Modelithics, the leading provider of RF/microwave simulation models, and Tecdia, a leading provider of high-tech electronic components, announced the release of new models for Tecdia’s HBCR22AY20X10X5A02 and HBC2R2KY20X10X5A02 varactors. The new models are available within the Modelithics COMPLETE Library™ as well as the Modelithics mmWave & 5G Library.

The HBCR22AY20X10X5A02 and HBC2R2KY20X10X5A02 surface-mount dielectric varactors are made with Tecdia’s proprietary voltage-controllable dielectric. These components are designed to control impedance in a wide range of applications up to millimeter-wave frequencies. Common applications for the varactors include tunable phase shifters, tunable matching networks, tunable filters and voltage-controlled oscillators.

The new Modelithics models for the HBCR22AY20X10X5A02 and HBC2R2KY20X10X5A02 varactors are measurement validated up to 110 GHz. Validation measurements were made in reverse and forward bias (−25 to +25 V) over temperatures −40°C to +85°C. As a result, the models are bias-dependent and scale with respect to substrates and temperature.

Through the Modelithics Vendor Partner Program, FREE 90-day trials are available for the Modelithics models for Tecdia components.
