Import SPICE model into TINA TI.

One of the most popular programs for simulating electronic circuits is PSPICE. Most manufacturers of electronic components do not have their own simulation programs. But in order to facilitate the work of engineers, they provide PSPICE models of their products. Fortunately, we are not limited only to PSPICe. In this post I will show you

[TINA-TI] Sweeping parameters.

One of the incredible advantages of electronic circuit simulation programs is the ability to see how our circuit will behave when we change the parameter of an element in a circuit. And it’s even better if we can see on one chart the circuit response to different values of this element’s parameter. Let’s see how

OpenScope MZ

Recently I became the owner of Digilent’s OpenScope MZ measuring board. Every electronics, whether amateur or professional, needs to measure different electrical values. Sometimes it needs to generate a waveform at a given frequency. And even if he is a professional, he does not always need professional oscilloscopes or generators for such things. Sometimes simpler

Encoder – how to use it?

Most devices communicate with users in some way. Sometimes it is a blinking LED. Sometimes displaying a message on the display. Sometimes it is a requirement to press a button. And another time you turn the knob of the potentiometer. Another way to communicate with the user is the encoder. What is an encoder? The

Script generating project files

I mentioned in one of my posts about how I call my projects. It’s about naming folders, schemes, PCB designs and BOMs (Bill Of Materials). I used to do everything manually by myself. I created a folder, created the schema as a new one and saved it under the proper name. I did the same

TINA-TI – adding an element model to the schema.

I wrote about how to add elements to the schematic in LTSpice in this article: http://sigaris-electronics.eu/2018/11/ltspice-adding-an-element-model-to-the-schema/ . In this post I will describe how to add an element in Tina-TI from the official model from Texas Instruments.
