PICAXE Electronic Bread Board Layout Emulator (PEBBLE) is a free, open source breadboard layout tool developed by the PICAXE community (many thanks to 'WestAust55') for the graphical representation of PICAXE Circuit breadboard layouts.
PEBBLE will work in most modern browsers. See the PICAXE forum thread for more details about using PEBBLE.

3.1e 29 October 2016 Fixed problem where Load/Save function failed when 1-span wire links were included. Added 90 degree bends to the 1-Spare wire links range to improve routing flexibility. Expanded the localisation translations for Czech and Spanish languages Included notes on how to add a new breadboard (in the Support folder) Included notes on how to add a new component (in the Support folder) 3.1d 5 Sept 2016 Split the "ProtoBrd" group into two - One for 1-Span wire lines and second for strip cuts and other edits Added a new "Floating" group similar to the "Notes" which can hold components/items that will not be locked to the grid for positioning Some icons on the floating menu re-positioned 3.1c 24 Aug 2016 Fixed bug where some terminal group items did not show the correct image on first selection if user selected wrong # of pins (but would on re-entering properties window) Fixed bug where selection area for IC's extended 1 row below the bottom of the image Added 0.0 Ohm resistor option and altered gold band shading (so less like yellow) for values < 1.0 Ohms Added vertical stereo programming sockets suitable for soldering to end of strip boards Modified the new Strip/Prototyping board parts/edits ("ProtoBrd" group) dialog box to provide added selections for 1-span pre-defined links. Added under the "ProtoBrd" group: - Three variants of insulated 1-span cross over wires with various wire colour options - A 2-hole wide x 10 hole high blank mask for use primarily at left side of strip boards as off-board area - A 2-hole high x 6 hole wide blank mask for use primarily at top side of strip boards as off-board area - Options for bare and insulated 1-span wire links originating from a hole with and without small spot-face cut - 1-Span wires can now go in any one of 16 nominal directions from any hole - 1-Span offset wire links can now be placed to left or right and above/below relative any row of holes 3.1b 16 Aug 2016 Fixed bug for wires where a copied wire did not copy across all the parameters for insulated wire ends Fixed bug to correctly display the AXE029 module when selected for the 28/40 pin PICAXE parts Localisation file for Castellano (Spanish) included (courtesy of PICAXE forum member Sedeap) Increased the range of permissible sizes for the General Strip board. Now 6 to 50 holes wide and 10 to 71 holes high. Added Datak 12-600B Proto-Board Added LV8549MC SOIC Dual H-Bridge (suit smaller stepper motors and simple motor controllers) Added two new transistor orientations with the legs all vertically orientated (best for strip/proto board work) Added two new sizes to Notes as "Micro Tag" and "Medium Note" Added vertical boxed 2 row 5-way headers (as often used with ribbon cable IDC type connectors/sockets) to terminal group Added spring terminals having 2.54mm centres with 2 to 10 way options Added spring terminals having 5.0 mm centres with 2 and 3 way options (seemingly not available in larger sizes) Added standard PICAXE stereo type programming socket with socket to left and right (for strip board projects) Added single LiPo AA battery cells in horizontal and vertical orientations (positive to left / up) Added components to the new "ProtoBrd" Group: Added new "Group" on the floating menu for Strip/Prototyping board parts/edits ("ProtoBrd" group) - Inter-hole track cut - Small spot face cut over hole - Large spot face cut over hole - Resistor (bare) lead extension for horizontal and vertical resistors - Small spot/dot (red colour) to indicate when a hole is blocked/occupied from reverse side - Added 6mm Pan-head bolt in horizontal and vertical orientation as dummy AA cell positive terminal - Bare wire link orientated straight N-S - Bare wire link orientated straight NE-SW - Bare wire link orientated straight E-W - Bare wire link orientated straight NW-SE - Bare wire segment aligned straight N-S and offset between holes - Bare wire segment aligned straight E-W and offset between holes - Bare wire link orientated NE from hole and then bent up - Bare wire link orientated NE from hole and then bent right - Bare wire link orientated SE from hole and then bent right - Bare wire link orientated SE from hole and then bent down - Bare wire link orientated SW from hole and then bent down - Bare wire link orientated SW from hole and then down left - Bare wire link orientated NW from hole and then bent left - Bare wire link orientated NW from hole and then down up - Moved the "X" symbol for track cut from "Miscellaneous" group to the "ProtoBrd" group (deprecated in Miscellaneous group - no longer in menu list but still works from old project saves/listings) 3.1a 01 Jan 2014 Added 20 x 10 "Finger Proto-Board Added MAX7219 8-digit 7-seg LED driver Added PT6961 6-dig 12-seg LED driver Added WS2801 3-Channel LED driver Added WS2803 18-Channel LED driver (DIP and SOP formats) Added Radio Shack 276-159 Breakout Board - as a component under the miscellaneous (LDR) group 3.1 27 Aug 2011 Added code to permit language localisation with auto locale detection - user may need to add their language file localisation file for Czech included localisation file for French (Francais) included Added PICAXE 08M2 Added PICAXE 14M2 Added PICAXE 20M2 Added 74HC138 - 3 to 8 Decoder with Active Low outputs Added 74HC238 - 3 to 8 Decoder with Active High outputs 3.0i 6 Feb 2011 Added 74HC4051 8-channel Analogue Switch IC == CD4051 Added 74HC4052 Dual 2-channel Analogue Switch IC == CD4052 Added 74HC4051 Triple 2-channel Analogue Switch IC == CD4053 Added SY4090 MOS Relay HFS2 series in DIP6 package to IC group Added ceramic capacitor selection to capacitor range 3.0h 27 Dec 2010 Corrected outline for SAA1064 to be 0.6 inch wide (not 0.3 inch wide) Added Speakjet - the Magnevation speech and sound synthesiser chip Added an "NC" image under misc component set for No Connection indication Added small tactile momentary switch under the DIP Switch group Added large tactile momentary switch under the DIP Switch group Added Jaycar HP9556 Mini Proto Board Added Jaycar HP9558 Large Proto Board Added Jaycar HP9540 Small Strip Board 95 x 76 mm Added Jaycar HP9540 Small Strip Board 95 x 152 mm Added Jaycar HP9540 Small Strip Board 95 x 303 mm 2.5 15 January 2010 Added 25mm high single digit 7-segment LED display in DIP IC group Added 20mm high dual digit 7-segment LED display in DIP IC group Added 9mm high quad digit 7-segment LED display in DIP IC group Altered code to add a new selector so that an off-board component area can be turned On or OFF above the breadboard. Code is backward compatible and will still accept old component lists without the selector - gives no top area Altered program code so that breadboard images only load as required/used.

Added DIP switches in 2 to 9 switch modules and Hex rotary switch Added a range of SIL modules. 1.1 9 June 2009 Improved text colour for capacitors changed to black and alignment relative to image. Axial capacitors have had the polarity band toned down so text more easily read. Diodes now have blue text for the orange glass type diodes, white text for black body diodes in horizontal orientation and grey text for black body diodes in vertical orientation for ease of reading. Added switches in push button, and toggle (SPST and SPDT) formats each with 4 different selectable sets of wire colours. Provision for a label in black text over the switches included. (just leave the label detail in the drop down window blank when no label wanted) Started on terminals which will include SIL modules. Menu structure is there along will the coding but no terminal strips or SIL modules as yet. The PICAXE (stereo) programming socket is already there 1.0 5 June 2009 First release of PEBBLE
