Mouser contributes SPICE simulator to MultiSIM Printed Circuit Board tool
The newest MultiSIM BLUE version of the NI Multisim PC board design software tool which is provided by Mouser Electronics is the High grade version contains a Berkley SPICE simulation environment.
Related to SPICE
SPICE (Simulation Program with Integrated Circuit Emphasis) is a general-purpose, open source analogue electronic circuit simulator. It is a software utilized in integrated circuit(IC) and board-level design to check out the integrity of circuit board designs and to foresee circuit actions.
This can be used to design and simulate circuits in advance of laying them out in actual physical prototypes.
As well as to assist in setting up schematics, hierarchica design functionality are already included so engineers will be able to incorporate classification blocks in place of a circuit and then repeat it in other parts of the design to avoid wasting time frame.
The fresh Advanced version likewise has backward and forward annotation abilities, making it possible for engineers to move modifications from a schematic to a PCB layout environment or from layout to schematic.
Mouser Electronics has been providing the MultiSIM BLUE no-cost printed circuit board design program, developed by National Instruments, for a couple years.
The NI MultiSim Component Evaluator by Mouser takes advantage of the Berkeley SPICE simulation engine and comes with a pre-installed component library coming from the distributor’s linecard.
MultiSIM BLUE holds up pre-layout design convergence analysis and mixed-signal emulating, and will be able to tackle electronic components as intricate as BGAs with more than 1,000 pins on-pin-pitches as small as 0.8 mm.
The software program furthermore presents a 3D visualization of the PCB without limits on the size and shape of the PCB board. The electronic circuit board layout function allows as many as 64 layers, and is also appropriate for standard output file types which include Gerber 274X and 274D, DXF, 3D DXF, 3D IGES and even IPC-D-356A Netlist for easy design output and verification.
The Mouser community provides the engineer with documents, downloads, educational videos and subscriber forums.
