The circuit simulator applet allows the user to virtually build and a test an infinite number of circuit configurations. The user then can get a reading of the values of voltage and current of each element in the circuit by simply position the cursor over the element. A menu on the top left provides access to a wealth of pre-configured circuits as well an export feature to save your work. The topics range from simple resistive circuits to 555 timer and logic circuits.

Please note that this resource requires Java Applet Plug-in.

I like this simulator so much and use it so often that I've cloned it at my website in honor and appreciation and to congregate a few examples of negative resistance along with a few others which were attempts at achieving this feat.
