Signal controlled sources

Description of the Signal Controlled Voltage Source and Signal Controlled Current Source components in Schematic Editor

Signal controlled sources (current and voltage) have an electrical port for connecting them with the electric circuit and a signal processing input port. The value of the sources is defined through that signal processing input.

The update rate of the sources will follow the execution rate of the signal processing control component or sub circuit. It is recommended to use these sources whenever a slower update rate is accepted (for example, for constant sources). In cases where a higher update rate is needed, consider using a Signal controlled sinusoidal voltage source component.
