Another great new tool of TINA PRO v6 is its post-processor.

With the
post-processor, you can add new curves of virtually any node and component
voltage or current to existing diagrams. In addition, you can postprocess
existing curves by adding or deleting curves, or by applying mathematical
functions to them. You can also draw trajectories; i.e., draw any
voltage or current as a function of another voltage or current.
TINA s advanced educational capabilities have also been extended. In addition
to the Bode, Nyquist, Polar, Smith, and timing diagrams, you can now
draw the complex phasor diagram, which is so helpful for demonstrating the
principles of AC circuits. Now you can not only place faults in components,
but into any wire for troubleshooting exercises. You can place and hide
artificial faults in any circuit file and then invoke TINA s troubleshooting
mode when the files are opened.
Of course we also updated this quick start manual, adding the new chapter
describing TINA s advanced features in detail. The new chapter is only available
electronically on the TINA install CD an the TINA website
www.tina.com, where it can be found along with the quick start manual in
the Documentation section ( www.tina.com/support.htm ). Note too that
the component and model descriptions are not to be found in the Quick Start
Manual, but are available in TINA s component help system, which you can
invoke by double clicking on a component and pressing the Help button in
the dialog box that appears. You should also explore the Tutorials in the Help
menu they cover all of TINA s important features.
