Mouser includes SPICE simulator to MultiSIM PCB program

The latest MultiSIM BLUE version of the NI Multisim PCB board design program which is offered by Mouser Electronics is the High grade version incorporates a Berkley SPICE simulation environment.

About SPICE
SPICE (Simulation Program with Integrated Circuit Emphasis) is a general-purpose, open source analogue electronic circuit simulator. It’s a program used in integrated circuit(IC) and board-level design to look into the integrity of circuit card designs and also to predict circuit behavior.

This can be utilized to design and imitate circuits prior to laying them out in actual prototypes.
As well as to ease organising schematics, hierarchica design functionality are already added so as engineers can incorporate classification blocks in place of a circuit then do it again in other parts of the design to help save time frame.

The innovative Advanced version likewise comprises of backward and forward annotation functionality, permitting engineers to transport improvements from a schematic to a PCB layout environment or from layout to schematic.

Mouser Electronics continues to provide the MultiSIM BLUE zero-cost circuit card design software, brought to life by National Instruments, for a couple years.

The NI MultiSim Component Evaluator by Mouser employs the Berkeley SPICE emulator engine and includes a pre-installed component library via the distributor’s linecard.
MultiSIM BLUE can handle pre-layout design convergence analysis and mixed-signal simulation, and can certainly address components as challenging as BGAs with around 1,000 pins on-pin-pitches as small as 0.8 millimeters.

The software tool also delivers a 3D visual images of the PCB with no limitations on the size and shape of the PC board. The circuit card layout feature allows for as many as 64 layers, and is compatible with standard output file famats like Gerber 274X and 274D, DXF, 3D DXF, 3D IGES along with IPC-D-356A Netlist for straightforward design output and verification.

The Mouser online community supplies the engineer with documentation, downloads, video tutorials and member communities.
