CHAPTER 4

Simulating Microcontrollers

4.1 INTRODUCTION TO MULTISIM MCU

Multisim MCU is an add-on to Multisim that enables the user to build and simulate circuits based on microcontroller units. The letters MCU stand for Microcontroller Unit Co-Simulation for SPICE-Based Circuits

Microcontroller circuits are capable of handling several tasks (reading/writing data to a memory, interfacing sensors, acquiring real world signals, etc.) based on a program written by the user. Multisim MCU can simulate the behavior of a microcontroller running custom code.

The advantages of programming and testing in a simulated environment are numerous. One of the main benefits of this approach is the ability to run and debug microcontroller circuits interacting with ...
