NI Multisim is an intuitive schematic capture and SPICE simulation circuit teaching environment. With specific Multisim features designed for the educator to foster learning and guide student exploration of circuit concepts, you can provide your students with an interactive environment to visualize circuit behavior with powerful simulation and analysis while abstracting the complexity of SPICE syntax. Learn about instrumentation and troubleshooting using simulation-driven instruments and hidden faults, and develop intuition by having students explore “what if” scenarios with interactive components and advance simulation.
NI Ultiboard offers flexible tools optimized for precise control to efficiently design a PCB. Integration with Multisim helps students easily transfer schematics to export completed designs to industry-standard formats such as Gerber to fabricate a prototype.
The NI Circuit Design Suite provides a complete approach to teaching circuits and electronics by integrating circuit capture, simulation, and layout into a package including Multisim and Ultiboard.
Multisim academic licensing features flexible licensing options to meet changing application requirements from classrooms to advanced research. Discover how Multisim software licensing is designed to fit the needs of the educator, researcher, and student.
With Multisim and NI hardware, the educator can take theory from the classroom into the laboratory for hands-on learning. The integration between Multisim and the NI Educational Laboratory Virtual Instrumentation Suite II/II+ (NI ELVIS II/II+), an educational design and prototyping hardware platform based on NI LabVIEW software, makes the comparison of simulated signals with measured real-world signals easier. With a single mouse click, students can toggle between simulated and actual measurements from NI ELVIS II prototyping hardware using NI ELVIS II instruments built into the Multisim software environment.
