Modelithics and Coilcraft Collaborate to Offer New Microwave Global Models™ for High Frequency Conical Inductor Series
Modelithics, Inc. and Coilcraft Inc. have teamed to develop two new Microwave Global Models™ for the Coilcraft BCL and BCR RF and microwave inductor families. Modelithics Microwave Global Models are high-accuracy equivalent circuit models that cover an entire component series within a single model. These powerful models, unique to Modelithics, feature substrate, pad and part value scalability (or selectability), and accurately predict parasitic effects based on the model parameter settings. These features allow designers to simulate condition-specific response of their designs electronically and perform advanced analysis of their designs with efficiency and accuracy.
The new BCL (flying lead) and BCR (surface mount) Series inductor models each come in two versions for series and shunt configurations. Each model is measurement-validated to 50 GHz and includes all available part values in the series. The models are also substrate scalable over a range of material thickness and dielectric constant properties, a very important feature in high frequency design.
As a member of the Modelithics Vendor Partner (MVP) program, Coilcraft is sponsoring FREE 90-day licenses for use of all Coilcraft inductor models in the Modelithics library, including the new conical models and more than 35 additional Coilcraft wirewound chip and air core inductor families. The models are now available for easy installation and use in five popular microwave simulation tools: Keysight ADS, Keysight Genesys, NI AWR Design Environment, ANSYS HFSS and Sonnet Suites.

About Modelithics, Inc.
Modelithics, Inc. (www.Modelithics.com) was formed in 2001 to address the industry-wide need for high-accuracy RF and microwave active and passive simulation models for use in Electronic Design Automation (EDA). Modelithics’ premium product is the Modelithics® COMPLETE Library, which includes the CLR Library™, containing measurement-based Microwave Global Models™ for a multitude of commercially-available passive component families, the NLD Library™ (non-linear diode models) the NLT Library™ (non-linear transistor models), and the SLC Library™ (system level component models). Modelithics’ services also address a wide range of custom RF and microwave measurement and modeling needs. Modelithics® is a registered trademark of Modelithics, Inc. Microwave Global Models™, CLR Library™, NLD Library™, NLT Library™, and the SLC Library™ are also trademarks of Modelithics, Inc. The Modelithics Vendor Partner (MVP) Program allows for collaboration and open communication during the development of advanced data sets and models for commercially available microwave components and devices, with flexible sponsorship and distribution arrangements for the resulting data and models.
