Modelithics has added Syfer’s Ultra-Low ESR range to their component modelling library. These models will allow design engineers to accurately simulate the performance of these multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCCs) in circuit simulations. They are the first addition to Syfer’s Modelithics Component Model Library and are fully integrated with a range of software applications including Agilent ADS, Agilent Genesys, and AWR Microwave Office.
Modelithics provides simulation models for RF, microwave and millimeter-wave devices. The company offers comprehensive measurement and modelling services, as well as highly accurate, scalable measurement-based models that integrate seamlessly with popular electronic design automation (EDA) tools. Modelithics Global Models reliably track how each component”s performance will change with substrate characteristics and automatically scale all substrate-sensitive parasitics with nominal part value, enabling a single model to generate accurate simulations of a complete component family.
“Simulation-ready models like Modelithics Models can save designers considerable amounts of time and money on new designs,” says Steve Hopwood, senior Applications Engineer at Syfer. “For many applications where economical, high performance is required these new Modelithics Models for our Ultra-Low ESR capacitors will be beneficial to RF and microwave designers. In particular this range of high frequency capacitors is ideal for use in RF power amplifier assemblies, mobile communications, satellite, GPS, automotive, matching networks, and wireless LAN applications.”
Modelithics President and CEO, Larry Dunleavy, added “We are very pleased to welcome Syfer as a new Strategic Modelithics Vendor Partner (MVP) and we look forward to helping designers get great design results with these models ”.
The Syfer Ultra-Low ESR capacitor range utilises a very stable High Q ceramic material to give excellent low loss performance in systems over a wide temperature range from -55°C to +125°C. To offer increased reliability with superior mechanical performance Syfer’s FlexiCap termination system option is available along with various other termination options. RoHS-compliant finishes are standard. Parts are available taped and reeled as well as bulk packaged.
