Take a look at the examples here:


You can specify a terminal current (such as R1.nA) and a gain.

Thank you. What if I want to Multiply that Current by 2?

Then you just need to make the gain k of the CCVS be 2 if you want 2 V/A. (This is shown as 2 Ohms because the units of the transimpedance are Volts per Amp, which equals Ohms.)
