Offline Circuit Simulation & PCB Design with TINA Design Suite
TINA Design Suite is a powerful yet affordable circuit simulator and PCB design software package for analyzing, designing, and real time testing of analog, digital, HDL, MCU, and mixed electronic circuits and their PCB layouts. You can also analyze SMPS, RF, communication, and optoelectronic circuits; generate and debug MCU code using the integrated flowchart tool; and test microcontroller applications in a mixed circuit environment. A unique feature of TINA is that you can bring your circuit to life with the optional USB controlled TINALab II and LabXplorer hardware, which turns your computer into a powerful, multifunction T&M instrument. Electrical engineers will find TINA an easy to use, high performance tool, while educators will welcome its unique features for the training environment.
TINA is an acronym of "Toolkit for Interactive Network Analysis.

TINACloud also serves as an engine of Infineon Designer the first online prototyping application combining analog and digital simulation functionalities in an internet application. Requiring a web browser only, it is a perfect match for supporting customers in selecting the right product for a defined application. Infineon Designer works intuitively in a very short time, and neither installation nor licenses are needed. The program features application circuits in the domain of Industrial Power, Lighting, Motor Control and Mobile/RF frontend design. It enables analogue/digital co-simulation of the 32-bit XMC1000 industrial microcontroller ARM Cortex-M0 series, using the free-of-charge code generation platform DAVE.
TINA has one of the most powerful and best converging Berkely Spice and XSpice based Spice circuit simulator engine on the market, supporting most Spice dialects with parallelised processing and precompiled models. In addition to the large Spice component libraries in TINA, you can create new TINA components from any Spice subcircuit, whether created by yourself, downloaded from the Internet, obtained from a manufacturer's CD or from portions of schematics turned into subcircuits. TINA automatically represents these subcircuits as a rectangular block, but you can create any shape you like with TINA's Schematic Symbol Editor. You can also use TINA's parameter extractor program to calculate model parameters from catalog or measurement data and then add the new devices into the catalog.
HDL Circuit simulation
TINA now includes all major analog, digital and mixed Hardware Description Languages: VHDL, Verilog, Verilog-A, Verilog AMS and SysteC to verify designs in analog, digital and mixed-signal analog-digital environments. Your circuits can contain editable HDL blocks from the libraries of TINA and Xilinx or other HDL components created by yourself or downloaded from the Internet. TINA compiles HDL into highly efficient machine code or you can use precompiled SystemC components for speed optimization. You can freely combine HDL and Spice macros and the schematic components of TINA. Also you can edit the HDL source of any HDL components then simulate and see the result instantly. With the built in HDL debugger you can execute the HDL code step-by-step, add breakpoints, watchpoints, display variable information and more. In addition to the large component libraries in TINA, you can create new TINA components from HDL subcircuits.
Microcontroller (MCU) Circuit Simulation
TINA includes a wide range of microcontrollers (PIC, AVR, 8051, HCS, ARM, XMC) which you can test, debug and run interactively. The built in MCU assembler allows you to modify your assembler code and see the result promptly. You can also program and debug MCUs with the built-in flowchart tool or in C, using external C compilers and other code generators, including Microchip XC8, MATRIX FLOWCODE, Infineon's DAVE for XMC & Arduino.
Super-fast Multi-core Circuit Simulator Engine
Every year, electronic circuits become faster and more complex, and therefore require more and more computational power to analyze their operation. To meet this requirement TINA v9 has the ability to utilize the increasingly popular scalable multi-thread CPUs. Computers that incorporate dual or quad core CPUs can deliver up to 20-times faster execution time for TINA's analysis engine compared to previous versions and main competitors.
Open from the Web!
Now you can open TINA designs, models and libraries as well as Import Spice .CIR and .LIB files directly from the Web. See our TINA Circuits on Web page where you will find interesting electronic circuit files and links to other websites with circuits and libraries which you can open directly from the web and then simulate with TINA.
Easy to use schematic entry
Enter any circuit within minutes with TINA's easy-to-use schematic editor. Enhance your schematics by adding text and graphics elements such lines, arcs arrows, frames around the schematics and title blocks. Choose components from the large library containing more than 20,000 manufacturer models. You can check schematics for errors with TINA's advanced ERC functions. The schematic editor supports complex hierarchical designs, team design and version control. Using the Macro Wizard of the Schematic Editor you can simplify schematics and hide clutter by turning portions of the schematic into subcircuits.
Powerful analysis tools
Analyze your circuit through more than 20 different analysis modes or with 10 high tech virtual instruments. Present your results in TINA's sophisticated diagram windows, on virtual instruments, or in the live interactive mode where you can even edit your circuit during operation, develop, run, debug and test HDL & MCU applications.
This powerful tool works with the design equations of your circuit to ensure that the specified inputs result in the specified output response. The tool offers you a solution engine that you can use to solve repetitively and accurately for various scenarios. The calculated component values are automatically set in place in the companion TINA schematic and you can check the result by simulation. This new feature is also very useful for semiconductor and other electronics component manufacturers to provide application circuits along with the design procedure.
Using TINA's built-in Optimization tool unknown circuit parameters can be determined automatically so that the network can produce a predefined target output values, minimum or maximum. Optimization is useful not only in the design of electronic circuits, but also in teaching, to construct examples and problems. It is a very good tool to refine the results provided by a design procedure or tune already working circuits.
Integrated PCB design
The new fully integrated layout module of TINA has all the features you need for advanced PCB design, including multilayer PCB's with split power plane layers, powerful autoplacement & autorouting, rip-up and reroute, manual and "follow-me" trace placement, DRC, forward and back annotation, pin and gate swapping, keep-in and keep-out areas, copper pour, thermal relief, fanout, 3D view of your PCB design from any angle, Gerber file output and much more. You can also import 3D Enclosure models in industry standard formats, visualize along with your PCB design and print in 3D.

TINA PCB Design Flow
Make stand-out reports and presentations of schematic diagrams, annotations, formulas provided by symbolic analysis, Bode plots, Nyquist diagrams, poles and zeros, transient responses, digital waveforms, and other data using linear or logarithmic scales. Customize presentations using TINA's advanced drawing tools to control text, fonts, axes, line width, color and layout. You can create, edit and print documents directly inside TINA or cut & paste your results into your favorite word processing or DTP package.
Educational tools. TINA also includes unique tools for testing students' knowledge, monitoring progress and introducing troubleshooting techniques. With optional hardware it can be used to test real circuits for comparison with the results obtained from simulation. With the Live 3D breadboard tool you can automatically build a life-like 3D picture of a solderless breadboard. When you run TINA in interactive mode, components like switches, LEDs, instruments, etc. become "live" and will work on the virtual breadboard just as in reality. You can use this capability of TINA to prepare and document lab experiments. You can also use the integrated Flowchart Editor and Debugger to generate and debug the MCU code, learning and teaching microcontroller programming.
