Hello friends hope you all are fine and well. I couldn’t write any Proteus tutorial for quite a long time actually I was very busy in programming stuff. Anyways let’s come to the today’s tutorial, yesterday I got a mail from a student in which he asked me to help him out about Proteus. According to him, he is good in programming but not much in electronics and wants to test his circuit first on Proteus and then want to make PCB of it. After reading his email, this thing clicked my mind that I didn’t post any tutorial on Proteus on TEP. So today I thought of posting about it.
These tutorials are all written and designed by our team. Most of them are open source and you can download the code and simulation from respective tutorials but very few of them, which are quite hard to design, are paid but we have placed very small amount of around $20 so that engineers can buy them easily. If you enjoy these tutorials then don’t forget to like and share them and help us in grow. 🙂
If you guys have any problem anywhere, ask in comments and I will try my best to resolve your issues and also subscribe to our newsletter so that you get these burning tutorials rite in your mail box. I will continuously update this list of tutorials so that we have kind of a database and you guys can find all the tutorials in one place. Let’s come towards the tutorial.
Course Content of This Tutorial
- In today’s part, we will just have a look at the complete course which we will cover in this tutorial. I am calling this a chapter zero of this tutorial.
- In first part of this tutorial, I will introduce few features of Proteus which are very essential for a beginner to know.
- In second part, we will design a complete circuit using Proteus. I will design a LCD circuit using PIC microcontroller and then I will show you how you can test your PIC code in Proteus.
- In third part, we will discuss the various components available in Proteus. I know there’s countless components in its database and we can’t discuss them all but we will discuss which are commonly in use by the students like motors,serial port, microcontrollers etc.
- After that, we will see how to design a component in Proteus if it’s not already in its database. Its important when you need to design a PCB in Proteus.
- After that, we will finally design our PCB in Proteus, both single layered and multi-layered.
- In the end we will see how to design a package for a component, if its not already in Proteus. May be some guys don’t know about it but sooner you will get it.
- In the last part, I will post on request if something’s left in the tutorial.

Components Libraries for Proteus
Proteus has a wide range of components available in its database. But it happens quite a lot that you search for some component in Proteus but you can’t find it in Proteus database. For such cases, Proteus has given a method using which you can design your component in Proteus and can add all of its features in it. Its quite a lengthy process and needs a lot of effort as it involves creation of DLL files using C++ and VSM. We have designed few components libraries for Proteus, using which you can simulate that component or module in Proteus. Here’s the list:
- Arduino Library for Proteus
- Genuino Library for Proteus
