Can not connect the output of PWM to a Gate Driver

I am trying to implement BUCK converter using Simscape Electronics. I want to connect the output of a Control PWM Voltage to the input of a Gate Driver. But the system does not accept the connection. Both parts are located in the same library folder: Simscape/Electronics/Actuators & Drivers/Drivers....
Please see the attached figure. Can somebody please help me how to connect both parts? Thank you Victor Castrellon

The input to ' Gate Driver' block can be both a Physical signal input, Electrical input ports.

Current the ' Gate Driver' block that you are using has only a physical signal as input. You need to convert it to electrical input port to connect with ' Controlled PWM voltage block'. To do so right click the block in your block diagram and then select the appropriate option from the context menu, under Simscape > Block choices.
