Implementation Details

This model is identical to PNIV, except that it includes SPICE noise sources. The noise model is identical to that of SDIODE.


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.
