4.3. Modifying Component Parameters in Multisim 7


When using the Multisim 7 software to create a circuit schematic, not all of the required
components will be contained in the software database. For example, when a search was
done for TIP31A and TIP32A, no result was found. As such, the required components will
have to be created. One of two things can be done.
a) Create a totally new component from scratch:
In this case the Component Wizard will have to be used. Instructions on how to
create a new component from scratch is provided in the document Creating a
component in MultiSim.pdf which can be found on the myeLearning website.
b) Identify a similar component in the database and modify it to meet the required
specifications.
This section demonstrates how an existing component in the database can be modified.
The 2SC2786 transistor will be modified to create the TIP31A since their parameters are
similar.
4.3.1.

From the menu bar at the top of the worksheet window, select Tools Database
Management. The window shown in Figure 21will appear.

Figure 21: Database Management Window

4.3.2.

Choose the Component tab and select the component to be edited from the list. In this
case, select Transistors BJT_NPN. A list of the available BJT_NPN transistors will
appear as shown in Figure 22.

PCBLAB1: Introduction to PCB Design Using Multisim 7

Figure 22: Selecting 2SC2786 transistors

4.3.3.

Select 2SC2786. This transistor is similar to the TIP31A; therefore this transistor will be
modified.

NOTE: It is not desired that the existing component in the MASTER Database is permanently
modified. Thus, a copy of the component will be created and this copy will be modified.
4.3.4.

Click on the Copy tab at the bottom right hand corner of the Database Management
window as shown in Figure 22. A window similar to that shown in Figure 23 will
appear.

Figure 23: Select Destination Family Name Window

19

PCBLAB1: Introduction to PCB Design Using Multisim 7

4.3.5.

Select the TRANSISTORS Group, and then click Add Family. A window similar to
Figure 24 will appear.

Figure 24: New Family Name Dialog Box

4.3.6.

For the family name, type BJT_NPN and then click OK. A window similar to Figure 25
will appear. The new family BJT_NPN will now appear under the TRANSISTOR Group.

Figure 25: New family name displayed under the Transistor Group

4.3.7.

Highlight the new family and then click OK. This will take you back to the Database
Management window, where the component to be modified was first selected. See
Figure 26.

4.3.8.

Go to the scroll bar on the left hand side of the window.

4.3.9.

Scroll down until the USER tab is within view and select it. The window shown in
Figure 27 will now appear.

Figure 27: Finding copied component in created Family

4.3.10.

Within the Family Tree box, click TRANSISTORS then BJT_NPN. A copy of the
2SC2786 transistor will be shown within the component list.

NOTE: A copy of the component 2SC2786 has now been created. This component can be freely
modified without affecting the original file stored in the MultiSim 7 software database. Refer to
the specification sheet for the TIP31A to obtain the parameters that are to be used in
modifying the component.
21

PCBLAB1: Introduction to PCB Design Using Multisim 7

4.3.11. Go to the bottom right hand side of the Database Management window and click Edit.
A window similar to that shown in Figure 28 will appear. Data under each of the tabs
shown has to be modified.

PCBLAB1: Introduction to PCB Design Using Multisim 7

Figure 31: New component TIP31A

NOTE: The TIP31A has been successfully created, however the TIP32A must now be created
since it was not found in the database. Refer to the specification sheet for the TIP32A to obtain
the required information.
The 2SA1015 transistor will be modified to create the TIP32A since their parameters are
similar.

24

PCBLAB1: Introduction to PCB Design Using Multisim 7

4.3.18. The Database Management window will be open at this point. Scroll up until the
MULTISIM MASTER tab is within view and select it as shown in Figure 32.
4.3.19. Select Transistors from the Family Tree box, then BJT_PNP as the 2SA1015 is a pnp
transistor.
4.3.20. Now, select 2SA1015 from the Component List.

Figure 32: Copying 2SA1015

In a previous step, a copy of the component was created for modification. A copy of the
2SA1015 will now be created, given that the parameters of the original component are
not to be modified.
4.3.21. On the bottom right hand side of the Database Management window as shown in Figure
32, click Copy. The Select Destination Family Name window as shown in Figure 33 will
appear.

Note that the BJT_NPN family that was created in the previous section appears under the
Transistors group. For this new component (TIP32A), a new family has to be created.
4.3.23. Click on Add Family on the bottom right hand side of the window. A window similar to
that of Figure 34 will appear.

Figure 34: Create New Family Name

4.3.24.

Enter BJT_PNP in the Enter Family Name dialog box.

4.3.25.

Click Ok to exit the New Family Name window then click OK again to return to the Database
Management window as shown in Figure 35.

26

PCBLAB1: Introduction to PCB Design Using Multisim 7

4.3.26.

Go to the scroll bar on the left hand side of the window until USER is within view and select it.

4.3.27.

Within the Family Tree box, click TRANSISTORS then BJT_NPN. A copy of the
2SA1015 transistor will be shown within the component list.

4.3.28. Go to the bottom right hand side of the Database Management window and click Edit.
A window similar to that shown in Figure 36 will appear. Data under each of the tabs
shown has to be modified.
4.3.29. Under the General tab, change the name of the component to TIP32A.

Figure 36: General tab in TIP32A Component Properties

4.3.30. Next, go to the Model tab as shown in Figure 37.

Figure 37: Model tab in TIP32A Component Properties

27

PCBLAB1: Introduction to PCB Design Using Multisim 7

4.3.31. Set the order of the pins to 1, 2, and 3 in the Pin Mapping Table as shown in Figure 37.
4.3.32. Next, go to the Footprint tab as shown in Figure 38.

Figure 38: Footprint tab in TIP32A Component Properties

Refer to the last page of the TIP32A specification sheet for the package type and pin
mapping information.
Package Type: TO-220
Pin 1 Base, Pin 2 Collector, Pin 3 - Emitter
4.3.33. Enter the pin mapping information under Symbol Pin to Footprint Pin Mapping Table
as shown in Figure 38.
Note that the information for Footprint Manufacturer\Type for the 2SA1015 differs
from the package type of the TIP32A. This issue will be revisited when creating the
PCB.
4.3.34. Click OK. Then OK again. The Database Management window as shown in Figure 39
will now appear with the new component TIP32A.

28

PCBLAB1: Introduction to PCB Design Using Multisim 7

Figure 39: Selecting the newly created TIP32A component

4.3.35. Close the Database Management window.


The two transistors TIP31A and TIP32A have been created. They can now be selected
and placed in the worksheet.
4.3.36. From the menu bar at the top of the worksheet window, select Place Component.
The Select a Component window will appear.

Selection and Placement of the TIP31A


4.3.37. From the Select a Component window, select USER TRANSISTORS BJT_NPN
family TIP31A. Place the component in the worksheet by clicking OK. Place at (Row

4.4. Wiring the Circuit


All of the components in the circuit schematic of Figure 2 have been placed in the worksheet.
The components must now be wired together. This is done by simply joining the component
leads.
It must be noted that the components were placed in predetermined positions on the worksheet.
This will minimize the complexity of the wiring process. It is strongly recommended that the
layout for the circuit schematic, to be created in Multisim, is sketched on paper beforehand. This
will allow the user to determine the layout of the components in the worksheet when creating the
schematic in Multisim.

4.4.1.

Begin by joining the I/O connector J1 and the variable resistor R1. Click on the top lead
coming out from J1 then click on the top lead projecting from R1. A connection should
be automatically created as shown in Figure 41.

Conclusion:
You have just completed the process of entering a schematic into the software environment. This is the
first of two stages that allows you to generate a Printed Circuit Board (PCB) for your circuit design. The
second stage will be undertaken in PCBLAB2 so ensure your circuits are properly saved as they will be
needed in PCBLAB2.
