Circuits and Electronics

The National Instruments solution for teaching circuits and electronics gives students the ability to move seamlessly from theory to simulation to experimentation by combining educational hardware that is based on industry-standard technology with NI Multisim circuit simulation software and courseware. Within Multisim, educational features such as interactive components, 3D breadboarding, and hardware integration give students the ability to apply theory to real-world scenarios.

Lab Companion for Circuits Textbook

This supplement to Circuits by Ulaby and Maharbiz contains 40 additional homework problems fostering comparison between theory, simulation, lab data and analysis. After solving the problem analytically, the student continues to solving the same problem with Multisim and then once again with NI myDAQ or NI ELVIS.
