Modelithics Inc., the industry leader in simulation models for RF, microwave, and millimeter-wave devices, announces the release of The Modelithics COMPLETE Library V11 for Agilent Advanced Design System (ADS). The Modelithics COMPLETE Library offers the industry’s most comprehensive collection of advanced and highly scalable simulation models for passive components and non-linear models for active devices such as diodes, transistors, amplifiers and more. They are engineered to provide extensive design flexibility and reliably accurate design simulation results.
Agilent Technologies Inc. introduced the Agilent N1055A 35/50-GHz (8-ps) time-domain reflectometry and transmission module for the Agilent 86100D DCA-X platform. The module provides fast, accurate impedance and S-parameter measurements on high-speed designs that have up to 16 ports.
OML introduces millimeter wave intermodulation distortion (IMD) measurements to target emerging gigabit applications such as WirelessHD, WiGig, 802.11ad and E-band point-to-point radios. In these applications, the linearity of amplifiers and transceivers can adversely affect bit terror rate, especially those involving higher order modulation.
Aeroflex/Inmet Inc. and Modelithics Inc. have teamed to develop Global™ Models for Aeroflex/ Inmet surface mount attenuators (PCAF and PCAAF series) and high power chip resistors (NPC50-50W and NPC50-100W series). The advanced model features include substrate scaling, pad geometry scaling and part value selectability.
OML announces a direct connect configuration that supports millimeter wave S-parameter measurements using the ZVA series network analyzer from Rohde & Schwarz. This entry-level configuration offers engineers the versatility to connect VxxVNA2 series modules directly to the front panel of a four-port dual-source vector network analyzer.
Jon Martens of Anritsu and Al Neves of Wild River Technology used DesignCon 2012 to discuss high-confidence S-parameter measurement methodologies for 15 - 28 Gbpsec.
