Hi! This is a very special edition of the NerdKits Newsletter, which we publish to keep you up to date on everything that is going on at NerdKits.

The NerdKits team is proud to announce the release of CircuitLab, the first web-based circuit simulator with the power and accuracy needed for board-level design tasks. CircuitLab is now available at:

CircuitLab makes sketching circuits as easy as sketching on a piece of paper, produces beautiful PNG and PDF schematics, and allows you to simulate your circuit right in your browser to see how it would work in real life! You can then tweak, design, test, and iterate -- all in one tool, all in your web browser, before even going to a breadboard.

Circuits that are made public in CircuitLab can be shared by simply copy & pasting a URL, so with a few clicks you can link someone from a forum to your CircuitLab circuit to get some feedback. That person can then open your circuit, try it out, learn from it, and possibly tweak things and post it right back. This should enable a flavor of online learning and collaboration that has not been possible with circuits until now.

We hope CircuitLab is going to become a great educational resource to beginners in the DIY Electronics space, as well as a great tool for veterans to rapidly tinker and develop with as they become more comfortable with more advanced circuits.

You can try out CircuitLab at:

which is now available to the electronics community at large. Make sure to watch the "Getting Started" video on the homepage, or check out some example circuits:

We look forward to seeing the entire NerdKits community use CircuitLab to design their circuits, both on our forums and on other communities on the web.

Thank you as always for being such great customers. Make sure you tell your friends and neighbors about CircuitLab and NerdKits so we can keep the world's DIY spirit alive!

Best wishes,

Humberto & Mike
NerdKits, L.L.C.
