AWR Corp., the innovation leader in high-frequency EDA software, and Modelithics Inc., the industry leader in simulation models for RF, microwave, and millimeter-wave devices, have announced the release of Version 9.3 of the Modelithics® COMPLETE Library for AWR’s Microwave Office™ high-frequency design software.

The Modelithics COMPLETE Library is a collection of the industry's most advanced simulation models for passive components, transistors, diodes and more. The combined product offerings of Modelithics libraries alongside AWR's Microwave Office software gives microwave designers immediate access to high-fidelity parameterized models that better predict real-world behavior when simulated within the AWR design environment, maximizing the RF/microwave electronic design automation process, reducing design cycle times, and lowering product development costs.

Version 9.3 increases total library models by 20 percent and introduces more than 30 new global models for Modelithics’ popular surface mount RLC component families from vendors such as AVX, Coilcraft, Kemet, Murata, Piconics, Taiyo-Yuden and Temex. Additionally, version 9.3 also includes 22 new non-linear models for diodes and transistors, along with a new model formulation for step recovery diodes embodied in an Aeroflex/Metelics SRD model.

The release also introduces for the first time Agilent X-parameter® models into Modelithics’ system-level component (SLC) library for AWR’s Microwave Office design environment. New transistor models include several gallium nitride (GaN) power transistor models and a 150 W laterally diffused metal oxide semiconductor (LDMOS) transistor. In addition, the release contains new ultra-broadband mm-wave models, including 65GHz validated models for Piconics conical inductors and 125GHz validated nonlinear models for Schottky diodes from Virginia Diodes Inc.
