I've been trying to get a Colpitts oscillator to work with multisim, following this schematic, which I found in a book (I just copied it):
Yet, it does not work, all I get is a 0 voltage signal from the oscilloscope.
The same circuit, simulated in LTSpice, worked fine:
So, does anyone with experience in multisim know how to get this simulation to work? A similar oscillator in the "examples -> miscellaneus circuits -> claposcillator" works great, adn the book where I found it also simulated it in Multisim and according to it, simulation works fine as well (book is Electronic devices eighth edition, by Floyd, page 84X)
Here are some of the things I've tried:
- Add a AC voltage source with low voltage to simulate noise
- Change the values of the capacitors to the ones in the LTSpice figure
- Try different transistors and components
