Learning embedded system design, simulation and implementation opens a new paradigm in developing practical laboratory experiments for embedded based systems. This paper showcases method of learning system circuit design with the use of simulation computer aided design tools like proteus virtual system modelling (PVSM), multism and Tiny CAD. In order to demonstrate this procedure on how virtual microcontroller-based circuit experiments were carried out in the laboratory, PIC16F887 chip was used as the major logic component. Several practical on hands-experiment were demonstrated with the aid of PVSM, and the result of each experiment performed were displayed with snapshot. Although, the intent of this paper is to put forward a technical approach for learning and engaged students in practices, expert in the progression of learning embedded system courses. This hands-on experiment will be an added advantage besides the class room teaching of students, and allows hobbyist, professional scientist and engineers to design and analyze the system design before building a prototype on learning breadboard and before ever making final packaging.
