Swept Variable Control: SWPVAR



The SWPVAR simulation control is used in schematics to indicate the variable and the values to use during a swept parameter analysis. The values must be real.


Name Description Unit Type Default
ID Element ID Text SWP1
VarName Name of variable to sweep String ""
Values Vector of values Vector (real) {0}
*Unit Type Unit type (used for plotting only, and when sweep values are in base units) Enumeration (pull-down)  

* indicates a secondary parameter

Parameter Details

VarName. Name of the variable to sweep. The variable must be defined in the schematic.

Values. Vector of values used for sweeping the variable. See the discussion on vector notation in “Swept Parameter Analysis ” for information on the variety of methods to define a vector.

The values are assumed to be in base units.

Unit Type. The units are applied to the swept variable for plotting purposes only. Units should only be used when the swept variable is specified in base units.


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.

Recommendations for Use

See “Swept Parameter Analysis ” for detailed information regarding swept parameter analysis, and “Built-in Functions ” for a table of swept functions.
