1 Complete Wei Siang Pee PCB Design Using NI Multisim, NI Ultiboard, LPKF CircuitCAM and BoardMaster pg. 1

2 Introduction Multisim equips educators, students, and professionals with the tools to analyze circuit behavior. The intuitive and easy-to-use software platform combines schematic capture and industry-standard SPICE simulation into a single integrated environment. Multisim abstracts the complexities and difficulties of traditional syntax-based simulation, so you no longer need to be an expert in SPICE to simulate and analyze circuits. Ultiboard provides an easy and intuitive platform to design printed circuit boards (PCBs). The flexible Ultiboard design environment offers automated functionality for speed and manual techniques for precise control. With complete integration to NI Multisim, Ultiboard helps you optimize PCB design. Quickly prototype whether for professional designs or academic research. CircuitCAM is a combined Computer Aided Design(CAD) and Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) program. You can use CircuitCAM to import, check and edit circuit board production data in various CAM formats, and then output them into a LMD format. CircuitCAM is particularly useful for calculating the insulations channels between the conductor tracks in circuit board prototype production using LPKF circuit board plotters. BoardMaster is capable of reading in, displaying and processing production data in LMD format generated in LPKF CircuitCAM as well as production data generated in HP-GL format. Boardmaster takes over complete control of the circuit board plotter. LPKF Protomat S100 is one of LPKF's top-of-the-line rapid circuit board plotters, ideal for all in-house prototyping applications, including multilayer and RF applications. The S100 features the highest spindle speed possible -- resulting in the precision circuit geometries today's high-frequency and microwave applications demand -- and a pneumatic working depth limiter, for the most surface-sensitive substrates.
