Proteus is simulation and PCB designing software. Many times we need to simulate different circuits before we actually develop it, This tutorial shows how to add library in Proteus 7 and Proteus 8.
Following are the simple steps to add Library in Proteus
Step 1: Download Proteus library zip file example ARDUINO Proteus library
Step 2: Unzip library folder. You will see two files names as *.IDX and *.LIB in some cases third file is *.HEX.
In our example it is ARDUINO.IDX and ARDUINO.LIB
Step 3: Copy and paste these files in LIBRARY folder of Proteus
If you are using Proteus 7 Professional, then the library folder link will be something like this: “C:\Program Files (x86)\Labcenter Electronics\Proteus 7 Professional\LIBRARY“
If you are using Proteus 8 Professional, then the library folder link will be something like this: “C:\Program Files\Labcenter Electronics\Proteus 8 Professional\Data\LIBRARY”
Step 4: Close Proteus Software and reopen it to check it. That’s all.
You can find that adding library to Proteus, Arduino, Eagle is same just copy and paste the library files at proper location.
