Tetrode is an extended component and is not supported by classic processors.


The following figure illustrates an alternative circuit design to achieve a signal equivalent to the output of the Tetrode component without using the component itself. This example is for users who wish to achieve the same operation as Tetrode using lower order components on a Classic Processor.

The corresponding voltage threshold for each input channel can be controlled by modifying the Thr# tag value tied to the K parameter of each Compare component.
