Mouser launches MultiSIM BLUE Premium and raises the bar with enhanced design flexibility and features
Published: 13 July 2016 - Sarah Mead
Mouser Electronics, Inc. today announces the global release of MultiSIM BLUE Premium, the newest release of the award-winning MultiSIM BLUE — the Mouser Edition of the NI Multisim circuit design tool. MultiSIM BLUE Premium takes the MultiSIM BLUE design tool’s ability to scheme, simulate, PCB design, BOM export and purchase, and boosts it to a new level of refreshingly unlimited flexibility and functionality.
MultiSIM BLUE Premium, powered by National Instruments (NI), offers unlimited components within the schematic and integrated design capabilities. The new advanced tool provides engineers with a simulation environment using Mouser's vast selection of products and a larger selection of NI components, including the newest in analog and mixed-signal ICs, passive components, discrete semiconductors, power management ICs, connectors, and electromechanical components.
Featuring an industry-standard Berkley SPICE simulation environment of electronic circuits, MultiSIM BLUE Premium provides engineers with the freedom to design and simulate circuits before laying them out in physical prototypes. Engineers can now visualize and evaluate linear performance, making this critical step of circuit design easier, faster and far more productive.
“Based on the overwhelming success and demand for a more robust version of MultiSIM BLUE, it made perfect sense for Mouser to collaborate again with NI to produce the new MultiSIM BLUE Premium,” said Kevin Hess, Mouser’s Senior Vice President of Marketing. “The design process is all about getting your ideas to market before anyone else. With MultiSIM BLUE Premium, we’ve raised the design bar by creating an even easier-to-use, unlimited, and a more time-efficient integrated platform for circuit simulation and design from PCB to BOM that is sure to create a buzz in our engineering community.”
To help better organize and modularize schematics, hierarchical design capabilities have been added so engineers can incorporate classification blocks in place of a circuit and then repeat it in other parts of the design to save time. MultiSIM BLUE Premium also includes forward and backward annotation capabilities, allowing engineers to transfer changes from a schematic to a PCB layout environment or from layout to schematic. Other robust features of MultiSIM BLUE Premium include unlimited schematic sheets and levels to help provide greater context and flexibility to an engineer’s overall design, and unrestricted access to components and custom components to offer limitless possibilities when building a design in real time. The powerful tool helps to further enhance development, giving engineers a better understanding of their designs and speeding time-to-market.
