How Earbuds are Made – An Inside Look at a Headphone Factory.

Have you ever wondered what it takes to make earbuds? AudioSpice gives you a glance into the production aspect of making headphones in a China factory. In this short tour you will see some of the machines, and work that’s involved. A lot of us wear earbuds on a daily basis, but have no idea how they are made. Audio Spice gives you an inside look.

Mouser contributes SPICE simulator to MultiSIM Electronic Circuit Board tool

The most current MultiSIM BLUE version of the NI Multisim circuit card design software tool which is made available from Mouser Electronics is the Advanced version incorporates a Berkley SPICE simulation environment.

SPICE (Simulation Program with Integrated Circuit Emphasis) is a general-purpose, free analogue electronic circuit emulator. It is a program utilized in integrated circuit(IC) and board-level design to examine the integrity of circuit card designs and to estimate circuit behavior.

This can be utilized to design and imitate circuits previous to laying them out in physical prototypes.
As well as to help with setting up schematics, hierarchica design features have already been incorporated therefore engineers can easily incorporate classification blocks in place of a circuit and then repeat it in other parts of the design for them to save time frame.

The cutting edge Advanced version even comes with forward and backward annotation functionality, permitting engineers to move improvements from a schematic to a PC board layout environment or from layout to schematic.

Mouser Electronics has been providing the MultiSIM BLUE costless PWB design tool, brought to life by National Instruments, for 2 years.

The NI MultiSim Component Evaluator by Mouser works by using the Berkeley SPICE simulator engine and contains a preloaded component library via the distributor’s linecard.
MultiSIM BLUE supports pre-layout design convergence analysis and mixed-signal simulation, and can handle electronic components as sophisticated as BGAs with around 1,000 pins on-pin-pitches down to 0.8 millimeters.

The software tool as well provides a 3D visual images of the PCB board without limits on the size and shape of the printed circuit board. The PCB board layout attribute permits as many as 64 layers, and is also appropriate for standard output file types like Gerber 274X and 274D, DXF, 3D DXF, 3D IGES and also IPC-D-356A Netlist for convenient design output and affirmation.

The Mouser community supplies the engineer with instructions, downloads, educational videos and subscriber communities.
