Electrical Digital Components Overview
This library contains electrical digital components based on the VHDL standard with 9-valued logic and conversion to 2-valued logic.
Digital signals are usually considered to be discrete values such as logic 1 or 0; however, the drive strength (none, weak, or strong) and unknown values of a signal may also be considered.
The following table gives the integer values used by MapleSim for each of the nine states. When a digital signal is plotted, the y-axis corresponds to these integer codes. For example, a digital signal that steps from a forcing 0 to a forcing 1 has a plot that steps from 3 to 4.
