Enter to Win a Free Analog Discovery 2… with Multisim Live!


Multisim Live, which is a circuit simulation software that is browser based. That means no matter where you are, if you have a connection to the web, you can simulate circuits. Check out that post if you’ve never heard about Multisim Live or want to learn more.

An example circuit created by a Multisim Live user.

National Instruments, is currently trying to increase the number of fundamental circuits on Multisim Live, so that they can be used to teach basic circuits. If you know some basic circuits, they are inviting you to put those circuits on Multisim Live.

In return they are offering one free Analog Discovery 2 to the lucky winner!

If all else fails, carry your Analog Discovery 2 to avoid distress.

To enter all you have to do is:

  1. Sign up for Multisim Live at beta.multisim.com.
  2. Design your circuit.
  3. Make sure your circuit works and displays the desired behavior in the grapher.
  4. Title the circuit with what it is, add an informative description, and tag the circuit as Circuit Fundamentals.

Follow these steps by April 2nd and you’ll be entered to win a free Analog Discovery. To view the original rules and examples of qualifying circuits see the original post. To learn more about the Analog Discovery 2 check out the resource center or continue to follow our blog.

About Author

When I started school I wasn’t interested in any of things I’m passionate about now. In fact originally I started out wanting to study art. But then I decided I didn’t want to have people telling me what to create, so I changed to music. Then I decided I didn’t want to ruin a hobby by making it my career. At the same time my Physics class was teaching a unit on the physics of music, and I thought that was way interesting, so I changed to physics. Then by the time physics was over I decided that the coolest part of physics was electricity and magnetism, and I may as well get a degree that transfers directly into a career. So while all this was happening, I was attending Shoreline Community College, and during that time I found my passion, or rather presented itself repeatedly, until I realized, maybe I should take a hint from the universe. While at community college, I was asked to help at the high school by tutoring chemistry students. Then I was asked to help at the elementary school by being a math Olympiad coach. I continued both because I found I really enjoyed it. I also had an opportunity, and was hired to be a tutor in the Math Learning Center at the Community College, a job I really loved. At the same time I was working as a Nanny, which I had been doing for several years, the main reason because I could and would answer the hard questions the kids asked honestly (i.e. why is the sky blue). I then was recommended by the patrons of the MLC to the transfer tutoring center (private tutoring,) and developed a wait list of students. Through all these opportunities at some point I realized that I loved watching people go from totally lost, to masters of a subject. I was also forced to admit that having all these opportunities continually renewed, I must have been somewhat good at it. So I decided I wanted to teach, which fits with my mission oriented personality. I saw a serious lack of passionate ECE professors in the institutions I attended. At WSU I continued this trend by being ask to TA for computer science and electrical engineering, being a TA for a total of 4 semesters. This continued by getting an amazing opportunity in my first semester at Washington State University to work at Digilent, an educational company. So even if I didn’t want to teach, turns out I can’t avoid it. Luckily it is my main passion.


  1. Limited to 9 Components, when you say they are inviting us to put those ‘simple’ circuits on MultiSim Live you aren’t kidding. I literally gave up when I received the message to upgrade to Premium.

      Hi Chris,

      It looks like they are still running the promotion of offering a free upgrade to Premium. I don’t know how long that lasts or what the pricing would look like after the beta run though. Going through it myself to see what all was needed, they didn’t ask for any credit card information and there was a downgrade to free button available, if that makes a difference to you.
