Good day! I hope this is the correct place to post my suggestion, if not please move it. This is a very good idea that will help both us developers and KiCad.
Currently KiCad is one of the leaders on the market, because its quality is high and its free. Also it supports all operating systems.
I had to setup a few development environments lately and it was necessary to find a good simulator for Microchip devices(PIC16, PIC18 and etc), this prooved to be very hard. It seems the only ones are GPSIM, PicSimLab and Proteus. GPSIM and PicSimLab are not so good, because they are hard to setup or do not provide the functions we need, making Proteus the only real simulator for such devices, but its prices are extremely high.
Don’t be fooled by the 200 Euro option, there is no such option really.
If KiCad makes a sofware with wich we can easily view our device and debug it, this will make you even more popular.
I know that currently NGSPICE is under development, so please consider my idea. To be able to build a virtual board on which to just load the hex file and observe will my device work, including the LCD and others is what we need.
