Labcenter Electronics has added support for Philips Electronics' 16bit/32bit ARM7-based LPC2000 family of microcontrollers (mcus) to its Proteus Virtual System Modeling (vsm) co-simulation software. As a result, you can now simulate the LPC2000 MCU along with external peripherals and other electronic circuits.

Proteus combines mixed-mode SPICE circuit simulation, animated components and microprocessor models to facilitate co-simulation of a complete microcontroller-based design, making it possible to develop and test that design before building a physical prototype.

With Proteus VSM, you can interact with the design using on-screen indicators such as LEDs, LCDs and actuators. The simulation takes place in or close to real time. Proteus VSM also provides extensive debugging facilities including breakpoints, single stepping and variable display for both assembly code and high-level language source.

The VSM architecture allows additional animated models to be created by anyone, including end-users. While many types of animated models can be produced without resorting to coding, a documented interface lets you write your own models packaged as Windows DLLs. These models can implement purely electrical behavior or be combined with graphical behavior to simulate almost any kind of application-specific peripheral.

Proteus VSM for the LCP2000 is available for $599.
