Modelithics, Inc. announced the release of version 23.5.1 of the Modelithics Qorvo GaN Library for use with Keysight Technologies’ PathWave Advanced Design System (ADS) and Cadence AWR Design Environment®. This latest version offers new models for Qorvo’s QPD1025, QPD1028, QPD1425 and QPD1425L discrete GaN-on-SiC HEMTs. Version 23.5.1 also offers two new embedding models for the T2G6000528-Q3 and T2G6003028-FL devices.
The QPD1025 is an 1800 W device intended to operate from 0.96 to 1.215 GHz, while the QPD1028 is a 750-W device intended to operate from 1.2 to 1.4 GHz. The QPD1425 and QPD1425L are 300 W devices intended for operation from 1.2 to 1.4 GHz. All four of the new models are Angelov-based models that include features like temperature scaling, self-heating effects and intrinsic I-V sensing.
The new embedding models for the T2G6000528-Q3 and T2G6003028-FL devices make it possible to design power amplifiers (PAs) without comprehensive load-pull analysis. They enable a new waveform-based PA design strategy that begins with the desired intrinsic waveforms. The models then enable direct synthesis of the multi-harmonic impedances needed for the desired intrinsic waveforms. A suitable matching network can then be designed.
Through the Modelithics Vendor Partner (MVP) Program, the Modelithics Qorvo GaN library is available free to qualified customers.
