Multisim Basics (Online): Capturing, Simulating, and Analyzing a Design

Overview This instructor-led course is an online adaptation of the Multisim Basics course. It prepares you to capture, simulate and analyze electronic schematics. You will learn how to evaluate circuit performance in the real world through interactive simulation and detailed analyses. Additionally, you will learn how to create your own components to complement the database. At the end of this online Multisim Basics course, you can create schematics that are ready to transfer to board layout. By combining interactive learning technology delivered over the Internet with live instruction, this online course delivers many of the benefits of an instructor-led classroom course while reducing your training and development costs. Duration ­ Two Days (four 2-hour online sessions) Audience · New users and users preparing to develop circuit designs using Multisim as part of the Electronics Workbench DesignSuite · Users and technical managers evaluating Multisim in purchasing decisions · Circuit designers who are interested in adding simulation to their design cycle · Educators that are interested in using Multisim to help teach electronics · Users who cannot attend classroom-based Multsim Basics training Prerequisites · Experience with Microsoft Windows · Experience with or knowledge of electronics Products Used During the Course · Electronics Workbench Multisim Power Pro · Electronics Workbench Ultiboard Power Pro (to show design transfer) REGISTRATION Register online at or call (800) 890-2062 · Fax: (512) 683-9300 [email protected] Outside North America, contact your Electronics Workbench Distributor or local NI office.

Multisim Basics (Online): Course Outline

Day 1 Drawing a Schematic This lesson provides a general introduction to Multisim's Schematic Capture. You will build and wire a basic circuit in Multisim using a variety of means to access parts, experiment with the wiring, and run a basic simulation. Topics include: · Learning the general Multisim interface · Setting Multisim workspace parameters · Understanding the difference between real, virtual, ideal, and interactive parts · Using the Multisim database structure · Building and wiring a basic circuit (including virtual wiring) · Learning and setting wiring options Working with Instruments This lesson provides an introduction to virtual instruments, interactive simulation, and simulation settings. You will use virtual instruments and interactive simulation to examine the response and behavior of a circuit. You will also learn how to use the circuit wizards in Multisim. Topics include: · Becoming familiar with placing instruments, instrument faces and setting instrument controls · Identifying simulation settings · Using the Bode plotter to measure frequency response · Using the oscilloscope to monitor the circuit's transient response · Working with interactive instruments and components · Using Multisim circuit wizards Working with Analyses This lesson explores the characteristics of a circuit using analyses. It will cover the use of AC, Transient, Fourier, and Monte Carlo analyses and explore analyses settings and how to configure the Grapher. Topics include: · Comparing AC Analysis to a Bode plot · Comparing Transient Analysis with the Oscilloscope · Understanding how to set up and run Fourier Analysis · Understanding how to set up tolerances and run a Monte Carlo Analysis · Learning how to format the output in the Grapher Day 2 Reports, Communication, and Transfer The lesson introduces you to generating reports with Multisim 8. It teaches you to transferring their designs to Ultiboard for layout. Topics include: · Generating a Bill of Materials · Customizing the BOM · Learning about and transferring a design to layout
