Port with Saw Tooth Signal: PORT_SAW



This signal source is superseded and should be replaced with one of the following: AC_V for voltage sources, AC_I for current sources, or PORT_SRC for ports, with the Signal parameter set to this signal type.

The period for tone 1 sources is the inverse of the specified simulation frequency; see “Frequency Sweep Control” for details.


Name Description Unit Type Default
P Port number   0
Z Termination impedance Resistance 50 ohm
AMP Open circuit signal magnitude Voltage 0 V
TF Fall time Time 0 ns
TD Time delay Time 0 ns
WINDOW Window type   DEFAULT
DCVal DC Value (Used for DC analysis) Voltage 0
PIN_ID Name identifier for pin Text  

Implementation Details

This is an active circuit termination that applies a load resistance specified by Z while supplying a sawtooth-wave power swept across the frequency range specified for the schematic containing the port. The port number P is set automatically. If PIN_ID is not empty, text displays on the pin when it is instantiated as a subcircuit.


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.
