NI Ultiboard – Printed Circuit Board Layout and Routing

What Is NI Ultiboard?
Prototype faster with the Ultiboard layout and routing environment.

Rapidly prototype printed circuit boards (PCBs) with Ultiboard. The flexible Ultiboard design environment accelerates design with automated functionality while maintaining precision with manual control. You can export to industry standard formats like Gerber and DXF. In addition, complete integration to NI Multisim allows for comprehensive design annotation and access to advanced circuit simulation technology. Ultiboard benefits include the following:

  • Flexible environment optimized for rapid design and accurate part or copper placement
  • Engineer-friendly interface for laying out and routing PCBs
  • Seamless integration with Multisim to ensure accurate transfer of simulated designs
  • Comprehensive database of connector footprints for custom designing NI hardware and test platforms
  • Easy export to industry-standard Gerber or DXF formats for prototyping and fabrication
