Use the data plotter to pull external data into the grapher. It can then be compared against simulated results.
You can place a data plotter by itself, on a design with other components, or on a design with other components and probes.
The data plotter gets data from an external
.csv file that is referenced from the data plotter's properties. If the referenced file contains data for more than one plot, you must select the one to display.
The data plotter supports Transient and AC sweep simulation.
The remainder of this topic uses the example below. Its simulation results were previously downloaded as a
.csv file from Multisim Live (
RC filter.csv). This file contains the data for two plots; PR1: V(1) and PR2: V(2).
Referencing a data file
RC filter.csvis used in this example.
Tip. Use multiple data plotters and referenced data files to compare different simulation types. The data plotter plots that appear on the grapher will be those whose Data type matches the selected simulation type. The total file size for all data plotters in a design cannot exceed 100 MB.
