Mouser boosts circuit design software features with MultiSIM BLUE Premium

July 13, 2016 // By Graham Prophet
Distributor Mouser Electronics’ MultiSIM BLUE Premium is the latest release of the Mouser Edition of the National Instruments Multisim circuit design tool. The premium edition, for €300 per licence, extends the (free version) MultiSIM BLUE design tool’s abilities to capture, simulate, carry out PCB design, BOM export and purchase, and adds flexibility and functionality.

MultiSIM BLUE Premium offers unlimited components within the schematic and integrated design capabilities. The advanced tool provides engineers with a simulation environment using Mouser's selection of products and a larger selection of NI components, including the newest in analogue and mixed-signal ICs, passive components, discrete semiconductors, power management ICs, connectors, and electromechanical components.


Featuring an industry-standard Berkley SPICE simulation environment, 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... 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.”


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.
