Creating two-sided PCBs in TINA, part 2: TINA PCB Design Flow

In this tutorial we will demonstrate the PCB design for the circuit we prepared in our previous video: Creating two-sided PCBs in TINA, part 1: Preparing Schematics for PCB Design.

The circuit is also available in the latest version of TINA as  ADC.TSC in the Examples\PCB\ADC folder.

Using the Footprint Editor in TINA: IC Wizard

If you want to create a footprint of an Integrated Circuit the IC Wizard of TINA can assist you.
Activate the IC Wizard from the Insert menu of the Footprint Editor of TINA PCB Designer.  The wizard presents several properties of the IC which you can set.

Using the Schematic Symbol Editor in TINA, Part 1: Making Your Own Schematic Symbols

Using TINA’s Schematic Symbol Editor, you can create new schematic symbols so that you can add your own circuit components to TINA.  To create new symbols, you place lines, arcs, rectangles, and arbitrary characters with any fonts, specifying line-width, color, and area color fills.  After drawing the symbol, you add and define connections to it.

In this tutorial video we will show how you can create a new symbol for the full-adder circuit (that was used previously in our “Creating Subcircuits from Schematics 2- Macro in Macro” video) and use in TINA.

Watch our tutorial video to see how  you can create a new symbol for the full-adder circuit  and use in TINA.
