Circuit Fantasia – Present and Invent Electronic Circuits

This site presents a completely novel concept in electronics education as an alternative to the classical approach. Based on human imagination and intuition rather than formal reasoning, it is implemented as an interactive multimedia electronics product.

It is intended for students, teachers, hobbyists, inventors and for all those who do not make do with traditional formal explanations of electronic circuit phenomena. The product consists of tutorials, collections of circuits, basic principles and heuristic tools implemented by means of dynamic text, interactive step-by-step controlled animations, hyperlinks, hidden explanation buttons and sounds associated to the circuit operation. Created by Cyril Mechkov.

These are simple and easy for learning, it is oriented towards practical electronics. It has a rich experience of Glen, who has seen the real electronics engineering as it evolved.

Glen is like the Murphy for Electronics Engineering. There has be a “Laws of Glen” one can digest and precipitate from his valuable writings. – 8051 – Altera HDL UP1

“I wrote an 8051 CPU emulation core with complete instruction-set support. The core is fast and has been well tested. The Intel MCS-51 BASIC interpreter code runs perfectly as an example, see the example application below. ” – Jean Nicolle

  • The CPU core is fully emulated, all instructions.
  • Interrupts are not emulated (which would be pretty easy to add).
  • On-chip peripherals are not emulated (which would be much more complex to do completely and accurately)

Here are a few designs targeted for Altera’s UP1-board. They are programmed using HDLs (AHDL, VHDL and Verilog HDL). These designs can be useful as demos for the UP1 board and HDL source examples. They emulate some old video games.
