Multisim MXP Daughter-board Templates for myRIO


The NI myRIO offers students the opportunity to build stand-alone engineering systems and teach multiple design concepts. NI Multisim provides an environment through which we can design and build custom daughter-baords to create complete solutions to engineering challenges.

Within this document we are providing a template that provides the basis of daughterboard creation as well as a schematic with the appropriate I/O terminals.

Which template do I need?

The NI myRIO comes in two form factors:

NI myRIO Board-Only
NI myRIO Enclosed
Use installed template
Template avalaible within this document

NI myRIO Board-Only Template

If you are using the board-only myRIO this template comes installed with NI Multisim 13.0. The template can be accessed via File » New and selected from within the templates panel.


Daughter-boards for the board-only model mount on top of the myRIO.

NI myRIO Enclosed Template

Attached to this document is Multisim schmatic and a Ultiboard layout that provide a basis for creating daughter boards for the encased myRIO. The template gives you the connectors for the myRIO MXP ports as a starting point for your schemtic and PCB design.
