Symbolic Analysis of Analog Circuits using TINA

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 great number of  electrical engineers find TINA an easy to use, high performance tool, while educators welcome its unique features for the training environment. TINA also includes a unique feature, Symbolic Analysis.

  Symbolic analysis producing the closed form expression of the transfer function

Symbolic analysis produces the closed form expression of the transfer function, equivalent resistance, impedance, or response of analog linear networks. In DC and AC analysis mode, TINA derives formulas in full-symbolic or semi-symbolic form. In transient analysis, the response is determined as a function of time. Circuit variables can be referenced either as symbolic names or by value on a component-by-component basis. Through symbolic analysis, poles and zeros of linear circuits can be calculated and plotted. You can efficiently prepare reports and paper presentations by printing or by copying and pasting your expressions to any Windows program.

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.
