1  TINA / Analysis / Re: analysis results window on: September 26, 2010, 04:28:11 PM
Sounds strange. Can you submit please your TSC file, so we can reproduce the problem?
2  TINA / Analysis / Re: NewMcroWizard dialogBox dosent show all on: July 16, 2010, 06:23:28 AM
This problems appears only if the Windows character size is 120 DPI (Large font). Set it back to the default 96 DPI and problem will go away.

We will fix that in the TINA, thank you for our feedback.
3  TINA / Analysis / Re: How can I simulate faster ? on: July 16, 2010, 05:47:51 AM
Your computer is fine. But you should upgrade to the latest v9 of TINA which has multi-core support. TINA v7, released more than 5 years ago, uses just 1 of the 4 cores you have. With TINA v9 you can get up to 10-20 times faster execution depending on your circuit and the diagrams will appear instantly. By the way TINA v9 runs much faster than TINA v7 or v8 even on single core computers.

You can also make further speed imprevements by changing the default Analysis Parameters. Send us your .TSC file if you need help regarding that.

Please submit your request under Technical Support at with more details including your order an the copy of the link you have.
5  TINA / Schematic Editor / Re: Schematic editor suggestions on: May 23, 2010, 04:22:16 AM
Good suggestion, thank you.

I will discuss that with the developers, and I hope it will be added to v9 soon.

6  TINA / Analysis / Re: Irregular Circuit on: May 22, 2010, 05:38:50 PM
This circuit has no DC working point, which is OK for SMPS. Set "Zero initial value" at the Transient Analysis dialog, and the Transient Analysis will work. Nice circuit!
7  TINA / Schematic Editor / Re: TINA Schematic Wish list on: May 22, 2010, 05:31:55 PM
Thank you for your suggestions. Some of them already done, see below, the rest will be addressed later.
1) Done in TINA v9
2) It is dome for for many parameters in v8 and v9, see the checkboxes on the right of the property windows
3) In v9 the Getting Started tutorial is over 200 pages. The descriptive user guide in included in the Help of the program.
8  TINA / Analysis / Re: Reverse saturation current modelling, Tina8 on: April 23, 2010, 04:13:59 PM
We still work with the generally used Spice 3F5 diode model.

Regarding new features of the latest TINA along with the features of the last few versions, you can find the list at our TINA website under the title What's New?

9  TINA / Analysis / Re: Simulation of PIC12F509 on: April 23, 2010, 02:57:17 PM
PIC12F609  is available in the full Educational and Industrial versions of TINA.

We are not aware of any unanswered Technical Support request.

Can you send the tracking number or submit your request again? We will help.


11  General / General Discussion / Re: TINA V.9 on: March 09, 2010, 01:19:48 PM
We do not want to specify the release date before it is absolutely sure. Most likely Q2 of 2010.
12  TINA / Analysis / Re: TINA equivalent of PSPICE function LIMIT on: January 16, 2010, 04:47:10 AM
Thank you for your feedback! Wink
13  General / General Discussion / Re: General greetings on: January 16, 2010, 04:44:07 AM
Yes my previous reply was regarding the school bell project, which looked like a homework assignment.

The main purpose of the forum to help users to communicate with each others. Therefore if somebody needs an urgent unswer for a technical problem regarding the use of the program, it is better to submit it to our Technical Support, where we do our best to reply within 1-2 days. We do not guaranatee the same for the questions asked in the forum, although if nobody replies to a question within a week, we do eventually.

14  General / General Discussion / Re: General greetings on: January 13, 2010, 06:09:59 AM
Sorry but this project (designing control circuit for an automatic school bell) is beyond the scope of this forum as far as DesignSoft is concerned. If you create the circuit with TINA and have problems with its simulation, still we are happy to help, but rather through our Technical Support services.
15  TINA / Analysis / Re: AC power meter on: December 25, 2009, 10:33:05 AM
Sorry to say so but the fault is kind of the same in your second calculations. The formulas u used are for RMS, yet you substituded the Amplitude (pek value) used in the VM3 generator. I have added the time diagram and a table showing the Amplitude and RMS for VM3. Note that you can obtain this table using Analysis/AC Analysis/Table of AC results and then clicking to the VM3 Instrument with the cursor.

The terminology used here: Amplitude: The peak value of the sine/cosine function ,  RMS: Amplitude/sqrt(2) approx. Amplitude*0.707

If you recalculate with the RMS value of VM3 which is 282.84V in this case, then you get the same value as calculated by TINA.

Alternatively you can keep your calculations which are for peak values (amplitudes) but use slighty different formulas for power:
P=0.5 * Upeak * Ipeak * cos(fi)
Q=0.5 * Upeak * Ipeak * sin(fi)

For circuits with sine or cosine excitations of the same frequency, the basic instruments in TINA show the amplitude. If you have more frequencies and/or DC in the same circuit then the RMS value is shown, but with an rms tag after the value.

I hope this helps.

Merry Christmas
