National Instruments Corporation, the provider of platform-based systems that enable engineers and scientists to solve the world's greatest engineering challenges, has released 14.0.1 version of Circuit Design Suite, is a suite that can be effectively used for the circuit designing.The NI Circuit Design Suite combines NI Multisim and Ultiboard software for a complete circuit design, simulation, validation, and layout platform.
Multisim is an intuitive environment for circuit design. With advanced mixed-mode simulation and validation, this software offers professional tools for your research and prototyping. And using a comprehensive library of components, you can easily build and validate circuit behavior.
Ultiboard is a flexible PCB layout and routing environment. Easily transfer completed Multisim schematics to Ultiboard and layout, route, and export completed designs for fabrication.
The following is a subset of the issues fixed since the last release of Circuit Design Suite:
