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,


Are you going to NIWeek this year? This year marks the 21th year of the annual conference which brings together the brightest minds in engineering and science at the Austin Convention Center.




I wanted to let everyone know that there will be a special Multisim lunch and learn session taking place at NI Week 2015 on the new features and improvements in the latest release of Multisim. The session is on Wed Aug 5, 2015 and will be presented by our product experts and includes the following topics:


  • Keynote Speech
  • What’s New in Multisim and Ultiboard
  • Application Focused Designs
  • Open Discussion and User Feedback


Lunch will be served (compliments of NI.) The session is in meeting room 2 at the Austin convention center. Please confirm attendance before August 1, 2015 by responding to

Hello Circuit Educators,


I just wanted to let everyone know that our new Engaging Engineering video portal is now live. The Engaging Engineering video portal is a collection of courseware demonstrations that allow educators to see exactly how National Instrument’s hardware, software and courseware can be used to engage students and promote concept retention. The videos are focused on specific engineering concepts and show exactly how a lesson can be taught using a hands-on, experiential approach.




The following subject areas are available:

  • Circuits and Electronics
  • Controls and Mechatronics
  • RF and Communications
  • Measurements and Instrumentation



Most sections have downloadable courseware or tutorials with an expanded set of experiments to further develop important engineering concepts.


Let me know if you have any feedback or questions on this or any other Multisim topics.
