Software for circuit simulation
Computers are increasingly used to analyse electronic circuits. Today's simulation programs are so good that electronics designers can be 95% sure about the behaviour of almost any circuit, without having to make a single solder joint. Moreover, simulation is not limited to just the circuit diagram. Having designed the printed circuit board, for example, you may even run a simulation to check the effect of copper tracks on the board.
