Tampa, Florida (February 15, 2017) – Modelithics, Inc. is pleased to announce the latest release,
of the Modelithics® COMPLETE Library version
17.0 for use with the Keysight EEsof EDA Advanced Design System (ADS) simulation software. This release
marks another big milestone with over 15,000 commercial electronic components from over 65 different
vendors now represented in the COMPLETE Library of advanced simulation models.
17.0 release contains 34 NEW MODELS, in addition to the already extensive collection of high accuracy,
scalable parasitic simulation models. New Microwave Global Models™ for passive RLC components include
those for AVX, ATC, IPDiA, Johanson, KEMET, Murata, Taiyo Yuden and ST Microelectronics capacitors,
Coilcraft and Würth Elektronik inductors, KOA resistors and Chilisin ferrite beads. A non-linear diode
model has been added for a MACOM PIN diode as well as non-linear transistor models for Infineon and
Mitsubishi devices. A new Mini-Circuits amplifier X-parameters* model is available, and Modelithics
is introducing coaxial connector models with the new substrate-scalable Gigalane flange-mount SMA connector
simulation model, validated to 18 GHz. Several new S-parameter file-based models for Vanguard Electronics
inductor families are also included in this release.
The latest features offered in the Modelithics v17.0 library for ADS include solder mask and solder
paste parameters for models with dynamic scalable pads in the CLR Library. These parameters can be set
within the models and will translate to PCB layers in the layout. The MSUB blocks in the Modelithics
Substrate Library also have these layers, as well as "package" and "leads" layers for increased layout
layer control. See the release notes for more information.
Modelithics offers a FREE evaluation library, Modelithics SELECT+, which can be downloaded from the
Modelithics website. A more comprehensive trial and university use library, Modelithics EXEMPLAR, is
also available by request and represents a subset of models in the Modelithics COMPLETE Library, containing
all models needed to run the many example projects found on the Modelithics website and as part of the
standard installation of the Modelithics COMPLETE Library.

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 Modelithics Vendor 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 Modelithics Qorvo GaN Library, a fully sponsored library distributed
for free by Modelithics under sponsorship of Qorvo®.
