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 1: Adding a Simple 5 terminal Operational Amplifier to the Library

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.

Feedback Capacitor Low-Pass Filter Pitfalls

Adding a capacitor in parallel with the feedback resistor of an op amp is an easy way of accomplishing low- pass filtering. This technique works quite well in an inverting  amplifier (see the curves below) but not necessarily in a non-inverting amplifier. If the NI amplifier has high gain, the filtering is not bad– but inferior to the inverting case.  As the NI amplifier gain is reduced, the filter effectiveness suffers. In fact, in a gain of +2V/V, there is only 6dB of stopband attenuation. In a voltage-follower   (gain of +1V/V), there is no low- pass filtering at all! In each amplifier, the value of R2 was stepped logarithmically from 100 ohms to 100k.\e(x,2) (Circuit is created by Neil P. Albaugh, TI-Tucson )
