Mouser includes SPICE simulation to MultiSIM Circuit Board program
The newest MultiSIM BLUE version of the NI Multisim PWB design tool that is provided by Mouser Electronics is the Advanced version contains a Berkley SPICE simulation environment.
SPICE (Simulation Program with Integrated Circuit Emphasis) is a general-purpose, open source analog electronic circuit simulator. It is a system used in integrated circuit(IC) and board-level design to check the integrity of circuit board designs and to forecast circuit behavior.
This can be used to design and model circuits ahead of laying them out in physical prototypes.
And also to assist with arranging schematics, hierarchica design abilities have been added consequently engineers will be able to incorporate classification blocks in place of a circuit and after that do it again in other sections of the design for them to save time.
The cutting edge Premium version moreover comes with forward and backward annotation functions, enabling engineers to transfer modifications from a schematic to a PCB board layout environment or from layout to schematic.
Mouser Electronics continues to provide the MultiSIM BLUE free PWB design software, created by National Instruments, for a couple years.
The NI MultiSim Component Evaluator by Mouser makes use of the Berkeley SPICE simulator engine and contains a pre-installed component library out of your distributor’s linecard.
MultiSIM BLUE can handle pre-layout design convergence analysis and mixed-signal emulating, and can certainly address components as complex as BGAs with around 1,000 pins on-pin-pitches down to 0.8 millimeters.
The software moreover features a 3D visual images of the circuit board with no limitations on the size and shape of the PWB. The printed circuit board layout function makes it possible for up to 64 layers, and it’s appropriate for standard output file forms which include Gerber 274X and 274D, DXF, 3D DXF, 3D IGES and also IPC-D-356A Netlist for simple design output and verification.
The Mouser community supplies the engineer with instructions, downloads, educational videos and member online forums.
