Hello friends, hope you all are fine and enjoying life, today’s post is asked by one of our readers on our facebook page so I thought to share it with all of you. Arduino is a modern microcontroller board, which has now become very popular among engineers but one problem with Arduino is that there’s no virtual tool to test its coding. So, if you need to test the coding then you have to buy the hardware. But it’s not the case anymore, now you can test the Arduino coding via Proteus quite easily as its library has been developed.
So today, we will have a look on how to test the working of Arduino coding in Proteus. In order to test the coding in Proteus, we need hex file of the program so we will also see how to get the hex file of Arduino. So first of I will provide the download link for Arduino Library and how to add it in Proteus and then we will have a look on how to get the hex file of Arduino sketch which is a little difficult section and finally we will have look on how to upload the hex file into Proteus and get a working simulation.
If you also want any tutorial, then send us your request and we will try our best to post it as soon as we can. Let’s start today’s tutorial.
First of all, download the Arduino Library for Proteus by clicking the below link.

Unzip the folder, you will find two files in it named as ARDUINO.LIB and ARDUINO.IDX
Now place both of these files at this location C:\Program Files (x86)\Labcenter Electronics\Proteus 7 Professional\LIBRARY i.e. in the library folder of Proteus software.

- If you are using Proteus 8 then the Library folder will be within the Data folder and the link to your folder will be something like that C:\ProgramData\Labcenter Electronics\Proteus 8 Professional\Data\LIBRARY
