TI's new TINA-TI SPICE simulator 9.1 increases speed 5X

Adds Chinese, Japanese and Russian versions
By Nick Flaherty www.flaherty.co.uk

The latest version of Texas Instruments'  TINA-TI 9.1 SPICE-based analogue design and simulation tool averages a 5X speed increases over version 7.0. This allows engineers to design, test and troubleshoot a broad variety of basic and advanced analogue circuits, including complex architectures, without any node or number of device limitations. 
This version also supports any industry SPICE models, making it easier than ever for engineers to simulate their designs and is available in simplified and traditional Chinese, Japanese and Russian, as well as English.

Key features and benefits of TINA-TI 9.1
  • Support for multi-core processors and an optimized SPICE engine enable TINA-TI 9.1 to run simulations 5X faster on average.
  • Designers can import any SPICE model to easily simulate their designs in TINA-TI 9.1.
  • TINA-TI 9.1 will feature more than 500 part models and reference designs including more than 130 new power models. The broad model coverage and fast simulation in TINA-TI 9.1 make it easier for designers to speed their products to market.
  • TINA-TI 9.1 provides all the conventional DC, transient and frequency domain analysis of SPICE and extensive post-processing capability that allows the user to customize results. Virtual instruments allow users to select input waveforms and probe circuit node voltages and waveforms.
TINA-TI 9.1 is available today from TI for free downloading in the TI Analog eLab Design Center at www.ti.com/analogelab-pr. The center offers support and training for new and experienced engineers who are using analogue products in their applications.
