Tool/software: TINA-TI or Spice Models
How do I run a simulation in TINA-TI?

In order to find a TINA-TI model for a device, please check the product folder for that device and look under the "Tools and Software" tab. Alternately, you can find all available models from TI through the link in this FAQ page.
In general you will find 2 files related to TINA-TI in the product folders - TINA-TI Spice Model (TSM) and TINA-TI Reference Design (TSC).
TSM is the TINA-TI Spice Macro. This is essentially the model for the device. In order to use this in TINA-TI, you can open a new schematic in TINA-TI (File --> New or "Cntl + N" shortcut), then click on Insert --> Macro and point to the TSM file. This will place the spice model in your TINA-TI schematic. After this you can draw the circuit around this model and simulate it.
However, TI provides a much more easy way to get started with the simulations by providing the TINA-TI Reference Design (TSC). This is a schematic containing the spice model (TSM) plus a reference design around that model with all simulation parameters already setup for best accuracy and simulation speed. All you have to do to see typical performance is to run the simulation (from "Analysis" in the Menu bar). If you need to make tweaks to the design, this offers a very easy and convenient way to do so rather than drawing up the entire circuit manually.
