Modelithics Inc. welcomed Syfer to the Modelithics Vendor Partner (MVP) Program. Syfer and Modelithics have collaborated to develop a Microwave Global Model™ for Syfer’s 0603 case-size High Q Ultra-Low ESR capacitor family. These simulation models are substrate scalable, part-value scalable, pad scalable, and orientation selectable (vertical or horizontal surface-mount).

“Simulation-ready models like Modelithics Models can save designers considerable amounts of time and money on new designs,” says Steve Hopwood, senior Applications Engineer at Syfer. “For many applications where economical, high performance is required, these new Modelithics Models for our Ultra-Low ESR capacitors will be beneficial to RF and microwave designers. In particular this range of high frequency capacitors is ideal for use in RF power amplifier assemblies, mobile communications, satellite, GPS, automotive, matching networks, and wireless LAN applications.”

Modelithics President and CEO, Larry Dunleavy, added “We are very pleased to welcome Syfer as a new Strategic Modelithics Vendor Partner (MVP) and we look forward to helping designers get great design results with these models.”

The models are compatible with Agilent ADS, Agilent Genesys and AWR/National Instruments Microwave Office. Single substrate S-parameter downloads are available for free from the Syfer MVP page on the Modelithics website. Please visit the Syfer MVP page for more information:
