VirtualBreadboard is specifically designed for Breadboard integrated circuits and is able to function as a microcontroller development environment.
Since it is designed to work for Breadboard form-factor circuits, the name of the application is kept that way. However, it also serves the purpose of a range of other usages including: developing and debugging of microcontrollers, programming control panels for apps that are embedded, circuit emulation, developing documentation for these circuits, etc.
It has to be kept in mind that VirtualBreadboard is not designed to resolve circuit related problems because it is not a circuit analyzer. Having said that, it cannot provide SPICE simulations.
VirtualBreadboard is powerful and a very reliable suite with a user friendly interface. It has a rich collection of circuit templates. Below are some of the popular templates that it contains from a range of many:
You can either opt for a new project or choose any of the existing predefined templates, VirtualBreadboard allows you to personalize your selection with a range of components, function generations, LED and LC display features, and timers.
The most amazing feature is the error log is displayed right in the front for you to have a constant look so you may know exactly when and what goes wrong during emulating the circuit. At TTL levels, it also gives you the leverage of using terminal component in order to send UART.
The VirtualBreadboard software runs on:
There are two main editions of VirtualBreadboard namely, VBB Classic and VBB4Arduino. The Classic version begins with the basic level of understanding microcontroller codes. There are different modules to this edition. On the other hand, the VBB4Arduino edition allows users to learn and get their hands on physical computing. It is a student edition and constitutes features for experimenting students who are working on Arduino experiments.
In Windows Store, it was released as Windows App 5.44 on August 4, 2016. However, its starter editions were released in April 2015. This caught a lot of attention of students and teachers. However, recently in March 2017 the developer has fixed several existing bugs and has also fixed licensing errors.

Rebranded VBB Classic to VBB Desktop version
VBB Desktop is in maintenence 'stable' mode only no futher features will be added only critical bugs will be fixed
All individual licenses have been merged into a single virtualbreadboard.io logon
All previous Classic licenses have been upgraded to the single VBB Desktop license
VBB Desktop available for sale as a single product lifetime license
All research and non-working features have been removed
Includes useful Bug fixes to the AVR model including timing and I2C
