ViPEC Network Analyzer
The output is in the form of port parameters (S, Y or Z) with results presented on a user defined grid, Smithchart or table. It can also be used to compute other characteristics like stability factors and group delay.
ViPEC supports various lumped elements (capacitors, resistors etc.) as well as distributed networks like transmission lines, microstrip and stripline structures. Two port data files are also supported (e.g. the 2-port frequency parameters of various RF transistors as supplied by the manufacturer). The component library is under constant development with new elements added at regular intervals.

Logisim -Simulate Digital Logic Circuits
With the capacity to build larger circuits from smaller subcircuits, and to draw bundles of wires with a single mouse drag, Logisim can be used (and is used) to design and simulate entire CPUs for educational purposes.
- The wiring tool draws horizontal and vertical wires, automatically connecting to components and to other wires. It's very easy to draw circuits!
- Circuit layouts can be used as "subcircuits" of other circuits, allowing for hierarchical circuit design.
- Included circuit components include inputs and outputs, gates, multiplexers, arithmetic circuits, flip-flops, and RAM memory.
- The included "combinational analysis" module allows for conversion between circuits, truth tables, and Boolean expressions.

Embedded Development using VisSim - Visual Solutions
"VisSim is a block diagram language for creating complex nonlinear dynamic systems. To create a model, simply drag blocks in the workspace and connect them with wires. Then click the Go button to initiate your simulation. The response is instantaneous."
"VisSim's tightly integrated development platform makes it easy to pass freely among the stages of model construction, simulation, optimization, and validation. This means you can create virtual prototypes on your desktop and make sure they're working properly before committing to the design."
VisSim - Digital Power Designer
VisSim/Digital Power Designer provides high level blocks for simulation and code generation of power supply and digital power components and controls. VisSim/Digital Power Designer blocks let you develop a working controller which can be directly downloaded to the MCU for digital power applications.

Quick and Dirty Wings3D Part Creation for KiCAD 3D Viewer
This quick and dirty Wings3D creation micro-tutorial covers creating a 3D part in Wings3D and exporting that part to KiCAD.
Jon's Place: Custom MicroPython Board
"KiCad can also show you a 3D rendering of what your board would look like, but you have to supply 3D models of any custom parts you include. My board has a whole pile of parts that I had to create my own footprint for (usb connector, uSD connector, all the Hirose DF-13 2, 3, 4, and 6-pin connectors, etc)."

A Schematic Editor with Active Simulator oriented towards RF and Communication Circuits. Good support for Power Electronic Devices and Circuits like IGBT and Mosfet.
"The multi-page hierarchical schematic editor makes it easy to sketch a circuit. Once a circuit is created, you can do a transient, AC, DC, transfer function, sensitivity, or distortion with a simple command."
Micro-Cap 10 is an integrated schematic editor and mixed analog/digital simulator that provides an interactive sketch and simulate environment for electronics engineers.
Animation lets objects change their display or respond to user clicks during a simulation. In this mode, a single analysis time step is taken and the schematic displays and animate devices are updated on the schematic. The animation components can also be used in a Dynamic DC analysis.
