Supported OS: Windows, Linux

License: Freeware

Logisim is an educational tool for designing and simulating digital logic circuits. With its simple toolbar interface and simulation of circuits as you build them, it is simple enough to facilitate learning the most basic concepts related to logic circuits.

3. FreeMat

Download Link: http://sourceforge.net/projects/freemat/files/latest/download?source=files

Supported OS: Windows, Linux

License: GPL

FreeMat is a free environment for rapid engineering and scientific prototyping and data processing. It is similar to commercial systems such as MATLAB from Mathworks, and IDL from Research Systems, but is Open Source. FreeMat is available under the GPL license.

4. Logic Gate Simulator
