This circuit component models a ground conductor having a rectangular cross section. The model is implemented as a lumped element series inductor and resistor whose values are derived from the dimensions and resistivity of the ribbon.
This element does not have an assigned layout cell. You can assign artwork cells to any element. See “Assigning Artwork Cells to Layout of Schematic Elements” for details.
Discontinuity models function most accurately when attached to lines that match their corresponding edges. Directly connecting discontinuity models to one another reduces their accuracy.
