January 31, 2011 -- NORWOOD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) and National Instruments (NI) collaborated on a new release of NI’s Multisim™
component evaluation tool with added features and functionality to provide engineers with an easy-to-use
environment for the
simulation of linear
circuits using ADI components. The free component evaluation tool is available on ADI’s website. Download a

important feature enhancements available in this edition of the component evaluation tool allow engineers to
design larger, more complex circuits and easily import their own models into the tool. By matching more than 1,000
of ADI’s amplifiers, switches and voltage references to over 550 of NI’s simulation models, designers have free
access to the industry’s premier simulation environment allowing them to easily experiment with circuit designs
and reduce system development time and cost.
custom version of the NI Multisim simulation environment, engineers can take a graphical approach to evaluating
many of ADI’s industry-leading linear analog components. The result is the flexibility and creative freedom to
quickly improve design decisions,” said Bhavesh Mistry, general manager, National Instruments Electronics
Workbench Group. “Engineers working to tight schedules and budgets can avoid costly and time-consuming re-design
work due to component choice by enhancing productivity with this
“Finding the right solution for a linear circuit
often means sorting through many products and specifications,” said Steve Sockolov, director, Precision Signal
Conditioning Group, Analog Devices. “With ADI’s extensive portfolio of amplifiers and other linear components,
it’s important that we offer innovative ways to help customers find what they need quickly. Multisim joins a suite
of free resources, such as ADI’s
DiffAmp Calculator, developed with the engineer’s product selection and evaluation needs in mind.”
NI Multisim Component Evaluator - Analog Devices Edition Features and Benefits:
Build simulatable circuits to evaluate a library of Analog Devices’ operational amplifiers, switches and
Simulate better with SPICE parser improvements, updated BSIM models, support for advanced parameters and
enhanced digital simulation accuracy.
Improve design communication with on-page connectors and a new WYSIWYG net naming system.
