RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed
formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit
design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at
the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps
while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
Mail" when a new message arrived...

Tampa, Florida (December 12, 2017) –
Modelithics is pleased
to share the news and congratulate Dr. Thomas Weller, the company's co-founder,
on being named IEEE Fellow by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
This high designation is given by the IEEE Board of Directors to persons having
a history of significant accomplishments in the fields of electrical engineering.
Dr. Weller has been recognized for his extensive contributions in the area of advanced
RF and microwave modeling techniques for surface mount and passive IC electronic
The research done by Dr. Weller and Dr. Larry Dunleavy, Modelithics co-founder
and CEO, resulted in an advanced scalable microwave simulation model technology,
termed "Modelithics Microwave Global Models™" along with state-of-the art transistor
and diode and behavioral modeling methods that became the basis for what is now
the Modelithics COMPLETE Library™. Dr. Weller is currently a professor and chair
of the Electrical Engineering Department at the University of South Florida, and
is still involved with Modelithics as Chair of the Board of Directors.
Modelithics, Inc. (www.Modelithics.com) was formed in 2001 to address the industry-wide
need for high-accuracy RF and microwave active and passive simulation models for
use in Electronic Design Automation (EDA). Modelithics' premium product is the Modelithics®
COMPLETE Library, which includes the CLR Library™, containing measurement-based
Microwave Global Models™ for a multitude of commercially-available passive component
families, the NLD Library™ (non-linear diode models) the NLT Library™ (non-linear
transistor models), and the SLC Library™ (system level component models). Modelithics'
services also address a wide range of custom RF and microwave measurement and modeling
needs. Modelithics® is a registered trademark of Modelithics, Inc. Microwave Global
Models™, CLR Library™, NLD Library™, NLT Library™, and the SLC Library™ are also
trademarks of Modelithics, Inc. The
Partner Program allows for collaboration and open communication during the development
of advanced data sets and models for commercially available microwave components
and devices, with flexible sponsorship and distribution arrangements for the resulting
data and models. An example of such an arrangement is the
GaN Library, a fully sponsored library distributed for free by Modelithics under
sponsorship of Qorvo®.
