Creation and Simulation of a Capacitance Multiplier circuit with TINA

In this tutorial video we will present how to create and simulate a “Capacitance multiplier” circuit using TINA.  A “capacitance multiplier” circuit can increase the effective value of a small capacitor C1 to a much larger value.

The capacitance seen at Vout is: Cout = C1 * R1/R3. The output capacitance can be verified by placing an AC source in series with a resistor tied to Vout and running an AC frequency response analysis.

We will show later on that the circuit behaves as if the C1 capacitor were multiplied by 1000, in the the R1C1 low pass circuit.

Watch our tutorial video to learn more.

Step by step instructions to create a Logic circuit using the Arduino UNO microcontroller

Arduino is an open-source platform for building electronics projects. It consists of an open source hardware called Arduino board and an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) software to write the MCU control code in a simplified version of C++, then compile and upload the code to the board.

TINA and TINACloud provide an extensive support for Arduino.

You can simulate, debug and bring your design to life in a mixed circuit environment before uploading it to the board.

In the following PowerPoint presentation we will show step-by-step how to create a simple logic circuit using the Arduino UNO microcontroller.

How to analyze circuits in time domain with TINA?

In this tutorial video, we will demonstrate and compare the tools available in TINA, for analyzing circuits in time domain.

In TINA, you can analyze circuits in time domain, employing two different tools:

  • Transient analysis from the Analysis menu of TINA

  • Simulated virtual Oscilloscope from the T&M menu of TINA

TRANSIENT ANALYSIS

The Transient Analysis presents the response of a circuit, to the excitations applied to it, as a diagram, image file or text file.

VIRTUAL OSCILLOSCOPE

In practice, we very often use an oscilloscope to measure, analyze, and debug circuits in the time domain. So, it seems obvious that a simulated oscilloscope can be used in circuit simulation as well.

You can get the same results using Transient analysis and Simulated Virtual Oscilloscope in TINA. The virtual Oscilloscope is closer to practical measurements and can be very well used for interactive fine-tuning of circuits, while the Transient Analysis is simpler to set up and it is the only tool for analyzing large circuits.

How to debug a C program running on the Arduino UNO microcontroller?

In this tutorial video we will demonstrate the use of the MCU Debugger function of TINA by debugging a C program running on the Arduino Uno Microcontroller.

The program changes the LED state, that is lighting it up an off, every 5 milliseconds.  To reach the goal, it uses the millis() Arduino function to count the milliseconds. Every 5 milliseconds the program checks the current state of the LED (HIGH or LOW) and toggles it.

What is TINA Design Suite v11 and TINACloud?

Watch our updated video  about the main features of  TINA v11 and the fully compatible TINACloud, now with English voice-over and subtitles.

 

Visit www.tina.com  now to purchase TINA with 20% discount and get 1 year TINACloud access for free.

Welcome to TINA & TINACloud the powerful yet affordable circuit simulation and PCB design software packages available offline and online.

Tina and TinaCloud are used by more than 100.000 users, in 200 countries and 26 languages.

TINA can be downloaded and installed on your computer while the online TINACloud is running in your browser without any installation and anywhere in the world where internet is available.

Tina and TinaCloud allows you to analyse and design: Analog, Digital, Mixed and RF circuits as well as. Switched Mode Power Supplies, Communication and Optoelectronic circuits

and Microcontroller applications in digital or mixed circuit environment.

In addition to SPICE,  TINA and TINACloud also include 5 major Hardware Description Languages (VHDL, Verilog, Verilog A & AMS, SystemC) for modeling modern, complex integrated circuits in mixed circuit environment such as

SAR and Sigma-Delta ADC

DAC converters with SPI 

Digital power ICs with I2C and PM bus 

Digital filters

Microcontrollers (PIC, AVR, ARM, XMC, Arduino) 

and more.

Another unique feature of TINA is the symbolic Analysis capability. 

Symbolic analysis produces the closed form expression of the transfer function, equivalent resistance, impedance, or response of analog linear networks. In DC and AC analysis mode, TINA derives formulas in full-symbolic or semi-symbolic form. In transient analysis, the response is determined as a function of time.

Circuit variables can be referenced either as symbolic names or by value. Through symbolic analysis, poles and zeros of linear circuits can be calculated and plotted as well. 

TINA supports more than 1000 microcontrollers, including PIC, AVR, 8051, XMC, ARM and Arduino controllers. 

In TINA MCUs can also be simulated in Mixed-Signal Analog-Digital circuits.

The built-in debuggger allows to test your HEX, Assembly or C code step by step, insert break points, view the MCU registers and memory or C statements and value of variables. 

TINA Design Suite is extended with the fully integrated PCB Designer of TINA.

Main Features include the following:

autoplacement & autorouting

“follow-me” trace placement, DRC

forward and backward annotation

pin/gate swapping

keep-in/out areas

thermal relief

fanout, plane layers

Gerber and G-code output

Flexible PCB layout, Enclosure

and more. 

You can also import 3D Enclosures in industry standard formats and visualize your PCB design with Enclosures in 3D.
