    Now that the vcvs component from analogLib allows you to specify "vmax" and "vmin" for the outputs, you can build the world's simplest ideal comparator just by giving a vcvs a very high gain (say 1,000) and specifying the desired maximum and minimum output voltages. 
     
    (Earlier versions of the analogLib parts did not allow max/min outputs to be specified.)

    The same structure can be used to generate a square or clock of required frequency with Sinusoidal input. PWL source canot be used for creating squrewaves of exactly required fundamental frequency.

    I m in inverter tutorial and getting error =
    xi0.m1: Effective length is less than or equal to zero.

    I changed the L & W to a certain range but it did not help.

    Moreover for an another project i need to vary L & W to a certain range and see its graph simultaneously ... Can i do this? I know i can vary dc ac voltage and all that in analysys section but how can i do this in case of physical parameters such as Length and Width?
    Can i vary the performance by changing any other parameter?
    Thanks fr suggestion
