Circuit Design with Validated Components from Semiconductor Manufacturers

Multisim’s component libraries are validated by NI R&D engineers who work directly with leading semiconductor manufacturers on obtaining precise models leading to accurate simulation results. Not only you can benefit from over 24,000 components in Multisim’s database but also you can create custom components and footprints or ask NI for a consultation service to create special models for your design.

Some of our most commonly components in the aerospace and defense arena are



  • - A large variety of operational and instrumentation amplifiers from Analog Devices
  • - IF stage amplifiers from Texas Instruments
  • - Military proof transistors models from ON Semiconductor
  • - NXP ADC/DAC and I/O power components

Development of Flight Camera Equipment by a National Lab

This national lab needed to have a quick and accurate turn around on circuit prototypes for onboard electronics equipment, as well as, to be able to leverage simulation for circuit design, and effectively validate and verify the prototype behavior. Using Multisim and Ultiboard, they rapidly captured, simulated and verified the circuit behavior during the design stages. Then directly compare simulated results to prototype measurement to validate and improve model accuracy. Learn more
