    Hi,

    I am using Qucs on Windows. I am trying to create a nonlinear inductor in Qucs, parameterized in the coefficients of its polynomial expression. Independent variable is current.
    When I try a Spice netlist such as:
    * SPICE 2g6 nonlinear inductor
    .subckt LN 1 2 params: l0 l2
    L1 1 2 poly l0 0 l2
    .ends LN
    .end

    Qucs gives me an error about unexpected behavior. Is the nonlinear inductor not supported? Can I pass parameters to Spice netlists in Qucs?
    I tried replicating the same component in EDD but with no success.

    Any help and advice would be appreciated,

    Thanks.

      Hello!

      Actually SPICE 2g6 POLY L's should be understood by 0.0.15 version of Qucs.  I am going to check your example.  What is not supported (yet) are subcircuit parameters (as in the above example).

      Regards, Stefan.

        Hi Stefan,

        Is this why I'm having trouble with this BFP640 model from Infineon? I am still using version 15, do the newer versions support the subcircuit?

        Thanks

        Kevin
