Modelithics Joins GLOBALFOUNDRIES RFwave Partner Program

Modelithics, a leader in high-frequency simulation models and precision RF, microwave, and mmWave measurement services, is now a member of the GLOBALFOUNDRIES (GF) RFwaveTM Partner Program. The partnership between GF and Modelithics will enable mutual clients to accelerate the launch of new products, based on accurate testing results and the ready availability of Modelithics to assist GF and its clients in modeling activities.

GF’s RFwave program is an ecosystem of partners that provide unique mmWave test and characterization capabilities along with design services, IP, and EDA solutions that enable designers to build highly optimized RF solutions for a range of wireless applications such as Internet-of-Things (IoT), wireless connectivity, 5G, and automotive radar.

Modelithics successfully demonstrated their RF/microwave/mm-wave testing services by performing noise parameter characterization from 2 GHz to 50 GHz on GF’s 130nm RF-SOI platform and noise, S-parameter, including IP3 testing on GF’s 22FDX (22nm FD-SOI) platform with 28 GHz LNAs over a temperature range from -40 to 125 degrees Celsius.

They provide a wide range of custom measurement services from DC through 170 GHz including S-parameters, noise parameters, 1/f noise, load/source pull testing, CW, and pulsed I-V, X-parameters1, etc. Modelithics also supplies test fixtures, wafer probe compatible test fixtures and related calibration products.

Moreover, Modelithics specializes in developing equivalent circuits, black-box, and 3D EM models for all types of linear and non-linear microwave and millimeter-wave devices. In addition to custom wafer/chip-level models for MMIC/RFIC designers, they offer an extensive library of commercial discrete device models that integrate seamlessly into industry-leading circuit simulators that enable first-pass success for board and module designers.
