hi Tom,

looks nice !
But probably completely written in Java ?
However, people who can handle this kind of complex circuits, can do without such a simulation :-(
But still I see a good practical use of it, for educational and debugging purposes,
if you would implement one of those small micro-controllers (e.g. PIC).
