Improved Circuit Design Flow using Modelithics Passive Models

This application note reveals the benefit of combining Modelithics Global Models™ for passive RLC components with AWR’s Microwave Office™ high-frequency design software.

The improved design flow solution maps the impact that individual components have on sub-system performance such that trade-offs can be made with regard to component values and tolerance, enabling lower manufacturing costs and improved yield. The solution requires accurate passive component models that enable yield analysis by means of a tolerance setting, something that is nearly impossible with commonly used S-parameter file-based component representations.
