The latest release of the free NI Multisim Component Evaluator – Analog Devices Edition adds features and functionality for the simulation of linear circuits using ADI components. Developed in collaboration with National Instruments, the new version includes more than 870 models of ADI’s linear components. By pairing these components with intuitive simulation features and SPICE analyses, engineers can now visualize and evaluate linear performance, making this critical step of circuit design easier, faster and more productive. The free component evaluation tool is available for download on ADI’s website at http://www.analog.com/multisim. Engineers can also design larger, more complex circuits and import their own models into the tool. The new Multisim snippets feature allows “drag and drop” of saved Multisim circuit files for sharing or to use in new designs. The new release further enhances the user experience with virtual component property editing and provides a highly graphical environment for advanced simulation features and analyses, making it easier for designers to build and evaluate complete linear circuits.
