Welcome to the NI Circuit Design Community

Welcome to the NI Circuit Design Community - a community and blog for NI Multisim users. This community is a forum for engineers, educators and students to share custom components, models and footprints, and collaborate with fellow circuit designers around the world. Join the group to get automatic updates from our circuit design blog.

Getting Started

New to circuit design? The following resources step you thorugh the fundamental stages of prototyping.


  1. Capture and simulate
  2. Create a custom component
  3. Transfer to layout
  4. Routing a design
  5. Create a custom landpattern
  6. Complete design for fabrication
  7. Export to Gerber and NC drill
  8. Pre and post layout check-list


Use Multisim and Ultiboard to design with these resources.

Hello Circuit Designers,


I wanted to let everyone know about some great work done by one of our interns from the University of Manchester working at National Instruments in the UK.  myBall & Beam is based on the classic ball balancing systems control using myRIO as the controller, Multisim for schematic design and Ultiboard for PCB layout.

myBall & Beam uses an IR sensor to continuously detect the ball's current position and a servo to control the tilt of the beam. This information is analyzed on the myRIO's embedded processor to provide feedback to the system. To check out the full project with schematics, PCB layout and code visit this location.

Hello Circuit Designers,


Are you going to DesignCon this year? Held on January 27-30 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in California, DesignCon offers state-of-the-art design methodologies, applications and technologies for chip, board and systems design engineers. National Instruments will be exhibiting Multisim, VirtualBench and PXI systems. Check us out at Booth 507.




BTW, National Instruments is sponsoring the DesignCon Engineer of the Year 2015 award, which will be awarded on Wednesday January 28 at the show. The award includes a $10,000 grant that the winner can designate to his/her choice of institution of higher learning.
