Spice Simulation with TINA
TINA Design Suite is a powerful yet affordable Spice based circuit simulator and PCB design software for analyzing, designing, and real time testing of analog, digital and mixed electronic circuits and their PCB layouts. You can also analyze VHDL, MCU, 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 unique feature of TINA is that you can bring your circuit to life with the optional USB controlled TINALab II and LogiXplorer hardware, which turns your computer into a powerful, multifunction T&M instrument. Electrical engineers will find TINA an easy to use, high performance tool, while educators will welcome its unique features for the training environment.
TINA uses advanced algorithms and models fully compatible with the 3F5 Berkeley Spice, XSpice, PSpice and other Spice based programs. This allows efficient handling of manufacturer’s device models, directly available in TINA’s graphic components.
TINA has large libraries containing Spice models provided by semiconductor manufacturers such as Analog Devices, Texas Instruments, National Semiconductors, and others. You can add more models to these libraries using TINA’s intelligent Library Manager whether obtained from manufacturers’ CD, downloaded from the Internet or created by yourself.
