Tool/software: TINA-TI or Spice Models
Does Tina- TI still support importing spice models in .mod form?I can't select my model in the net list editor as it's only giving me the option of .CIR and .LIB extensions.
You should not be using the Netlist editor (File-->Import...). The Netlist Editor is used for importing ready to simulate circuits into TINA-TI, not a single model.
Please use the New Macro Wizard (Tools-->New Macro Wizard...) to create a macro for your individual model along with the symbol and connectivity. It will look for .MOD files when you open the tool.
Additionally, you could simply rename the file to a .lib or .cir extension...

The new Macro still won't recognize my files.I have downloaded the spice models and copied them to a text file(notebook) and added the extension.mod or .MOD but it will not recognize the files.Any idea where I'm going wrong?

I've managed to get Tina to recognize my .mod spice file but now when i try to open it I get the following message: Missing number.Line:#1. .MODEL 2SC5200 NPN(
Here is the model I'm trying to import into the Macro Wizard saved on to my desk top:
.MODEL 2SC5200 NPN (+ IS=3.0463E-11 BF=96.20 VAF=100 IKF=15.04256 ISE=5.6190E-11 NE=2.0 BR=4.849 IKR=1.05012 VAR=100 ISC=7.18E-8 NC=1.5 RE=0.0025+ RB=20.18 RBM=0.0014 IRB=1.0E-7 RC=0.01137 CJE=4.5000E-10 CJC=8.4915E-10 VJC=0.68977 MJC=0.54081 TF=6.8583E-10+ XTF=9.5721 VTF=10.425 ITF=6.8697E-2 TR=1.000E-8 XTB=1.45 EG=0.82 FC=0.5 mfg=Toshiba)
Could someone tell me what to edit in the text so that Tina will accept the model please.
Here is what I used to get the file to import properly.
I believe that TINA did not like the mfg field.
Here is the .TSM file that was created.
Please note that there are several videos on TINA-TI and how to import .MODEL and .SUBCKT devices into TINA-TI. They can be found here:
