Electrical engineering:

Electronics Workbench - Makes MultiSim mixed signal analog / digital / vhdl / RF schematic, simulator, VHDL synthesis ( FPGA libraries included in some versions ), pc board layout and auto route tool. Works with analog SPICE and digital models. Can mix all three types on the same schematic, and has VHDL code and test bench creation assist tools. Very easy to pick up on your own, learn and use from intuitive user interface.  

Contains many thousands of schematic and simulation models. Packages range from student and hobby versions to full professional grade packages. You can create simulation models the old fashion way (with a text editor) or using fill in the blank forms.  Simple to do component fault simulation. Waveforms can be viewed in traditional X-Y graphs, digital waveform screens, or with virtual instruments. The package appears designed to help the engineer have the most time for the design, with minimal time spent learning the tool.

Please reference the AutoTips page if you contact this company.
