Modelithics and IMS Unveil New Models for Attenuators and Resistors

Modelithics and International Manufacturing Services (IMS) have completed the development of eight new broadband Microwave Global Models for IMS attenuator and resistor families. The models were developed through the Modelithics Vendor Partner (MVP) Program under a 6-year collaboration plan recently established between the two companies.

New models are now available for the following IMS components: RC3-0402PW, RC4-0302PW, and NDX-1020EZW high-frequency resistor families, A-0402WA-C/IMS2652 and A-0603-C/IMS2533 high-frequency attenuator families, and the VDR-3725SG very high-power attenuator series. The VDR-3725 attenuator model is validated up to 2 GHz, while all other attenuator and resistor models are validated to 40 or 50 GHz. The new models are substrate scalable, pad scalable and part value scalable, with the exception of the 50-ohm single-value NDX-1020EZW resistor model. The models are available for use with multiple EDA tools, including Keysight ADS, Keysight Genesys, NI AWR Design Environment/Microwave Office, ANSYS HFSS, Sonnet Suites, and Cadence Spectre RF.

IMS is a Sponsoring Modelithics Vendor Partner (MVP) and as part of this program, is sponsoring FREE 90-day trials of all available Modelithics models for IMS components. For more information about the new models, and to request the free trial, click here.
