Passive Plus, Inc. (PPI), a Modelithics® Vendor Partner (MVP), is now offering design engineers a free 90-day trial license for the Modelithics PPI Component Library. This will provide PPI customers access to extremely accurate scalable simulation models for Passive Plus capacitors with advanced features that enable a more precise and rapid design process.

The MVP Program promoted collaboration and open communication between PPI and Modelithics during the development of advanced data sets and Modelithics Microwave Global Models™ for PPI capacitors.  Through the MVP Program, PPI is also sponsoring free trials of these models to approved customers.

The Microwave Global Models include every part value in a series and permit users to input substrate thickness, dielectric constant and loss tangent, as well as mounting pad layout dimensions.  Selected models also include capacitor orientation—vertical or horizontal—as an input.  Engineers can request free use of the models, by either visiting the Passive Plus Resources page or the Passive Plus MVP page on the Modelithics® website by clicking on “FREE TRIAL.”

PPI provides technical information and support allowing engineers to determine the correct PPI capacitor for their requirements. Series information, such as series datasheets, S-parameter data, and Modelithics® Modeling Data can be found at PPI’s High Q Capacitors page. Unique part information such as scattering matrices  charts while providing options (case size, terminations, mounting), and parameters (ESR, Q, impedance) along with part and series datasheets can be found on PPI’s website.

Always committed to producing the highest quality product on the market, PPI maintains a fully equipped R&D and testing facility ensuring a wide range of superior high Q capacitors and custom assemblies. PPI works with requesting engineers to determine best assembly for their applications.
