National Instruments is releasing Multisim 11, the latest version of its circuit simulation software, with specialised editions for both professional circuit design and hands-on learning. The easy-to-use Multisim software takes a graphical approach that abstracts the complexities of traditional circuit simulation, thereby helping engineers, teachers and students to employ advanced circuit analysis technology.
NI Multisim for Professionals helps engineers optimise circuit designs, minimise errors and reduce prototype iterations. When combined with the new NI Ultiboard 11 layout and routing software, Multisim provides a cost-effective, end-to-end prototyping platform. Its integration with NI LabVIEW measurement software also helps engineers define custom analyses to improve design validation.
NI Multisim for Educators, the academic edition, incorporates specialised teaching features and is complemented by circuits textbooks and courseware. This integrated system helps teachers to engage students and reinforce circuit theory with an interactive, hands-on approach to investigating circuit behaviour. Widely implemented throughout academia, Multisim is chosen by technical colleges and four-year universities for its interactive components, simulation-driven instruments and integration to real-world analogue and digital measurements.
Key benefits of Multisim 11 include the following:
Multisim 11 Professional
- Simulate better with SPICE parser improvements, updated BSIM models, support for advanced parameters and enhanced digital simulation accuracy
- Prototype easier and ensure design synchronisation and transparency with enhanced forward/backward annotation from the Multisim schematic to an Ultiboard layout
- Improve design communication with on-page connectors and a new WYSIWYG net naming system
Multisim 11 Academic
- Simplify digital circuits teaching by exporting raw VHDL from a programmable logic device (PLD) schematic
- Guide hands-on electronics experiments with new educator-requested AC single-frequency analysis
- Correlate simulated data with real-world measurements by integrating with the NI Electronic Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Suite (NI ELVIS) educational prototyping platform
