I kind of thoroughly Googled before posting this question for seeking help from you guys!
The "vsin" source (in analogLib) of Cadence has many parameters:
i) AC magnitude, AC phase, DC voltage
ii) Offset voltage, Amplitude, Frequency,...
Question 1: Internet resources are indicating that parameters in (i) are for AC analysis, while that in (ii) are for Transient analysis - IS THIS TRUE? - because, I have seen in Cadence that changing the "AC phase" led to change in the Transient output waveform - is it so that the "AC phase" field is common between AC and Tran analyses?
Question 2: what is the use of the "DC voltage" in (i) above? - because, I am seeing that people are setting this to '0 V' most of the times without any explanation!
