## Demos of Multisim^{TM} Software (by Joe
Steinmeier)

A brief tutorial has been included for getting started with
National Instruments
Multisim^{TM} software. As you will learn, Multisim
is an extremely deep
piece of
software. While the
textbook introduces many of Multisim's fundamental concepts, in the
interest of space, many
topics are also left out and those topics that are included are
truncated. The tutorial strives to
review as well as continue the textbook's coverage of Multisim.

The tutorial consists of 43 basic "Demos" which are mixtures of
problems, solutions, investigations, and experiments using Multisim.
Each
Demo attempts to focus on introducing one main concept of Multisim,
although it is unavoidable that multiple concepts are introduced
throughout. The Demos are divided up into ten chapters (2 through 11)
to correspond to the appropriate chapters in the textbook. An index is
included to allow for the quick referencing of the tutorial. In
addition, scattered throughout the tutorial are five "Emphasis Demos"
marked by a *, which focus less on working with Multisim and more on
emphasizing a
specific fundamental circuit theory concept through the use of
simulation.
