Description

Use the Circulator block to model ideal passive three-port circulators in a circuit envelope environment.

Dialog Box and Parameters

Main Tab

Select component
  • Circulator clockwise

    The default option is Circulator clockwise. The s-parameter matrix for Circulator clockwise is:

    [001100010]

    When you select this option, the following parameter is available:

    • Reference impedances (Ohm)

      Specify the reference impedances of Circulator clockwise as a scalar or three-tuple. The default values are 50 Ohms.

  • Circulator counter clockwise

    The s-parameter matrix for Circulator counter clockwise is:

    [010001100]

    When you select this option, the following parameter is available:

    • Reference impedances (Ohm)

      Specify the reference impedances of Circulator counter clockwise as a scalar or three-tuple. The default values are 50 Ohms.

Ground and hide negative terminals

Select this option to internally ground and hide the negative terminals. Clear the option to expose the negative terminals. By exposing these terminals, you can connect them to other parts of your model.

By default, this option is selected.
