AVX expands partnership with Modelithics



AVX, a leading manufacturer of passive components and interconnect solutions, has expanded its partnership with Modelithics, a leading RF/Microwave simulation model provider, with the addition of 45 new Modelithics substrate scalable equivalent circuit models. Designed to speed up design decisions and circuit level optimizations when used in combination with the industry's leading electronic design automation tools, including Keysight Advanced Design System (ADS), Keysight Genesys, and NI AWR Microwave Office, highly accurate, substrate scalable models are now available for AVX thin film couplers, multilayer organic (MLO) diplexers, and a variety of RF/Microwave capacitors and inductors.

Component models now available in the Modelithics System Level Component Library (SLC) include AVX's family of thin film RF/microwave directional couplers and its MLO diplexers for WLAN/BT, CDMA, WCDMA, WLAN, and WLAN/BT wireless standards. RLC component families now available as Microwave Global Models in the Modelithics CLR Library include Accu-P thin film chip capacitors for RF signal and power applications, Accu-L SMD high Q RF inductors, UQ Series high Q/ultra low ESR microwave MLCCs, SQ Series ultra low ESR microwave MLCCs, GX Series ultra broadband capacitors, MLO capacitors, and tight tolerance, high current, and high Q MLO inductors.

"AVX is committed to providing our customers with advanced design tools, so we are very pleased to announce our newly expanded partnership with Modelithics. Modelithics' highly accurate and scalable models provide our customers in the RF/microwave systems market with the ability to easily and accurately develop comprehensive circuit simulations of their proposed designs using proven models of an ever-expanding range of AVX microwave products, which effectively saves them both time and money and helps accelerate their time to market," said Edgardo Menendez, Field Applications Engineer at AVX.

Additional Modelithics models for AVX components, including those for its GPS/WLAN diplexers and 30W, 3dB, 90 MLO hybrid couplers, are currently in development and will be added to the SLC Library upon completion.

Approved customers are eligible for 90-day free access to all AVX models courtesy of AVX and the Modelithics Vendor Partner (MVP) program. To request access, please visit here. All existing subscribers to The Modelithics COMPLETE Library who are on active support will receive the new models automatically with the next release or, for immediate updates, can contact support@modelithics.com to receive access to the latest AVX custom sub-library model installer.
