Linear Current-Controlled Voltage Source: This device is translated as a Symbolically Defined Device. For information on SDD's, refer to Using a Symbolically Defined Device.

Example SPICE Command Line:
h1 vout 0 vname 0.05
SPICE dialect and netlist syntax:

Spice2/3:

hid n1 n2 sourceName value

PSpice:

hid n1 n2 sourceName value
hid n1 n2 poly(1) sourceName value
nonlinear: hid n1 n2 poly(n)...

HSpice:

hid n1 n2 sourceName value
hid n1 n2 poly(1) sourceName value
nonlinear: hid n1 n2 poly(n)...
ADS Netlist Syntax:

SDD:hid n1 n2 F[1,0]=-(value*_c1)+_v1 C[1]="sourceName"

ADS Schematic Symbol:

Instance Parameters:

hid

=

Source element name

n1

=

Positive Node

n2

=

Negative Node

value

=

Transconductance (in mhos).

sourceName

=

Name of controlling source

poly()

=

Polynomial function

Comments:

The following syntax extensions are not supported by the translator. If these keywords or parameters are found, component translation will fail and a warning message will be written to the translation log file.

HSpice Keywords:

PWL, NPWL, PPWL, AND, NAND, OR, NOR, DELAY

HSpice Parameters:

MAX, MIN, SCALE, TC1, TC2, ABS, DELTA, IC, NPDELAY
