Electrical Mode Properties

In electrical mode, only properties with certain values and data can be entered, and only to objects corresponding to library devices or subcircuit instances.

These properties are generally applied with the Property Editor from the Properties button in the Edit Menu. However, the most frequently used properties, such as those that set device parameters, have values that are shown on-screen as text labels. If one edits the label, the underlying property value is changed as well. This is generally more convenient than using the Property Editor. Labels are edited by first selecting a label by clicking on it, then entering the label command by pressing the button in the side menu.

A description of the electrical properties used by Xic, including the property string syntax, is provided in D.2.

See the description of the Property Editor for a listing and discussion of the properties that can be added with the Add menu.

Properties of the current call can be added or modified with the Cell Property Editor from the Cell Properties button in the Edit Menu, and are listed in the Add menu of the editor. See the Cell Property Editor description for a list and discussion of these properties.
