About Analog Devices

National Instruments and Analog Devices Inc. (ADI) began collaborating on the Multisim database with the release of NI Multisim 10.0 in January 2007. This relationship ensures that Multisim customers can evaluate many ADI components such as operational amplifiers and comparators.

ADI defines innovation and excellence in signal processing. The company's analog, mixed-signal, and digital signal processing (DSP) integrated circuits (ICs) play a fundamental role in converting, conditioning, and processing real-world phenomena such as light, sound, temperature, motion, and pressure into electrical signals for use in a wide array of electronic equipment. 

ADI provides customers unique tools to evaluate their components online. Some of these include Multisim simulation technology as well as NI LabVIEW graphical programming.

  1. With the ADIsimOpAmp tool, you can choose an op-amp, place it in a specific topology (inverting, noninverting, difference), and evaluate it online. Learn more by clicking here.

Other Information

As a part of the relationship between National Instruments and ADI, in 2007, the companies created the Multisim Analog Devices Edition. This is a component evaluation edition of the software that is used to view only Analog Devices components and understand the performance of these components.

If you are using the Multisim Analog Devices Edition, view the chart below to see how this software compares to complete NI Multisim software packages.
