    Hi Pro,

    I'm a newbie in Embedded Systems and Microcontrollers. Now, I want to find the MCU simulator tool for Mac OS to learn & practice. Could anyone please show me the best MCU simulator tools on Mac OS?

    Thanks in advance!

    Thank Mr DickCappels for your information. I'll use VirtualBox to run the simulator on Mac OS :)

    Easy:

    1) run a virtual machine from within MacOS;
    2) install a copy of windows into that virtual machine;
    3) run windows and then install your simulation program.

    By now, you should realize why commercial simulators are hard to find on macos.

    I don't know what kind of simulator you need.

    Microchip has a development environment - MPLAB X, which includes simulators for all their MCUs. It's a huge download. They have a version which works on Mac OS X.

    Go to http://www.microchip.com/mplab/mplab-x-ide
