https://fossee.in) has been promoting Moodle, and other FLOSS, such as OpenFOAM, Scilab, Python, eSim, Osdag, OpenModelica, R, Drupal and Linux, and open source hardware, such as Arduino and OpenPLC. The FOSSEE Project is funded by NMEICT, Ministry of Education, Govt. of India.

Methodology of the Workshop

The workshop will be conducted using a mix of pre-recorded spoken tutorial videos with side by side learning and live lectures. A number of practice problems will also be provided after every topic followed by discussions on them to get a good understanding of each topic.

Participants will get the software, user manual, learning material, and hundreds of circuits simulated using eSim.  A tool to convert circuits in Pspice to eSim will also be introduced to all the participants.  By making use of these resources, those who are interested in conducting eSim workshops by themselves, will be able to do so.

Benefits of the Workshop

On successful completion the workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Learn to create electronic circuit schematic and PCB design.
  • Learn to simulate electronic circuits using eSim
  • Learn to create digital model by writing VHDL code
  • Use the digital model for standalone digital simulations or mixed-signal simulations
  • Certificate for attending 3 day eSim Workshop.

Course content

At the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • understand how to create circuit schematics
  • understand what netlists are and how to analyse them
  • simulate analog, digital as well as mixed-signal circuits
  • learn the process of designing a printed circuit board(PCB)
  • export the PCB design in various formats which are used for peer reviews and/or fabrication of the board
  • create a model of a digital component using VHDL and simulate it
