    Objective

    The objective of this exercise is to become familiar with the TINATM electrical circuit simulation package in order to create simple schematics and perform basic simulations. TINA stands for Toolkit for Interactive Network Analysis and is produced by DesignSoft. The differences between US (ANSI) and Euro (DIN) schematic symbols, and 3D components will be examined along with the use of virtual instruments to make simulated measurements. Please note that the precise look of the windows, menus and dialog boxes may be slightly different from that pictured depending on the version of TINA that is being used. Regardless of appearance, the functionality remains. A free version of TINA, known as TINA-TI, is available from the Texas Instruments web site at https://www.ti.com/tool/TINA-TI
