Source from simulation waveform

009_Source_from_waveform : Source from simulation waveform

Minimum Versions: SmartSpice 4.6.5.R

The first input deck is run and and then you can extract a waveform as a result of the simulation and use this waveform to make a source with the same waveform characteristics. This is very useful when you want to break a circuit up into stages and simulate each stage seperately before doing the full circuit.

The results show the output of the first simulation where the waveform v(3) is used to create a "waveform.DAT" file.

This "waveform.DAT" file can then be used as an input PWL waveform for another simulation. The first stimulus input deck shows how you can use the previously simulated waveform as a stimulus to another circuit. The second stimulus input deck shows how you can use the same stimulus waveform in another different circuit. The results show the output of the second simulation where the original waveform is used to stimulate another circuit.
