Vishay Intertechnology Introduces Microwave Resistors that Operate up to 70 GHz

Vishay Intertechnology has announced the availability of new high frequency, broadband resistors in 02016, 0402, and 0603 case sizes. The Microwave Global Models for Vishay Sfernice CH-series resistors are available within the Modelithics COMPLETE Library and mmWave & 5G Library. Modelithics’ measurement-based models offer part value, substrate, and solder pad scalability. They are validated up to 67 GHz and accurately predict parasitic effects based on the model parameter settings, making them well-suited for high-frequency applications.

Features of CH-series resistors:

  • CH-series microwave resistors are unique in their ability to be used up to 50 GHz.
  • Devices in the 02016 case size with ohmic values in the range of 50 Ω to 100 Ω are validated for use at frequencies up to 70 GHz. 
  • This unprecedented performance makes the CH series the unique choice for very high-frequency needs, such as next-generation millimeter-wave 5G networks and radar applications.

The Modelithics model libraries integrate seamlessly with popular electronic design automation (EDA) tools, including Keysight TechnologiesPathWave Advanced Design System (ADS), Keysight Technologies’ PathWave RF Synthesis (Genesys), Cadence AWR Design Environment, Cadence Virtuoso Spectre RF, Ansys HFSS, and Sonnet Suites. As a Sponsoring Modelithics Vendor Partner, Vishay’s customers will receive a free 90-day trial of Vishay data in the Modelithics component library.
