Using the Footprint Editor in TINA, part 2: Setting and checking footprint names

In this video we will present how to check and set the mapping between TINA’s Schematic Symbols and the Footprints used in TINA’s Integrated PCB Designer

Start TINA

Assume we have created a macro of an existing IC and now we want to assign a PCB Footprint to it, so we can use the part in PCB design.

Click the Insert menu

Select Macro

From the Macrolib folder open the MAX11166.TSM

Double-click the macro

Click the …  in the Footprint Name field

We will create a user package database to store the symbol and footprint pin pairs.

Package database will be created in the Private Catalog folder.

Check in the Create Library button

Enter the name: MyPackageDB

Click the Create Library icon

Press the Add icon

then click OK to add the MAX11166 to the Component list

Next, click the Add button under the Footprint list

Select MyPackage from the Library list, then click the appropriate footprint SON12_3x3_0.5_TP and click OK

Note: we will use the previously created footprint (see our video: Using the Footprint Editor in TINA: IC Wizard)

To set the pin pairs click the Add button next to the Node list

We will match the pins based on the MAX11166 pin configuration

Click OK

Click OK again

Now the PCB Footprint is associated with the macro.

If you open the TINA PCB Designer the PCB Footprint of the part will appear

Open the TINA PCB Designer

The PCB Footprint of the part appears
