This module provides an exercise with step by step instructions for finding and placing components in National Instruments Multisim. Multisim is fully featured SPICE schematic capture and simulation tool used for circuit design, simulation, and in combination with Ultiboard for layout of custom PCBs.

Approximate time to complete: 10 minutes

This exercise has been designed to introduce users to the component browser. By the end of this exercise, youshould be able to open the component browser, search and find components that you need, and learn more information about thosecomponents using the various fields of the browser.


  • Learn how to use the component browser to locate desired components.
  • Become familiar with the information that the component browser provides.


  • Open a new schematic window (File/New/Schematic Capture).
  • Bring up the component browser by clicking on the Sources button of the Parts Bin (or Components Toolbar).
  • Locate and place a Groundsymbol onto the schematic. It is found in the POWER_SOURCES Family.
  • Use the Searchtool to locate the Analog Devices OP297AZ.
    • From within the component browser, click Search.
    • Type “OP297AZ” into the Component field, when you locate the part click OK. Do not place the component yet.
    • How many different varieties of this Opamp are in your database?__________

(Hint:Try including a wildcard ‘*’ in your search: “OP297*”)

    • How many sections does this chip have? __________

(Hint: Sections are lettered from A-Z)

    • Should you place the opamp, you will have the option of choosing section A or B. You do not need to place the opamp at thistime.
    • Use the Search tool to locate the 74S04D Hex Inverter.
  • When you place the inverter, you are given the option of placing any of the six inverters. Place the A gate. Notice that younow have the option of placing a new chip, or continuing to place gates of the existing U1.
  • Place another “A” gate. What is the default reference designator for this new inverter? ________
