MCROSS2$ is a Microstrip iCell and has no parameters. See “Intelligent Cells (iCells)” for more information.
|W1||Conductor width @ Node 1||Length||W|
|W2||Conductor width @ Node 2||Length||W|
|W3||Conductor width @ Node 3||Length||W|
|W4||Conductor width @ Node 4||Length||W|
Where Wx is W1, W2, W3, or W4:
Wx > 0
T > 0
H > 0
Er <= 50
0.02 <= Wx/H <= 8.0
A junction of four microstrip lines. The reference planes for the junction are the ends of the respective lines; that is, the reference plane at any node is the side of the widest of the lines connected to that node. MSUB indicates the name of the MSUB element to use for substrate characteristics. If blank, a default is used.
This element uses line types to determine its layout. By default, the layout uses the first line type defined in your Layout Process File (LPF). You can change the element to use any of the line types configured in your process:
Select the item in the layout.
Right-click and chooseto display the Cell Options dialog box.
Click the Layout tab and select a Line Type.
Clickto use the new line type in the layout.
See “Cell Options Dialog Box: Layout Tab ” for Cell Options dialog box Layout tab details.
See “The Layout Process File (LPF)” for more information on editing Layout Process Files (LPFs) and to learn about adding or editing line types.
Discontinuity models function most accurately when attached to lines that match their corresponding edges. Directly connecting discontinuity models to one another reduces their accuracy.
