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,


NI Multisim version 14.0.0 includes an additional 500 new components with footprints and simulation models from International Rectifier.


Multisim FamilyDescriptionNumber of Components
POWER_MOS_COMPComplimentary N=P Channel Power MOSFET2
POWER_MOS_NN-Channel Power MOSFET353
SCHOTTKY_DIODESchottky Diode45


Power MOSFETs Models


Some of the more noteworthy additions include Power MOSFETs such as single- and dual- N-channel and P-channel devices that offer fast switching speeds to meet a variety of power requirements. These devices can be used in applications such as:

  • AC-DC and DC-DC power supplies 
  • audio and consumer electronics 
  • motor control 
  • lighting and home appliances



IGBT Models


For Switched Mode Power Supplies designs, Multisim 14.0.0 includes over 100 new and updated IGBT components with footprints and simulation models.


Now in Multisim, you can accurately evaluate power electronics circuits built around International Rectifier IGBTs ranging from 300V to 1200V based on various technologies. You can optimize the design with powerful SPICE simulation to minimize switching and conduction losses and increase efficiency, reduce thermal problems and improve power density.



For a complete listing of new International Rectifier components vist this location.

Hello Multisim Users,


Just a quick note today to let everyone know that Multisim 14.0 has been released. This upgrade is free for users with an up-to-date Standard Service Program membership.


Added functionality includes all-new parameter analysis, integration with new embedded targets, and simplified design with user-definable templates. For the circuit designer there are 6,000 new components from leading manufacturers, a new active analysis toolbar to improve engineering workflow and enhanced voltage, current, power and digital probes.




For educators and students Multisim 14 comes with a new plug-in to co-simulate with Microchip’s MPLAB for simulation of complete circuits including PIC Microcontrollers (MCUs). Educators can combine the teaching of analog electronics, digital circuits, and embedded systems topics in a single software environment. Students can learn advanced concepts of real-world applications such as Pulse Width Modulation and LCD displays.


Over the next few posts I will be going in to more detail on these new features. Stay tuned.
