Logic Simulator for Raspberry Pi 3 B+?

Thu May 24, 2018 11:13 pm

So, like a lot of people here, I'm a nerd. I build computers using boolean logic on Minecraft. But, recently, I found an app called Smart Logic Simulator, and have made some stuff like 5 function ALU's, RAM, etc. Now, because I don't have Minecraft Java bought, nor do I have the time to set it up on the Pi, I would like to know if there is a logic simulator like Smart Logic Simulator. Here is a download link to it: ... r&hl=en_US

Those are some example of what I have made. The integrated circuits seen, are my creations, but put into an IC to make it easier to reuse. I highly suggest you use the app to find out. I really want an app like this. The integrated circuit function is crucial to me as I hate making the same circuit over and over.

Another option would be to run the app itself on the Pi. I have a 3 B+, so no Android operating system will work on it as of yet, at least, from my current knowledge. So if there is a way, please tell me how to run an Android apk directly on Raspbian.

I do all my hardware logic design simulation using Icarus or the Verilator

I don't actually create my logic designs in Verilog mind. I use SpinalHDL

I'm pretty sure all of the above works on a Raspberry Pi.

When you have a logic design that looks good you can get it into some Lattice FPGA chips using Yosys:

It's all a lot of fun.
Memory in C++ is a leaky abstraction .

• Don't like the board ? Missing features ? Change to the prosilver theme ! You can find it in your settings.
• Don't like to search the forum BEFORE posting 'cos it's useless ? Try googling : yoursearchtermshere

Appears to be installed by default too.
I just typed "smartsim" into the command line out of curiosity and SmartSim appeared on the screen.

maybe BrainBox can help. You can create new elements with an inliine shape designer and you have access to all GPIO pins.
In this case you cna connect LED or switches and use them within your simulated circuit.
