4  TINA / Analysis / Re: TINA-TI has a magic voltage source on: September 21, 2014, 05:31:09 AM
No, no, no, this is not that simple, but I agree that this is kind of Magic or better to say an Art Wink You should be aware that circuit (and all) simulation is based on mathematical modelling which never reflects all the characteristics of devices and circuits. This is especially true for opamps which are very complicated inside but in order to reach fast simulation must be modeled in a simpler way. Most opamp models work fine at normal operating conditions but not necessary otherwise, for example without power. The internal independent sources are not to substitute power but for modelling some features at normal operating conditions e.g. saturation, unfortunately they produce some "side effects" like in your circuit. There are more modern modelling techniques and models where this issue has been eliminated, but many existing ICs have older models only.

You can read about this well known issue in more detail in the following TI article:
OPERATIONAL AMPLIFIER MACROMODELS: A COMPARISONhttp://www.ti.com/lit/an/sboa027/sboa027.pdf which states:
"The Boyle macromodel performance characteristics listed above suffice
for many general applications. However, temperature performance, common-mode input range, offset voltage,
offset current, input protection, power supply rejection, noise, THD, input impedance, good ac output resistance, and
change in supply current versus supply voltage are a few of the more important parameters that are not modelled
with the Boyle macro topology. Several op amp vendors have chosen to design their macros around the Boyle topology."

You can see the independent voltage and current sources both int tha article (V1-V8) and in the model in your circuit (Doubleclick and Enter Macro)
vb    9  0 dc 0
vc    3 53 dc .81911
ve   54  4 dc .81911
vlim  7  8 dc 0
vlp  91  0 dc 45.400
vln   0 92 dc 45.400

iss  10  4 dc 56.957E-6

Similar article on this topic from AD:  http://www.analog.com/static/imported-files/application_notes/AN-138.pdf

Another good example, for better understanding the modelling aspects regarding opamps, is the ideal opamp (also included in TINA). This model produces excellent results for many circuits (e.g. integrators, active filters) even though it does not include supply modelling at all, has no saturation, and so it can produce any big voltages and currents (MV, kA end more) if placed not into the normal application circuits or driven not with the normal signals.

I hope this helps

Yes, but no problem  Smiley 

Although we provide backward compatibility ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Backward_compatibility) only like most other software, that is TINA 10 can read any older (4,5,6,7,8,9) versions but not vice versa, for the purpose of data exchange from v8 can Save TSC files in v7 format  with the Save As command (select at the bottom of the Save As dialog) and then open that with TINA v7,8,9 and 10.

But the good portion that today, they can also run TINA on their smartphones and tablets  Wink

Want to try?

Hi Stewart

Ok we will add such an item to our FAQ  available under the Support menu of http://www.tina.com

We will fix these soon and let you know when ready. You can download an upate then. Thank you for your feedback.

We suggest to report bugs on our Technical Support page, which we check 24 hours. This forum is rather intended for sharing tips and tricks between users and we do not check it so often, so bug fixing might take slower when the report is entered here, and might be confusing after the bug is fixed.

Best regards

Michael

If you upgrade from v10 Basic to the v10 Classic version you need to pay the price differece only.

Best regards

14  TINA / Analysis / Re: Tina Needs A PicBasic Editor/Compiler on: January 24, 2014, 05:51:42 AM
Yes of course, now you can update your Classic version and the the microBasic HEX files should work.
If you have any problems with the update from TINA we can send a new download link.
Both me and Tibor sent you an email, didn't you receive it?

Unfortunately since delays are realized by loops, the MCUs work with a very high frequency, and we simulate their operation by software, delays take much longer in TINA then in the real MCU. I suggest to use a shorter delay in simulation and then raise it back when you load the code into the real hardware. This is pretty easy to do in high level languages.
