dc_generator


Name:
dc_generator - provides DC input current
Examples:
The dc current can be altered in the following way:  
/dc_generator Create /dc_gen Set % Creates a dc_generator, which is a node
dc_gen GetStatus info % View properties (amplitude is 0)
dc_gen << /amplitude 1500. >> SetStatus
dc_gen GetStatus info % amplitude is now 1500.0

Description:
The DC-Generator provides a constant DC Input  
to the connected node. The unit of the current is pA.

Parameters:
 
The following parameters can be set in the status dictionary:
amplitude double - Amplitude of current in pA

Sends:
CurrentEvent  

Remarks:
The dc_generator is rather inefficient, since it needs to  
send the same current information on each time step. If you
only need a constant bias current into a neuron, you should
set it directly in the neuron, e.g., dc_generator.
