Power Sampler (Closed Form): PWRSMP



Name Description Unit Type Default
ID Name Text U1
R Port resistance   50

Implementation Details

Simulates a frequency-independent, lossless, directional coupler. The 3-port S parameters are given below.

Inserting this element into a circuit and connecting a resistor to port 3 provides a way to sample voltage or power. The resistor should have the same value as R.


This element uses a special layout cell for a short circuit. The layout cell allows the elements connected on either side of the element to look through this element. For example, when a MLIN is hooked to a TFCM (capacitor) model and the project has bridge code configured, the line draws the proper interconnect between the line and the cap. If this element is placed between the line and the cap, the layout still draws the same.

You typically do not assign artwork cells to these items.
