class ipkiss3.all.FunctionExcitation(*args, **kwargs)

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: optional

Port domain (i3.OpticalDomain/i3.ElectricalDomain)

cell_instances: _PCellInstanceDict, optional

name: optional

The unique name of the pcell
