Please find attached TINA symbol/model that I generated from the un-encrypted PSPICE available on the web.

It would be nice if you could please added this simulation model to the design resources tab on the product page so that anyone wanting to use TINA to simulate this can do so without having to import it and then fix TINA's auto generated symbol.
Webench doesn't support this part as far as I can tell.
The feedback I got is that we should be able to have unencrypted models in the product folder for most of the LDOs. There is no reason for us not providing the ones that customers need for simulation. I am not sure how soon this will happen but I will surely provide this feedback to the teams in charge.
The model I attached is imported into TINA from the unencrypted PSPICE model on the product page. I'm just hoping to save you all and some future customer some time when using TI's supported TINA simulator.
I'm surprised that the team didn't already have a TINA version, so I made one for you.
Yes, thanks for posting. From my understanding, most of the models provided on TI website is PSPICE based, and the users need to do the conversion to use it with TINA if the model is not already in TINA database. I agree, it would be much easier for users to be able to download TINA model directly from TI website.
This varies by product group. For instance, the amplifier teams are much better about publishing TINA models along side the PSPICE. It is possible to encrypt TINA models as well, so sometimes the only way we can use the TI provided simulator is to have a TINA model created by the product group.
It is not possible to import encrypted PSPICE into TINA.
In this case, I was able to use the available unencrypted PSPICE to import into TINA.
Please ask your team to better support the simulator that TI provides! It makes for a very valuable tool for supporting customers.
Thanks, Best, Steve
Thanks for providing your feedback and it makes great sense. This is definitely one of the areas we can make it better for our customers and save our support time. I will bring this up to the App and Marketing team and see how we can have more converted TINA models uploaded for our products.
In the meantime, if you have any other suggestions, please do not hesitate to either post it on E2E or send me direct email.
