Modelithics and Vishay to introduce new models for high frequency capacitor families

September 25, 2015

Modelithics Inc., a leading RF/microwave simulation model provider, announces a new partnership with Vishay, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of discrete semiconductors and passive electronic components. As part of a Strategic Modelithics Vendor Partner (MVP) project, Modelithics and Vishay are collaborating to develop two new Microwave Global Models™ for the Vishay VJ HIFREQ 0402 and 0603 surface mount RF and microwave capacitor families.

Modelithics Microwave Global Models are high accuracy equivalent circuit models that cover an entire component series within one model. These powerful models, unique to Modelithics,  feature substrate, part value and pad scalability, and accurately predict parasitic effects based on the model parameter settings. These features give designers the ability to perform advanced analysis of their designs above and beyond the capabilities when using s-parameter file-based models.

The new Vishay capacitor models will be included in the Modelithics COMPLETE Library for Keysight ADS, Keysight Genesys, and NI AWR Design Environment.  The VJ HIFREQ 0402 and 0603 families will be an excellent addition to the existing Vishay capacitor and resistor models already in the Modelithics Library and listed on the Vishay MVP page on the Modelithics website (http://www.modelithics.com/mvp/Vishay). Modelithics and Vishay are working closely through the MVP program to ensure that the resulting models are of highest quality for designers.
