"Full featured product that is easy to use"

What do you like best?

NI Multisim is a one of a kind product. It features a fully featured circuit design framework that is as versatile as you need it to be.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the cost of the program. It is extremely expensive ($1000+ for the basic version, $4000+ for the most advanced version).

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you do circuit design, this product is definitely for you! While it comes with a hefty price tag, I believe that it is worth every penny. There are a lot of other competitors out there, but you would be hard pressed to find a product that measures up to this one.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The business problems we have solved using NI Multisim are mainly circuit design. The benefit is a very clear and accurate diagram of our circuits, thus saving us money in the long run.

"NI Multisim is the best simulation product compared to other similar software (PSpice, etc)"

What do you like best?

I started to use Multisim about 4 years ago. At the beginning I had just an evaluation product, but since 2014 I had the opportunity to use a registed version (I've got the registration from one of my students). I am now using Multisim 13.0 and I am very satisfied with it. 20 years ago, when the electronics simulation software was at the beggining I was using PSpice for my needs of designing IC schematics. I changed to Multisim because it is easier to draw the schematics diagram, the number of (electronic) symbols available is overwhelming, and the simulation is perfect. I am not saying that Pspice is a bad software but when compared with NI Multisim, NI Multisim is like driving a fast new car instead of a 100 years old Ford. What is amazing in Multisim is that you can learn it after 5 minutes of using it. And of course NI Multisim comes with UtilBoard, another software where you can transfer the schematics that you have just made, and have a board designed with ease.

I guess Multisim is still offering the evaluation version, but in this version the number of libraries (and electronic symbols available) is limited. So go with the registered version of the multisim and you will not regret.

What do you dislike?

When compared with Pspice, it is not so easy in Multisim to edit the simulation MODEL of a device. You have this possibility of course, but in Multisim, each symbol comes with its MODEL pre-defined. You do not have a library of MODELS available and easy to edit and change.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Buy the registered version afer evaluating, the number of libraries that it contains is overwhelming.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am an online tutor with 24houranswers.com and I am doing some of the homework of my students with NI Multisim. It is faster and better than using PSpice.

What Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"accurate spice simulation with multiple new electronic components"

What do you like best?

The best part of multisim is the spice simulation which helps in resolving circuiyts for a chip designing and helps save prototype iterations printed on pcb

What do you dislike?

nothing much to dislike about it as it is really easy to adapt in th phase 1 of learning to develop a circuit

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Have used in phase 1 for circuit design applications while joinng the company and helped to develop many projects without creating a prototype pcb design and directly implementaed the final product on pcb

"I was using it for my college projects "

What do you like best?

it has cool ui and user friendly it is so easy to learn and make great projects with it even if you don't know programming at all also it is very good for trying project before building real one

What do you dislike?

the ni card is so expensive here so sometimes i prefer to use arduino for small projects

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I used it only for educational purpose at college , it help me made so many cool projects

"Can it be more helpful?"

What do you like best?

Designing circuits has never been more easy

What do you dislike?

I like the interface don't get me wrong, but I think it can still be a little more user friendly.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Teaching software in a really smooth way

"A powerful and standardize tool used in designing, prototyping, and testing electrical circuits"

What do you like best?

A tool equipped with a rich set of components helps design analog and digital circuits as well as simulation environment. Its capability to share designs in a group of co-workers.

What do you dislike?

Expensive to learn and to build simulation model. Sometimes it is difficult to interpret simulation results.

Recommendations to others considering the product

A tool should have for design and development of electronic circuits

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Building simulation environments and testing

"Used to work on academic projects using Multisim"

What do you like best?

It is a very user friendly software that you can easily navigate through.

What do you dislike?

Some icons might take getting used to at first but it takes time to figure out which symbol means what.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Power Electronics personnel should definitely master Multisim as this experience would help them in learning many other software tools.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Simulating the circuits and finding alternate solutions can be easily done using Multisim as there is no capital required for changing the circuitry and testing it. This way it is much better to find the best suited components to be used in your products.

"Multisim"

What do you like best?

I love that you can optimize your circuit design performance with powerful SPICE simulation and intuitive analyses. You can reduce design errors, prototype faster, and improve productivity.

What do you dislike?

The user interface can be extremely difficult to navigate through. It would takes weeks of training to utilize fully.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Get your training and make sure you are savvy!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is the cornerstone of the NI circuits teaching solution to build expertise through practical application in designing, prototyping, and testing electrical circuits.
