TINA is one of the most powerful and best converging Spice simulator on the market. It includudes both Berkely Spice and XSpice based Spice engines, supports 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.
TINA includes models for modern DAC and ADC converters (SAR and Sigma-Delta) of leading manufactures (Analog Devices, Maxim Integated and Texas Intruments) with parallel and SPI interface. Now you can add IBIS modells to analyse signal integrity. Note modeling ADCs and DACs of high... complexity is a unique feature of TINA as very few software on the market can simulate complete DACs and ADCs at all.
TINA 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.
TINA also includes a wide range of microcontrollers (PIC, AVR, 8051, HCS, ARM, ST, Arduino, XMC), more then 1400 parts, which you can test, debug and run interactively in mixed circuit environment. 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.
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 electroniccircuits, 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.
You can also optimize your circuit with the built in Design Tool of TINA working with Design Equations which you can add to any circuit.
TINA also includes a powerful PCB designer software. The fully 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 andmuch more. You can also import 3D Enclosure models in industry standard formats, visualize along with your PCB design and print in 3D.
In addition to the classic analysis tools, TINA includes a wide range of virtual instruments: Oscilloscope, Function Generator, Multimeter, Signal Analyzer/Bode Plotter, Network Analyzer, Spectrum Analyzer, Logic Analyzer, Digital Signal Generator, XY Recorder, Efficiency-, Average... value- and Frequency meters. You can use these virtual instruments to make simulated measurements on your circuit in TINA or, if supplementary hardware is connected to your computer, turn your laptop or desktop computer into a powerful real-time test and measurement instrument and make measurements on real circuits.
TINA is much more than a circuit simulator with virtual instruments. Using the LabXplorer & TINALab II high speed PC instruments you can turn your laptop or desktop computer into a powerful, multifunction test and measurement instrument. Whichever instrument you need multimeter,... oscilloscope, spectrum analyzer, logic analyzer, arbitrary waveform generator, or digital signal generator it is at your fingertips with a click of the mouse. In addition TINALab II can be used with TINA for comparison of simulation and measurement results as a unique tool for circuit development, troubleshooting, and the study of analog and digital electronics.
TINA also includes unique tools for testing students’ knowledge, monitoring progress and introducing troubleshooting techniques using its educational capabilities. 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.

I have used many different "flavors" of Spice over the past 25 years. Over the last several years, my use of spice has been infrequent. Having to go back and relearn/recall how to use most spice tools is a chore. Tina, however is so intuitive that it takes virtually no time to get going again. In my experience it is, by far, the most intuitive and easy to use simulation tool on the market. It is ideal for the novice or occasional user AND it has all the capability a power user would need.

I’ve used many simulators, but none as easy to use or as fast as TINA. TINA’s multi-core support and enhanced convergence algorithms make simulation blazingly fast. I’ve modeled CM, VM, adaptive on-time converters of virtually every topology – resonant, PWM and quasi-resonant and simulations complete in seconds that previously took minutes! TINA’s interactive mode, symbolic analysis, interpreter, wizards, and design tools make TINA even more powerful! Import PSpice models seamlessly!

I have taught analog electronics at university level, using many different Spice front-ends - since it was a ‘deck of cards’. Over the last decade or so TINA has been my preferred circuit capture and analysis tool for electrical teaching, project work and some professional applications. TINA is intuitive to use, supportive in the process of correcting errors, and produces results very quickly. TINA has powerful analysis tools which assist in the understanding of circuit operation. It also has a very direct route to circuit realization. Our students adopt TINA as a versatile tool in their first year of electronic design and apply it throughout their degree course. It represents very good value.

I have taught electrical engineering, electronics and Computer-Aided Design (EDA) for more than 40 years at Moscow Technological University (MIREA). In my classes I have used numerous programs for modeling electronic circuits - from Electronics Workbench to OrCAD and SystemC. I am confident that for teaching electrical engineering and electronics TINA is the best software available. TINA has a very friendly graphical user interface, with simple settings and setup of simulations. All information about the circuit is enclosed in a single file, simulations are performed very quickly and accurately, with results displayed, so the process is easily mastered by students.
