Roboplan created the desktop application Circuito.io for beginners to have a step-by-step guide to building their own electronics projects

Not everyone went to school to get a degree in electrical engineering, and the idea of taking on a project involving a circuit board can seem daunting. This is why technology company Roboplan created a desktop application called Circuito.io. The app guides a user through working with circuit board, coding it and figuring out if the project contains any bugs.

Users start out on a page with five different indicators and a list of components on the left side. The indicators represent what sort of components someone wants to use in their project. The app starts with a standard circuit board and wall power cable, but both can be transferred out if the user prefers working with different models. Roboplan.io continues to add components to their list and accepts requests from the public to include new ones.

From there, a user drags and drops in the components they want to use in their project. These get labeled as input and outputs, including LCD displays, joysticks, temperature sensors and more. A user chooses everything they want to use and finishes by hitting the ‘generate’ button at the bottom.

Circuito.io takes a little time to put all of the components together, notifying the user via their email once it is completed. The app then creates a shopping list for the project that shows everything a user needs to buy outside of the website. After the user gathers these items, they can return to Circuito.io and follow a step-by-step guide to put the parts together. A guide starts with a simple BreadBoard for the circuits and works its way down gradually using all of the parts. The guide offers special tips for some components that the user should remain aware of while they work.

 

After a user finishes building, they can plug their project into their computer and download a sample code from Circuito.io to test the components and ensure they work properly. Should a user run into an error while running these tests, they can follow a step-by-step guide to figure out which component caused the issue. By the end, if a user feels they need to add one or two more things to what they’re working on, they can return to the starting page and add other components to augment the build.

Circuito.io makes it a great starting point for aspiring electrical enthusiast and those who want to see code in action; however, the website does not teach these things from scratch. Users must have an idea of what the type of project they want to make and what components they want to use.

Roboplan made Circuito.io free for everyone to use and experiment.
