Homework Help: Can you design digital multisim components?

  1. May 4, 2013 #1
    Hi guys,

    Just wondering if there Is a way in multisim to design your own components from scratch? basically starting with the input and output pins and you fill in the gate logic on the inside.

    Im designing an old school binary-BCD for 12 bits. ive got the theory all figured out, and I have to use like 12 of this custom component ive made. which is basically a 4 bit bin-BCD converter using all AND OR and INV gates. and my 4 bit converter made of logic gates takes like 15 gates. and I need 12 of them in my final converter. which will blow the component limit out the door.

    So I wanna know is there a way for me to take my 15 gate logic and make an IC out of it that I can then use in multisim?


    PS ive tried component wizard but it doesn't let you build the circuit. just screw around with existing ones, which I also havnt really worked out cause I didn't wanna waste my time with it

    nevermind. scratched that. split it into 4-bit sections and did each one seperately
