class ipkiss3.all.FunctionExcitation

Component that can be placed in a circuit (attached to an existing port) to send a signal into the chip. The signal is a function of time.

The port domain can be either optical (i3.OpticalDomain) or electrical (i3.ElectricalDomain).

See also the tutorial on implementing circuit models in IPKISS.

excitation_function: function, required
port_domain: List with value restriction, allowed values: [OpticalDomain, ElectricalDomain]

Port domain (i3.OpticalDomain/i3.ElectricalDomain)

name: String that contains only ISO/IEC 8859-1 (extended ASCII py3) or pure ASCII (py2) characters

The unique name of the pcell
