Step 1: Download Proteus 8.9 Professional
You can download Proteus 8.9 Professional from the official website of Labcenter Electronics[^2^]. You will need to register for a free account and request a trial license to use the software. Alternatively, you can download Proteus 8.9 Professional from Google Drive[^1^], but you will need a license key to activate it.
After downloading the software, you need to extract the zip file and run the setup.exe file. Follow the instructions on the screen to install Proteus 8.9 Professional on your computer. You will need to enter your license key or activate your trial license during the installation process.
Step 3: Download All Arduino Libraries
To use Arduino components in Proteus 8.9 Professional, you need to download all Arduino libraries from Ettron[^3^]. You will find a zip file containing various Arduino libraries for different models and shields. You need to extract the zip file and copy the folders inside it to the LIBRARY folder of Proteus 8.9 Professional, which is usually located at C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Labcenter Electronics\\Proteus 8 Professional\\LIBRARY.
Step 4: Use Proteus 8.9 Professional with Arduino
Now you are ready to use Proteus 8.9 Professional with Arduino. You can launch the software and create a new project. You will see a list of available components on the left side of the screen. You can search for Arduino components by typing \"Arduino\" in the search box. You can drag and drop the Arduino components to the schematic editor and connect them with wires and other components.
To simulate your circuit, you need to write or import an Arduino code for your project. You can use the built-in code editor of Proteus 8.9 Professional or use an external IDE such as Arduino IDE or Visual Studio Code. You need to save your code as a hex file and load it to the Arduino component in Proteus 8.9 Professional by double-clicking on it and browsing for the hex file.
After loading your code, you can click on the play button at the bottom of the screen to start the simulation. You will see your circuit working as if it was connected to a real Arduino board. You can also use virtual instruments such as oscilloscope, multimeter, logic analyzer, etc., to measure and analyze your circuit.
Proteus 8.9 Professional is a great tool for designing and simulating electronic circuits with Arduino components. It can help you test your ideas and debug your code before building your physical prototype.
