  • Can VirtualBench be used to monitor signals while simulating in Multisim™?

Solution

VirtualBench is accessible in Multisim™ as an instrument. However, it can only be used as a signal source. In order to monitor or measure signals, a different instrument (such as an oscilloscope) should be used.

Additional Information

In order to access VirtualBench in Multisim™, the attached VB_Multisim_Library.llb is required. This library must be installed to:
C:\Program Files (x86)\National Instruments\Circuit Design Suite XX.X\lvinstruments
