Arduino Libraries V1.0
The involvement of microcontrollers like Arduino makes the embedded system more versatile and easy to use. Users can now install the Arduino library for Proteus and design multiple types of embedded system projects. The zip file of the Arduino library contains multiple Arduino versions. Here is the list of Arduino boards designed by TEP:
The Arduino has developed another class of microcontroller named Geniuno that is sold under the umbrella of Genuino Labs. These are Arduino-compatible microcontrollers and have more affordable working mechanisms. These can be used with the Arduino software and hardware platforms and have a variety of models, as you can see in the below link:
Once installed successfully, you can access the following boards:
- Genuino UNO
- Genuino Mega 2560
- Genuino Mega 1280
- Genuino Mini
- Genuino Pro Mini
- Genuino Nano
Embedded Module Libraries
The embedded system libraries are highly useful for engineering students for projects related to the actuation, display, sensing, and communication of data. These libraries act like real components and help the students design real-time projects easily. Here is a list of the embedded libraries that you can download instantly:
There are multiple options to present the output of a circuit in an embedded system, but among these, an LCD is the most presentable and easy to understand. Proteus has multiple built-in libraries, but this LCD library provides the users with the best experience because it is easy to use and its pinouts are clean and easy to design. In the zip file, there are two versions of LCDs:
- LCD display (16x2)
- LCD display (20x4)
Both of these are extensively used in embedded circuits. Here is the download link for the new LCD:
This library can be easily programmed with Arduino code and hardware for embedded system projects. It is an alphanumeric LCD; therefore, it can show the numbers and alphabets based on the programming in the Arduino software.
The Global Positioning System library is a useful component that provides versatility in embedded systems. Real-time GPS systems use satellites in space to provide information about the position of a particular object. In Proteus, the GPS allows the user to design projects, such as testing the performance of real GPS-based projects or simulating projects where the position of an object like a vehicle or a person is to be identified. Here is the link to download and install the GPS library:
The design of this GPS system resembles the real GPS module. This library provides the system with two pins:
- TX pin
- RX pin
When the circuit is designed and the simulation starts, the module starts sending the NMEA data to the TX pin. At this moment, this data can be seen in the virtual environment connected to the GPS module. This is just a simulation module, so it does not provide clear longitude and latitude values. Therefore, there are some dummy values, but these are helpful to test the simulations.
The GSM module is used for communication between the devices within the GSM network. This library allows users to work on projects related to the positioning and communication between the devices. The working of this GSM module is controlled with the help of Arduino software, where it can be programmed according to the requirements. The Arduino has the IDE manager library to be programmed with this module. Here is the download link for this:
This library is designed in three colors and the user can choose any one or more than one according to the complexity of the project.
It is another communication module that is used for wireless communication and configuration. This is a trending topic for engineering projects; therefore, I have designed it. This does not work exactly like the real XBee, but it helps a lot to provide the basic functioning in the simulation. Here is the link to download this library:
This has two pins, TX and RX, and these are used to send and receive the data within XBee. The RX is usually connected to the output device, or Arduino, according to the circuit.
The Bluetooth library has been one of the most demanding components of embedded systems for years; therefore, I have designed this to make it easy for students to use in Proteus. These modules are used for Bluetooth connectivity. This is the zip file for the module:
This has two modules of Bluetooth, which are:
Both of these have a similar structure, but their work is a little bit different. These modules have a limited range; therefore, they do not work well where communication is required for long distances.
This library provides the functionality of a real-time clock (RTC). it is used in projects where the current time is required, so it is a clock in the circuit that can be programmed once and used throughout the project implementation. This is the download link for the zip file in this library:
Proteus has such libraries by default, but I have designed this library because it is more suitable for embedded projects and has different ways of working. The design is very similar to the real DS1307 library as it has a total of seven pins and a bright red colour with details on it. Out of these seven pins, X1 and X2 are used to add the crystal oscillator. This is used with devices like Arduino and PIC controllers.
L298 Motor Driver Library
The L298 motor driver is designed to accept standard TTL logic levels and to drive the inductive loads. It is a dual full bridge driver that can bear high voltage and high current. It can drive relays, solenoids, stepping motors, etc.
The module has been designed with bright colours and has small details just like the real driver. It is designed to control two motors at a time just like the real module. The link to download the zip file is given here:
Two sets of output pins are on the left and right sides used to connect the motors, while the input pins are at the lower right corner. Some other pins are also there to connect this module to the power source.
SIM900D in Proteus
The main purpose of the SIM900D module is to control the GSM module with the help of a microcontroller so make sure you install all of these. This library has multiple functions that help provide the functionality of sending and receiving SMS messages, setting up the calls, and managing the GPRS data. Here is the link to install and use the SIM900D:
It is relatively more complex than other experiments and requires more information about the component to work properly.
C945 Library for Proteus
The C945 is a transistor library and as you expect, it has three legs named emitter, collector, and base. The first letters of these pins are mentioned on the module, and one must know it is an NPN transistor. It is a general-purpose transistor and is the main component of several electronic components. The installation of this module can be done through the following link:
The simplest way to see the workings of this transistor is through the simplest output devices, such as an oscilloscope or LED.
PC817 Library for Proteus
It is a safety component used with the microcontrollers and prevents the burning of the microcontroller because of the back EMF. It is an optocoupler/optoisolator that is used for the isolation of signals in electronic circuits. It is an important safety component of multiple embedded systems. Here is the download source for this library:
Just like the real PC817, the library has four pins, but to indicate the difference and directions of the pins, I have shown the symbols, so you will see the design is different from the real PC817.
Embedded Sensors Libraries
Embedded sensors are devices that are used to interact with the physical world by sensing changes in the environment. The students can download multiple types of proteus sensors that are useful for creative engineering projects. These libraries have multiple pins; one is a TestPin through which the user can stimulate the sensor. Some of these are digital sensors, and some are analogue. We have made digital and analogue versions of sensors to provide more versatility in the student’s projects. These are the Version 1.0 of all the sensors:
The ultrasonic sensor is a device that measures distance with the help of sound waves. These send the sound waves in a particular direction and then measure the time it takes for them to strike any object, which is then reflected. The module is designed on the same principles. It is an analogue sensor, and usually, it is controlled with the help of a microcontroller. Here is the download and installation process:
This library allows the students to create more creative projects because it can be used for projects like proximity detection, distance measurement, liquid level measurements, etc.
Flame Sensor Library
Now we are moving towards the specialized sensors particularly important for the Internet of Things (IoT) projects. The flame sensor is a basic need for almost every project of home automation. This sensor provides the signal at the output when it senses the flame. As a result, it can alarm the users, and it may be lifesaving. With the help of this library, it is now possible to test the simulation of such projects in Proteus. Here is the link to download it:
During the simulation of the project, the indication of flame is done with the testPin and the sensor responds according to the signals at this testPin.
This sensor detects the vibration and is useful in projects like security management because any vibration in a particular object can be sensed well. These are also used with mechanical products such as heavy machines because the continuous vibration can cause errors in performance or create other issues. This is the link to get this library:
It is a digital sensor, and as soon as the input of this sensor is turned HIGH, it indicates the presence of the sensor.
Capacitive Touch Sensor
The capacitive touch sensor is named so because it can detect the presence of the human finger on an object by sensing the change in the capacitance of the sensor. We know that capacitance is the measure of the ability to save charges, and when the finger touches the sensor, the values of the capacitance change, and as a result, the sensor indicates this change. Here is the link to get this library:
I have made this digital sensor because, in real time, the capacitive sensor is very sensitive and can detect a slight change in the capacitance when the user touches it.
The purpose of these libraries is to enhance creativity and allow students to reach more domains. This is an important sensor in medical science because it counts the heartbeat of humans and provides the results. The starting and ending points of the heartbeat testing are controlled with the help of digital input. Here is the download and install link:
The output of this heartbeat sensor can be shown with the help of an LCD or other suitable output devices. Students can use this output in different components of the projects. As a result, the output of the sensor may be used to stimulate other components such as when the heartbeat is high. The results are sent to the user or a document that displays the preventive measures.
Gas Sensor Library
This is another ideal sensor library for projects like the automation of places. This module senses the presence of harmful gases in the surroundings and is one of the most important sensors for safe living standards. These are used in homes, offices, industries, and other places where there is a risk of gas leakage so they may indicate the danger. This library has a simple structure with all the basic pinouts. Here is the way to download and install the library.
I have designed eight sensors for gases ranging from MQ2 to MQ9 because I have followed real gas sensors. The design and working of each of them resemble those of real sensors, as you can see the colour and components are the same.
Magnetic Reed Switch
This library is particularly suitable for engineering students who have to create projects related to the magnetic field. This library is used to detect the presence of magnetic fields in the surrounding area. Magnetic fields affect the working of sensitive components; therefore, this library can save the whole circuit in some cases. To install this library, follow the link below:
Just like the real magnetic reed switch, it has two versions with red and blue colours. The real magnetic reeds have a difference in the number of pins, but I have designed them to work perfectly in the simulation and provided all the necessary features.
Infrared Sensor Library
The working principle of an infrared sensor is similar to that of an ultrasonic sensor, but here, infrared waves are used to detect any obstacle or object in the way of these waves. A transmitter and a receiver are used in the structure of these sensors. This is a digital library; therefore, there is no need to attach the Arduino to test the basic workings of this library. Check the details of the infrared library through the link given below:
This sensor can be used in various projects with a microcontroller because the coding process allows the student to use the output of this sensor for multiple processes.
IR Proximity Sensor
This is another sensor that uses the waves to measure the distance to the presence of the object at a particular distance. The transmitter sends the infrared radiations to a certain direction and when these strike an object, these reflect to the receiver and it measures the distance between the object and itself through multiple calculations. Here is the link to approach this sensor:
I have designed the same sensor in two colours and tried to make it easy to use. This is the digital sensor; therefore, the emission of infrared rays and their receiving time are controlled by the TestPin.
Infrared Tracker Sensor
This is another infrared sensor that does not simply sense the distance; it measures the movement. The infrared waves are emitted from the sensor when it touches the object; it remembers the values and emits the waves again. In this way, the multiple emissions of the waves and their reflected angles are measured and compared. As a result, it can measure the change in the position of the same objects. Here is the download and install process:
This is an important sensor that can be used in robotic line followers, security systems, gesture recognition, etc.
The automation of places like homes, agriculture, and security systems are important Internet of Things( IoT) projects, and this is one of the most basic sensors in all the projects related to the same princess. This is a digital sensor and can detect the presence or absence of rain. Here is the link to fetch this sensor:
The process to use this sensor in the projects is simple and easy, and students wanted to use it in their projects; therefore, I created this to provide them with more options in the Proteus simulation.
Sound Sensor Library
The sound sensor is one of the most basic sensors in embedded systems and other branches of engineering that catches sound signals and converts them into electrical signals. As a result, these electrical signals are then presented as the output of the sensor. Here is the link to download and install this library:
This sensor may be part of many interesting and trending engineering projects such as voice recognition, sound level measurement, robotics, etc.
Soil Moisture Sensor
This is the most basic sensor of the IoT projects related to agriculture, landscape, and related fields. This sensor measures the amount of water in the soil and indicates the values. The basic principle of working with this sensor is to measure the electrical conductivity of the soil because water is the best electrical conductor. As a result, it provides information about the amount of water in the soil. Here is the link to get this sensor:
There are multiple types of such sensors, and the one I designed has the exact design of a soil resistance measurement. It has two probes and is an analogue sensor; therefore, it provides the exact amount of moisture in the soil.
Analog Vibration Sensor
Just like the digital vibration sensor, this version also measures the vibration in an object, but I have tried to provide a more versatile working method; therefore, I made this analogue vibration sensor. The working of an analog vibration sensor is a little bit complex but it can be used with great versatility. Have a look at the installation process for this sensor:
Projects like musical systems, game controllers, robotics, and other such projects influence vibration. Students can easily design the limits of values using the microcontroller.
Water Sensor Library
The water sensor is the basic sensor in different engineering projects. Water has the best electrical conductivity, and this sensor works by measuring the electrical conductivity of the water. As a result, it provides the amount of water in a tank or any other container.
Students are using this sensor in different creative projects such as water leakage detection, pool level monitoring, automatic irrigation systems, etc.
Analogue PIR Sensor
It is the passive infrared sensor that detects the infrared radiation around it. The main job of this sensor is to sense the IR and then convert these signals into voltage. I have designed the digital PIR sensor as well, but this sensor has more functionalities. The following is the link to download and install this library:
It has applications in different fields and projects like security systems, motion detection systems, and multiple medical devices.
The flex sensor is used to measure the bend of an object and is useful in multiple fields of mechanical engineering. Another use of this sensor is in the field of robotics where it is used with multiple components and provides basic information about the bend. You can download and install it from the link below:
This is a digital library, and it simply checks for the presence of a bend in an object containing this sensor. The checking of the basic workings of this sensor does not require a microcontroller, but a simple LED is enough.
Analogue Flex Sensor
The analogue flex sensor is the second version I have just discussed. This can measure the values of a bend of the component, and it is important information in multiple projects. As a result, this sensor has great scope in multiple fields. Download and install this through the link below:
Just like other analogue sensors, students can provide the limits of the flex values and automate the project to work on a particular value of flex.
Magnetic Hall Effect Sensor
This sensor is used to measure the magnetic fields around the sensor. For this, it uses the Hall effect and successfully measures the density of the magnetic field. The basic sensor in this regard is KY-024 and it is used in multiple types of sensors related to the detection and measurement of the magnetic field. I have used the same sensor in this design; you can see it in the link given below:
This library is present in four different colors but the design and other specifications are the same.
This library is particularly useful for embedded systems and robotic projects that measure the total current flowing through the circuit. The electrical and electronic circuits use this module in their projects but require the module in Proteus to test the possibilities. Therefore, I have designed this library, and here is the link to use it in the Proteus simulations:
The drift linear hall sensor in the real current sensor WCS1600 allows it to provide precise and accurate results. In this sensor, I have used the same design and worked to provide the best output.
pH Sensor Library
The chemical properties of the liquid are important to know when dealing with liquid experiments. Therefore, I decided to create a pH level sensor in Proteus to provide the chance to enhance the domain of projects for engineering students. As it is a simulation, the input will be provided by the user, but this can be designed as a project to show the results on the output device. Here is the download and installation process for this library:
This file has four versions of the pH levels with different colours. A potentiometer has to be connected to the pH sensor, and the programming through the microcontroller will allow you to set the range between 0 and 14 pH levels. This library works the same as the real pH meter and can be used to create a simulation of checking the pH of any liquid project.
Power Module Libraries
The power electronic systems use multiple power modules to complete their circuits, and we have designed these sensors to complete and test the simulations. All the basic features of real-time power modules and their connection with other components are possible with these libraries. Here is the introduction to each module and their download manuals:
Solar Panel Library
The solar panel is one of the most trending sensors because students are moving towards renewable energy sources, and the solar panel is the need of the time. This library can provide the chance to convert the electrical generation components into solar panels and make the project modern. The download and installation process is mentioned in the link below:
Just like the revolution made in the electrical industry with solar panels, this module has changed the trends in electrical and electronic projects for engineers.
Lipo Battery Library
Lipo stands for lithium polymer battery, and it has the same workings as the batteries in Porteus but has a different basic structure. The real-time lip batteries are made with lithium-ion technology using a polymer electrolyte and are different from the liquid electrolyte batteries. Click the below link to download and install this library
Real-time lipo batteries have multiple advantages over normal batteries, such as high specific energy, low self-discharge rate, etc.
Single Cell Battery
Single-cell batteries are one of the most common sources of portable batteries, and they are used for small electronic projects. Proteus has multiple types of batteries, but these libraries have a better representation of the cells and a better output. Here is the link to check out these batteries:
These designs make the circuit more presentable. The default setting allows these batteries to run on 3.7V, but students can change the voltage level through the properties of these batteries.
CR2023 Lithium Coin Library
It is a lithium coin battery, and we have seen it in several small electronic projects, such as watches, calculators, and several wearable devices. The real CR2023 comes in different shades of silver. I have created three versions of this battery. You can see these at the link given next:
It has a simple cell, a cell with silver casting and lead, and a cell with golden casting and leads. This provides the students with a chance to enhance the attraction of the project and get to know the workings of the cell at the same time.
The embedded system requires a lot of components, and we have designed the basic and useful libraries for the engineering students so that they may design and practice real-time simulations of their circuits. These are the first versions of all the sensors, but the team is working on more improvements and functions according to feedback and trying to bring more libraries for you. We will discuss these soon; till then, happy learning.
