Tampa, Florida (May 15, 2017) –
The latest release of the Modelithics COMPLETE
Library™ for NI AWR Design Environment™, version 17.1, is now available, containing 44 new models
and introducing several new model features.
New advanced scalable simulation models for RF and microwave components
from twenty (20) different vendors have been added to the version 17.1 release, including Microwave
Global Models™ for capacitors from ATC, AVX, IPDiA (now part of Murata), Johanson Technology, KEMET,
Murata, ST Microelectronics, and Taiyo Yuden. New inductor models are available for Coilcraft, Piconics,
and Würth Elektronik series, new resistor models are available for KOA Speer, and new ferrite bead models
have been added for two Chilisin series. Additional non-linear active device models are now included
for transistors from Avago, Infineon and Mitsubishi, for a PIN diode from MACOM, and for amplifiers
from Mini-Circuits, Avago, and Qorvo. A single-substrate S-parameter model has also been added for a
Vanguard Electronics inductor series.
The Modelithics Library, version 17.1, is compatible with the latest V13 release of NI AWR Design
Environment, specifically Microwave Office circuit design software, and includes multiple new features
that add even more flexibility and control while using the models in Microwave Office designs. The dynamic
layouts of Modelithics models now use Area Pins, which enables connections to the pads at any location.
Four new features have been added to most Microwave Global Models: The Pad_Angle parameter allows the
designer to specify the 90° rotation angle at which each model pad should be connected to the line.
Pad_in_Model provides several options for what percentage of each model pad should be included in the
simulation and layout. Finally, new Solder_Mask and Solder_Paste parameters are available in the dynamic
layout models which allows these layout layers to be added and adjusted in relation to the pads and
then included in the layout.
