Modelithics announced the release of the newest version, version 20.6, of the Modelithics Library for use with the Cadence® Spectre® Simulation Platform. Version 20.6 includes 23 new circuit simulation models and enables RF design excellence.

New scalable models in the Modelithics Library include passive models for the AVX MP01, MP02, and MP03 capacitor families, the ATC 504L resistor series, the Coilcraft 0402DC, 0805HP, and 0805LS inductor families, the DLI C04BL121X, C04UL, C06CF, and C08BL102X capacitor series, Exxelia SHF251xxx capacitor series, and the Johanson L-14C and L-14W inductor families. Also included are models for the Murata LQP03HQ inductor series and GQM1555C capacitor series, the Vishay VJ0402 capacitor series and the CH02016, FC0402, CH0402, MCT0603, CH0603, CRCW1206, and MA0204 resistor families, and the Würth Elektronik WE-CAIR 5910 inductor series.

The Modelithics Library is comprised of a large selection of highly scalable Microwave Global Models™ of passive components. The library is an indispensable collection of simulation models for all types of passive RF and microwave devices engineered to enable designers to go from concept to product faster and easier. These models for surface mount devices are a must-have for anyone involved in PCB-based RF and microwave circuit or module design.
