Curated list of awesome Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) for electrical engineering

User foadsf on Reddit has compiled an awesome list of free and open source (FOSS) resources for Electrical Engineering which includes:

1. Electronic design automation (EDA) suites
1.1. Placement and routing (PnR)
1.2. Circuit diagram
1.3. Design rule checking (DRC)
2. Simulation
2.1. Integrated MCU-analogue
2.2. General purpose
2.3. Analog
3. IC design and simulation programming
4. Microcontroller programming
4.2. Compilers
4.3. High level languages
4.4. Editors and IDE
5. Other lists

Our favorites made the list including Fritzing, KiCAD, MicroPython, and CircuitPython.

They are looking for volunteers to help with the list. Check out this Reddit post for more information.

And foadsf has also created a lists of awesome CAD and CAM/CNC FOSS for mechanical engineering.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
