 If only one MSUB is present in the schematic, this substrate is automatically used. If multiple MSUB substrate definitions are present, the user must specify.
MSUB indicates the name of the MSUB element to use for substrate characteristics. If blank, a default is used. The reference planes for the nodes are indicated by the dashed lines. The width of the line at both nodes is given by W. The amount of bend is given by ANG.
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.
