Hi. I'm trying to get a sawtooth waveform generator, which doesn't seem to exist in Qucs (at least in 0.0.15).
I've tried to achieve this by creating an equation that defines tri=time%1, and then putting a voltage source of value tri, but a transient simulation shows that the source has a constant 0 V. However the value of tri varies according to the formula, giving a pretty sawtooth shape (which apparently I cannot use).
Right now I'm experimenting with a square wave and an integrator, which gives me a triangular wave (symmetric or asymmetric)… Any idea of how could I get a sawtooth waveform generator?
PS: I have previously posted a topic to the forum but has been marked as spam (maybe because of the imageshack pic I used?)
I'm not sure if I can help, but I posted a question over a year ago about using the simulation time variable in simulations. If I understand your post correctly, it looks like you're using the time variable to generate the sawtooth.
Could you paste the file, or provide a link, so that I can look at what you've done? Maybe we can help each other.
Why don't you use "Rectangle Voltage source" ?
For example, set the values as follwings:
homuzo: Thanks! I didn't think of using the rise and fall times for converting a square wave on a triangular one. Good idea!
