Useful Free Software

Free Circuit Simulator

This is a free Electronic Circuit Simulator Programme. There are versions for both Windows and Linux. I've installed it successfully on SuSE 8.2, SuSE 9.2 and SuSE 10.1 and PCLinuxOS 2012. It's worth downloading for the easy-to-use Schematic Drawing Tool alone.

Free PCB Design Software

Free Software - with lots of useful tips and advice - to help you Design Your Own PCB Layouts. I don't use it myself - I prefer to use Veroboard. But it's easy to learn and it's easy to use. If you've produced a PCB layout for one of my circuits - using this or any other software - I'd appreciate a copy.

Free Stripboard Layout Software

This Free Software from VeeCAD.com will help you Design Your Own Veroboard Layouts. Simply draw the circuit diagram using a schematic editor - such as the equally free TinyCAD. Then import the netlist. VeeCAD is easy to learn and easy to use. Everything you need to know is in the "Help" file.

Designing Veroboard Layouts With Excel Or EasyCalc

Design your own veroboard / stripboard layouts using Microsoft Excel - or using the Free OpenOffice - EasyCalc. These small files (Under 15k) include a veroboard template - a few common component shapes - and a sample layout. You can draw additional components - as required.

Free Anti-Spyware Software

A free programme to help you identify and remove from your hard-drive - software routines that spy on you and compromises your privacy. You don't know they're there - and you don't know what they're up to. This programme lets you get rid of them - and the regular free updates catch any new varieties that manage to slip by. Try it - you may be surprised by what you find.

Free DeskPins Software

This free programme lets you add the "Always on Top" feature to any window. It's worth downloading just for your calculator. Click on the DeskPins icon in the taskbar tray. The mouse pointer turns into a pushpin. Then simply click on the window you want to remain on top.

Inkscape - A Free Graphics Programme.

I've used Inkscape to draw some of the stripboard layouts on this site. It's available for Windows, Linux and Mac. To get your free copy - go to Cnet.Com. Enter the word "Inkscape" into the search box. And select the version you require - from the results.

Practical Guides

Drawing Veroboard Layouts

This page shows how I used to draw the Veroboard Layouts published on my Website. I still use a similar approach when drawing the Schematic Diagrams. Please feel free to use any of my drawings - if they will help you to create your own designs.

Drawing Veroboard Layouts No.2

This page has everything you'll need to copy my latest stripboard design technique. I use a programme called Inkscape. It's available free for Windows, Linux and Mac. And I've included a couple of examples - to help you get a feel for how it works.

Building Circuits On Veroboard

This is a beginners guide to building with stripboard. Starting with a schematic diagram for a small audio amplifier - it provides a step-by-step account of how to turn the schematic diagram into an actual working device. And colour photographs clearly illustrate each step along the way.

A Comprehensive Guide To Using Windows

You can download free chapters from the latest edition of "The Secret Guide to Computers" by Russ Walter. One of those chapters is a comprehensive guide to using the various versions of the Windows operating system. But there's a lot more than that. So even if you know all about Windows - take a look at the other free chapters.
