Limitations / Technology Requirements

Circuit Design Suite 14.2 has the following requirements:

  • Pentium 4M (or equivalent) or later (32-bit)
  • Pentium 4 G1 (or equivalent) or later (64-bit)
  • 1 GB of memory
  • 2 GB of free hard disk space
  • 1024 x 768 screen resolution
  • To develop custom LabVIEW-based instruments for use in Multisim, LabVIEW 2017, 2018, or 2019 Full or Professional Development System is required.

Circuit Design Suite 14.2 supports the following operating systems:

  • Windows 10 (version 1809)/8.1 Update 1/7 SP1
  • Windows Server 2012 R2
  • Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1

What can I expect?

  • Support Tier: Tier 2 - Sponsor Support: If students were to contact IT Help, they refer the user to an individual sponsor, typically an instructor of a given course. The sponsor would work directly with the vendor on any unresolved issues.

  • Acquisition Model: Direct Download: Software is downloaded to a local computer and installed to run from that specific device.

  • Licensing Model: User license server: Miami or the Vendor hosts a license server that the application uses to checkin and validate that you still have permission to use the application. The license server typically has one or more administrators that review and ensure the licenses have been deployed according the terms and conditions of use.

  • Authentication Model: Independent Registration: The user is required to create an account individually with the application vendor.

Who may use it?

25 designated students per semester (50 per year).
