TINA Alternatives

    TINA is described as 'Design Suite is a powerful circuit simulation package for analyzing, designing, and real time testing of analog, digital, VHDL, MCU, SMPS, RF, communication, optoelectronic and mixed electronic circuits and their PCB layouts' and is an app in the Education & Reference category. There are more than 25 alternatives to TINA for a variety of platforms, including Windows, Linux, Mac, Online / Web-based and Android. The best alternative is KiCad, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like TINA are Fritzing (Paid, Open Source), Circuit Simulator (Free, Open Source), QUCS (Free, Open Source) and LibrePCB (Free, Open Source).
