Mouser contributes SPICE simulator to MultiSIM PC Board tool
The most up-to-date MultiSIM BLUE version of the NI Multisim circuit board design software that is available from Mouser Electronics is the Premium version comes with a Berkley SPICE simulation environment.
Related to SPICE
SPICE (Simulation Program with Integrated Circuit Emphasis) is a general-purpose, open source analogue electronic circuit emulator. It is a application utilized in integrated circuit(IC) and board-level design to check the integrity of circuit card designs and to foresee circuit actions.
This can be used to design and simulate circuits in advance of laying them out in actual prototypes.
As well as to assist in organising schematics, hierarchica design features have been included consequently engineers can incorporate classification blocks in place of a circuit and then do it again in other sections of the design in order to save time.
The fresh Premium version likewise has forward and backward annotation functions, permitting engineers to transfer modifications from a schematic to a printed circuit board layout environment or from layout to schematic.
Mouser Electronics continues to provide the MultiSIM BLUE free electronic circuit board design software tool, brought to life by National Instruments, for a couple years.
The NI MultiSim Component Evaluator by Mouser employs the Berkeley SPICE simulator engine and includes a pre-installed component library coming from the distributor’s linecard.
MultiSIM BLUE can handle pre-layout design convergence analysis and mixed-signal emulating, and will be able to work with components as complicated as BGAs with greater than 1,000 pins on-pin-pitches as small as 0.8 mm.
The program additionally brings a 3D visualization of the printed circuit board devoid of restrictions on the size and shape of the PCB. The circuit card layout attribute makes it possible for as many as 64 layers, and is suitable for standard output file forms such as Gerber 274X and 274D, DXF, 3D DXF, 3D IGES as well as IPC-D-356A Netlist for easy design output and confirmation.
The Mouser online community provides the engineer with instructions, downloads, video lessons and consumer online forums.
