Modelithics has released four new models for Presidio Components Inc. capacitors. Under the Modelithics Vendor Partner (MVP) Program, both companies collaborated to develop high accuracy, scalable models for Presidio capacitors for the benefit of RF and microwave designers. Presidio is a Sponsoring MVP, supporting free 90-day trials of their component library.

The new surface mount capacitor models added to the Modelithics COMPLETE Library and the new mmWave & 5G Library include those for the 0402 and 0603 Ultra Porcelain families (each validated to 40 GHz), and models for two broadband capacitors, a 10 nF BB0201 and a 0.1 uF BB0402 (each validated to 60 GHz). The BB0201 model, for example tracks particularly excellent insertion loss across the frequency band and all models are useful to accelerate microwave and mmWave design success.

The Presidio MVP free trial library is available in versions for multiple EDA simulation tools such as, Keysight Technologies’ ADS, NI AWR Design Environment/Microwave Office™, Keysight Technologies’ Genesys, ANSYS® HFSS™ and Sonnet® Suites. Request the trial by visiting the Presidio MVP page: and click on “Free Trial”. The effort to make advanced tools available to customers or potential customers illustrates the commitment by Presidio and Modelithics to support and advance RF and microwave design.
