Multisim Circuit Simulation

Multisim Circuit Simulation Interactive, Online Lab
Students will learn to use the simulation software, Multisim, to simulate the behavior of digital circuits. Students will explore the functionality of various digital circuits without the need of physical components. Finally, students will deploy digital circuits to hardware using NI Digital Systems Development Board to reinforce concepts discussed throughout the lab. This lab is hosted by the online platform Thinkscape.
