Introduction

Using the Library Manager of TINA, Part 3: Adding complete Spice libraries in .MODEL format, now with English voice over

Semiconductor device manufactures often provide models for their components in .MODEL format. These are normally placed in a text file (also called library) containing many .MODEL instructions.

In this tutorial video we will show how to add such libraries to TINA. Of course you can also create your own models in .MODEL format and add to TINA in a similar way.

Using the Library Manager of TINA, Part 2: Adding a Complete Spice Library, now with English voice over

In most cases adding a Spice library to TINA is very simple. Using the comments in the models, everything is automatically recognized in the Library Manager and adding a whole library to TINA takes a few minutes only.

In the following tutorial video after showing this general case we will also show how to add models where it is not possible automatically to find the connection between the Spice models and their graphic symbols.

Watch our tutorial video to see how to add a whole Spice library to TINA.

Using the Library Manager of TINA, Part 1: Adding a Simple 5 terminal Operational Amplifier to the Library now with English voice over

TINA has large libraries containing Spice models provided by semiconductor manufacturers such as Analog Devices, Texas Instruments and more.
You can add more models to these libraries or create your own Spice library using TINA’s Library Manager (LM).

Watch our tutorial video to see how to add a Spice model to TINA’s Spice libraries.

New! Analysis links in TINACloud

A new exciting feature in TINACloud that now you can add links to your circuits which allow you to carry our most TINACloud analyses simply by clicking the links without using TINAclouds’s menus. This feature is extremely useful when you create presentations for your customers.

 

 

In the above window click any of the underlined links to experience the new feature.

For example if you click the “Click here to run AC nodal analysis” link the following screen will appear.

AC Node voltages

By default is shows the rms voltage on the output(s). If you click with the cursor on any nodes (yellow boxes) of the circuit it will display the detailed nodal analysis data in a small window. Click You can repeat this any times until you press the Close button to finish the Nodal Analysis.

Further if you click the “Click here to run AC transient analysis” link, the Transient analysis will automaticall run and the following screen will appear. You can now run cursor on the diagram or close the diagram and make further analyses.

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.
