Introduction

Using Hardware Description Languages in TINACloud, Part 1: Creating Macros from VHDL

Hardware Description Languages (HDL) are powerful tools to describe and simulate complex electronic devices.

In this tutorial video we will show how you can create a macro from a VHDL (.vhd) code and use     in TINACloud. You can create macros from Verilog, Verilog-A and Verilog-AMS files in a similar way.

Watch our tutorial video to see how  you can create a macro from a VHDL (.vhd) code and use         in  TINACloud.

Using the Library Manager of TINA, Part 3: Adding complete Spice libraries in .MODEL format

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.

Watch our tutorial video to see how to add diodes.lib to TINA’s catalog available for part (device) selection.

Using the Library Manager of TINA, Part 2: Adding a Complete Spice Library to TINA

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.
