AWR's New Modelithics Active and Passive Model Library for Microwave Office Incorporates 50+ New Models
September 10, 2012 Press Release
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. and TAMPA , Florida – Sept. 10, 2012 –
the innovation leader in high-frequency EDA software, and Modelithics, Inc.,
the industry leader in simulation models for RF, microwave, and millimeter-wave devices, have announced the
release of Version 9.3 of the Modelithics® COMPLETE Library for AWR’s Microwave Office™ high-frequency design
The Modelithics COMPLETE Library is a collection of the industry's most advanced simulation models
for passive components, transistors, diodes and more. The combined product offerings of Modelithics libraries
alongside AWR's Microwave Office software gives microwave designers immediate access to high-fidelity
parameterized models that better predict real-world behavior when simulated within the AWR design environment,
maximizing the RF/microwave electronic design automation process, reducing design cycle times, and lowering
product development costs.
Version 9.3 increases total library models by 20 percent and introduces more than
30 new global models for Modelithics’ popular surface mount RLC component families from vendors such as AVX,
Coilcraft, Kemet, Murata, Piconics, Taiyo-Yuden and Temex. Additionally, version 9.3 also includes 22 new
non-linear models for diodes and transistors, along with a new model formulation for step recovery diodes embodied
in an Aeroflex/Metelics SRD model.
The release also introduces for the first time Agilent X-parameter® models
into Modelithics’ system-level component (SLC) library for AWR’s Microwave Office design environment. New
transistor models include several gallium nitride (GaN) power transistor models and a 150 W laterally diffused
metal oxide semiconductor (LDMOS) transistor. In addition, the release contains new ultra-broadband mm-wave
models, including 65GHz validated models for Piconics conical inductors and 125GHz validated nonlinear models for
Schottky diodes from Virginia Diodes Inc.
Pricing and Availability The Modelithics’ COMPLETE, CLR, and
small-parts libraries for Microwave Office as well as a new Microwave Office/Modelithics’ COMPLETE bundled
configuration are available today. Contact your local AWR/Modelithics sales representative for a la carte
pricing options and your local AWR sales representative for bundle configuration pricing.
