Piconics and Modelithics have released new broadband, 0.04 to 65 GHz, data and models for a six different conical inductor products. Measured data, acquired using series and shunt mount fixtures, is now available for free download from the Modelithics web site at >www.modelithics.com/mvp/Piconics/ . Broadband equivalent circuit models for these same conical inductor products were also developed and will be included with version 8.0 of Modelithics COMPLETE Library of active and passive microwave component models. Version 8.0 of Modelithics COMPLETE Library is anticipated in Q1 with compatibility options for Agilent Advanced Design System and Genesys, as well as AWR Microwave Office Software.

Brian Goodhue, VP of Engineering at Piconics, said, “Our customers have been requesting broader-band data and models for our popular conical inductors and we were very pleased to be able to provide this updated design information for them through our partnering with Modelithics.”

Modelithics President and CEO Larry Dunleavy said, “We are delighted to add Piconics as a new Modelithics Vendor Partner (MVP) this year and look forward to supporting our mutual customers efforts to improve their design efficiency through better data and models for critical components such as are available from Piconics.”
