Linear Voltage-Controlled Voltage Source (vcvs)

The Spectre vcvs device is translated as an ADS VCVS device.

Example Spectre Command Line:

e1 (out1 0 pos neg) vcvs gain=10

Spectre Netlist Syntax:

name p n ps ns vcvs [param= value ]*

ADS Netlist Syntax:

VCVS: name node1 node2 node3 node4 [param= value ]*

The netlist syntax for ADS is valid only when using the backward-compatibility option (-bc option). The order of nodes is reversed because Spectre components list the output node pair first, followed by the input node pairs.
