NI Multisim, also known as NEMO electronics, is an open source electronics simulator software for designing electronics and communication systems. It was developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The software can be used to design simple electronic circuits, multilayer resistors, and multilayer capacitors in electrical engineering and thermal design. NI Multisim has been used in the design of digital electronic circuits for more than 35 years.
The software can be used as a stand-alone electronic engineering simulator with a variety of input and output devices or as part of an integrated circuit design tool for designing electronic systems. The main advantage of using the NI Multisim in designing circuits is that it allows you to develop your design on a large scale, without the use of printed circuit boards (PCBs), boards, or traces. The ability to incorporate multiple design patterns results in higher flexibility. The latest version of the software, version 6.0, includes support for the latest techniques in circuit design, such as hot spot amplification, FETs, MOSFETs, and n-type materials. Users of the software can easily adjust its voltage and temperature simulation abilities for various circuits. This enables the graduate students to easily develop power transistors and bipolar voltage swing configurations that are applicable in numerous applications.
Users of the software gain first-hand experience of designing effective electronic systems by designing and implementing complex working models. In addition to this, students learn various information technology concepts such as RF and wireless technologies, software-testing methods, and software implementation techniques, through a combination of self-paced online training and in-class lab sessions. Through this training, graduate students also gain valuable exposure to real world technologies that they may require for their future careers. Through hands-on practice using the NI Multisim, students also learn how to debug and repair electronic systems.
