AVX Corporation, a manufacturer of passive components and interconnect solutions, has announced a new collaboration with Modelithics, an RF/Microwave simulation model provider, that is intended to significantly expand the range of AVX components available in the Modelithics Passive Component (CLR) Library, System Level Component (SLC) Library, and AVX sub-library, which currently feature over 20 Microwave Global Models for AVX surface mount capacitor and inductor product lines.
This latest collaboration, under the Strategic Modelithics Vendor Partner (MVP) Program, will add 25 more capacitor and inductor Microwave Global Models spanning several technologies and materials sets – such as thin film, multilayer organic (MLO), and ceramic – to the Modelithics CLR Library and AVX sub-library by the end of this year. Highly accurate substrate scalable models for 20 AVX surface mount thin film couplers and MLO diplexers are also in development and will be added to the SLC Library and AVX sub-library upon completion.
AVX component series intended for modelling include: Accu-P Thin Film Capacitors, MLO Capacitors, UQ and SQ Series Microwave ultra-low ESR MLCs, GX Series Ultra Broadband Capacitors, Accu-L Thin Film Inductors, MLO Inductors, Thin Film Couplers, and MLO Diplexers.
All Modelithics AVX component models will be compatible with Agilent ADS, Agilent Genesys, and National Instruments/AWR Microwave Office.
