LogicWorks 5 for Windows
What is LogicWorks 5?
LogicWorks is an interactive circuit design tool intended for teaching and learning digital logic. No other software tool makes digital design easier, faster or more interactive than LogicWorks. The package gives you the power, speed and flexibility to create and test an unlimited number of circuit elements on-screen. This means that you can study advanced concepts much more quickly and clearly using on-screen simulation than you can by spending time wiring up expensive and damage-prone parts in a lab. LogicWorks is so easy to use that students will be creating and testing circuits in a matter of minutes, instead of spending precious lab time just getting started.
Now with VHDL!
PLEASE NOTE: This feature is not available in the Macintosh version. New in LogicWorks 5 for Windows is the ability to use a subset of the standard VHDL language to describe and simulate circuits. Hardware designs can freely mix devices and circuits described as schematic diagrams with blocks described textually using VHDL. See our VHDL page for a description of the language implementation in this version.
Full Schematic Editing
LogicWorks includes a full schematic editor with bussing, multilevel Undo/Redo, interactive connection tracing, and many other powerful features. This is coupled with the unique, interactive digital simulator. Changes made to signal connections or device parameters on the screen are immediately reflected in the timing waveforms and probes placed right on the diagram.
Upwardly Compatible to DesignWorks
LogicWorks is upwardly compatible with our professional package, DesignWorks. This means that students can use their own copy of LogicWorks on their Windows-based or Macintosh home computer and then bring designs in to the more powerful DesignWorks package in the lab for integration, analysis and testing.
How do I buy LogicWorks?
Windows Version: LogicWorks for Windows is sold exclusively by Prentice Hall Publishing, we do not sell it directly. It can be purchased online through amazon.com or through bookstores. Macintosh Version: LogicWorks for Macintosh can be purchased from Apple's App Store. Please note that the current version of LogicWorks for Macintosh is 4.6 and does not include the VHDL features described above.
