Multisim Live is an online SPICE circuit simulator which gives students the ability, to create, interactively simulate, learn, and share circuit all using a web browser. Using the same technology as Multisim (for desktop), Multisim Live adds to a student’s circuit learning experience by giving the students the chance to learn on any device (cell phone, tablet, computer, etc) without installing any software and plugging students into a community of over 30,000 public circuits to help spur ideas and accelerate learning.
You can access Multisim Live at multisim.comNote: This instruction was created using a laptop, if you are using a tablet or phone the images will be different.
Click the Create Circuit to enter the Multisim Live environment.
In this example, you will create a single stage low-pass filter as shown below.
The Components toolbar is on the left side of the screen, you can access all components from this toolbar.
Note: An alternative method for changing component properties is to select the part on the workspace and then select the Open configuration pane. The pane gives you access to all the component properties and makes changing the multiple component properties faster in some cases.
There are several methods to connect components.Method 1. Place a wire from pin-to-pin.
Method 2: Pin-to-pin connection
Method 3: Virtual Connection.
Note: If you have a premium access level, you can save the circuit as a private, and you can decide who can view it. All free access level users must save the circuit to public where everyone can see your circuit.
Go to measurementslive.ni.com and follow the on-screen instructions. If you have not used your NI ELVIS III before, a helpful link will pop-up directing you to getting started instructions.
Build the low-pass filter circuit mentioned above on the breadboard. If you do not know how the breadboard a circuit, you can view the How to Breadboard with NI ELVIS III tutorial.
The green curve shows the simulation data while the yellow curve is the real measurement. By comparing the simulation with real data, you can be confident that your circuit is working properly. If there is a problem with the real circuit, this feature can help you isolate the problem areas by comparing the simulation at different nodes in the circuit with the corresponding nodes in the real circuit.
