Tampa, Florida (April 9, 2020) – Modelithics, Inc. and Mini-Circuits have expanded
their partnership by developing new high-accuracy simulation models for several
packaged Mini-Circuits amplifiers.
In total, 14 new substrate-selectable amplifier models have been developed. These
data-based models were extracted by performing broadband S-parameter and noise-parameter
measurements with a Keysight PNA-X vector network analyzer (VNA), as part of a Maury
Microwave ultra-fast noise parameter measurement setup.
Modelithics now offers over 68 models, representing over 130 individual Mini-Circuits
components, that include amplifiers, filters and splitters, among others. All the
new amplifier models are currently available for FREE for use within Keysight Technologies'
PathWave Advanced Design System (ADS). The models can be downloaded from the
MVP page on the Modelithics website. The models are also conveniently available
to all Modelithics Library customers in the newest version, v20, of the Modelithics
COMPLETE Library™ for Keysight ADS. Free 90-day trials of the Modelithics Mini-Circuits
Library are also available for use in other EDA simulation tools through the Modelithics
Vendor Partner (MVP) Program. These tools include AWR Design Environment/Microwave
Office™, Keysight Technologies' Genesys, Ansys® HFSS™, Sonnet® Suites, and Cadence®
Virtuoso Spectre RF.
Larry Dunleavy, President and CEO of Modelithics, said, "We have a very long-standing
and strong partnership with Mini-Circuits and look forward to continuing to add
value with high-accuracy design models that help accelerate design decisions for
Ted Heil, President of Mini-Circuits, added, "We're excited to continue growing
our collaboration with Modelithics to offer more of the best design resources available
to customers using Mini-Circuits products in their applications."
