El Segundo, CA – November 7, 2012
application note reveals the benefit of combining Modelithics Global Models™ for passive RLC
components with AWR’s Microwave Office™ high-frequency design software.
The improved design
flow solution maps the impact that individual components have on sub-system performance such
that trade-offs can be made with regard to component values and tolerance, enabling lower
manufacturing costs and improved yield. The solution requires accurate passive component
models that enable yield analysis by means of a tolerance setting, something that is nearly
impossible with commonly used S-parameter file-based component representations.
The application note, “Improved Circuit Design Flow using Modelithics Passive
Models” can be found online at:
as well as its related ‘flow demonstration’ video on AWR TV:
the innovation leader in high-frequency EDA software, dramatically reduces development time and cost for products
employed in wireless, high-speed wired, broadband, aerospace and defense, and electro-optical applications.
