The recent update to the Modelithics® COMPLETE+3D Library for Ansys® HFSS™ contains an extensive number of measurement-based models for components from many popular vendors. Version v21.1 now includes over 325 highly scalable Microwave Global Models™ for capacitor, inductor and resistor families, with a collection of nearly 400 3D models for inductors, capacitors, resistors, filters, packages and connectors - totaling more than 22,000 individual components in the library.

Developed by Modelithics, the Microwave Global Models are advanced circuit models that are part value scalable, i.e., a single model covers the full range of part values for a vendor component series, making the models well-suited for tuning and optimization during simulation. The Microwave Global Models also scale with respect to the solder pads and substrate used for the next level of assembly.

Several of the new Microwave Global Models in v21.1 of the Modelithics COMPLETE+3D Library are the 1) AVX 1206xC capacitor series, validated to 20 GHz; 2) Taiyo Yuden HKQ0603S, HKQ0603U and HKQ0603W inductor families, with each model validated to 50 GHz; and 3) TDK CGA1A2C0G, CGA1A2X7R and CGB1T3X5R0J104M capacitor families, each validated to 50 GHz.

Another benefit of the Modelithics COMPLETE+3D Library is the collection of full-wave, 3D electromagnetic (EM) models. In v21.1, 3D EM models were added for the QFN4424-0522 package from Barry Industries and three conical inductors from Piconics. These models are validated to mmWave frequencies, enabling them to be designed into 5G, satellite ground terminal, point-to-point radio and other high frequency systems.
