Lab 1: Introduction to NI Multisim 11 1. Objectives To become familiar with NI (National Instruments) MultiSim to be used in the Lab simulation. To implement simple electric circuits examples using MultiSim. 2. Software Required NI MultiSim 3. Introduction to Electronics Workbench MultiSim National Instruments’ MultiSim is a circuit simulation platform, similar to other SPICE programs that can model the behavior of a particular analog or digital circuit. In this capacity you have a software program in which you can model any conceivable circuit design, examine the corresponding circuit for values at particular components or probe the behavior of the entire circuit by performing DC, AC or transient analyses, and much more. With this tool you have access to thousands of parts and components, available at your disposal. This means that in addition to the convenience of not actually having to physically have components available, you have limitless combinations of circuit designs. National Instruments’ Design Suite software includes other programs such as Multicap, Multisim, Ultiboard and Ultiroute. In this tutorial we focus on MultiSim 11, the circuit simulation platform. This is included in the DESIGNSUITE Freeware edition 9 which can be downloaded from the following website at the time of this writing: Click on the “Download Now” link and simply download the program to a temp folder. Once finished, double click on the file dsfree9.exe to execute it. This is a self extracting file and the setup routines will startup automatically. Once finished you will have successfully installed the DesignSuite software including MultiSim. For Windows users the default location can be found by clicking: Start>All Programs>Electronics Workbench>DesignSuite Freeware Edition 9>MultiSim 11. The following program window opens up.
