Mouser includes SPICE simulation to MultiSIM Printed Circuit Board program

The latest MultiSIM BLUE version of the NI Multisim PC board design software program which is offered by Mouser Electronics is the Advanced version features a Berkley SPICE simulation environment.

Regarding SPICE
SPICE (Simulation Program with Integrated Circuit Emphasis) is a general-purpose, free analog electronic circuit emulator. It is a program utilized in integrated circuit(IC) and board-level design to inspect the integrity of circuit card designs and also to predict circuit behavior.

This can be employed to design and imitate circuits previous to laying them out in actual physical prototypes.
As well as to assist in organising schematics, hierarchica design features are already incorporated so as engineers can incorporate classification blocks in place of a circuit after which do it again in other parts of the design to save lots of hours.

The new Advanced version moreover comes with forward and backward annotation functionality, allowing engineers to move alterations from a schematic to a circuit card layout environment or from layout to schematic.

Mouser Electronics has been providing the MultiSIM BLUE zero-cost circuit board design tool, made by National Instruments, for a couple years.

The NI MultiSim Component Evaluator by Mouser uses the Berkeley SPICE simulator engine and carries a preloaded component library coming from the distributor’s linecard.
MultiSIM BLUE works with pre-layout design convergence analysis and mixed-signal simulation, and can work with components as difficult as BGAs with well over 1,000 pins on-pin-pitches as small as 0.8 mm.

The program also delivers a 3D visualization of the printed circuit board without any limitations on the shape and size of the PC board. The circuit card layout attribute allows up to 64 layers, and is also compatible with standard output file forms which include Gerber 274X and 274D, DXF, 3D DXF, 3D IGES and also IPC-D-356A Netlist for easy design output and verification.

The Mouser community provides the engineer with instructions, downloads, educational videos and user online forums.
