Now updated to MultiSIM 9, this workbook supplements basic DC/AC instruction and demonstrates how to troubleshoot faulty circuits using MultiSIM as the standard tool. Working on the computer, readers will learn to make measurements, determine faults, replace components, and test results using the same processes and techniques that would be used in an actual hardware lab. This highly engaging approach quickly builds the skill and confidence levels necessary to do live circuit troubleshooting in real-world situations. Using MultiSIM: Troubleshooting DC/AC Circuits, 4E can also be used as a stand-alone guide for fostering a thorough understanding of basic circuit fundamentals.

Features and Benefits

  • New material has been added to showcase the expanded capabilites of the MultiSIM software package
  • An interactive approach that pairs virtual use of circuits with "hands on" work with hardware and components that reinforce learning
  • Test equipment that was previously part of the MultiSIM package has been enhanced with "real world" Agilent and Tektronix test instruments
  • Readers can apply theoretical concepts learned to this virtual laboratory without the expense of hardware, components, and test equipment typically found in a lab
  • Circuits can be easily changed using typical on-screen editing techniques
  • The accompanying CD contains all circuit files created in MultiSIM necessary to complete workbook assignments and activites
