Modelithics And MACOM Collaborate To Offer New Modelithics Enhanced, Highly-Accurate Power Divider, Coupler And Balun Models

Modelithics the leading provider of RF/microwave simulation models and MACOM Technology Solutions Inc. (MACOM), a leading supplier of semiconductor products, are pleased to announce the release of new models for three MACOM components: the MAPD-011062 power divider, the MACP-011088 bi-directional coupler, and the MABA011125 balun. Each model is a substrate selectable S-parameter data model valid through 50 GHz. The new models are available within the Modelithics COMPLETE Library as well as the Modelithics mmWave & 5G Library.

Both the MAPD-011062 power divider and the MABA-011125 balun come in a 3-mm, 16-lead QFN package, while the MACP-011088 bi-directional coupler comes in a 4-mm, 24-lead QFN package. The models for all three parts were developed based on multi-port S-parameter measurements with calibration referenced to the edges of the bonding pads on the package.

Measurements of all three components were performed on both 6.6- and 10-mil Rogers 4350B substrates to enable substrate selectable models to be created. Designers can select either of the two substrates within the model parameters. Applications for the MAPD-011062 power divider, the MACP011088 bi-directional coupler, and the MABA-011125 balun include test and measurement, military communications, and multi-band radios.

The Modelithics COMPLETE Library and the mmWave & 5G Library are available for Keysight Technologies’ PathWave Advanced Design System (ADS), Keysight Technologies’ PathWave RF Synthesis (Genesys), Cadence AWR Design Environment, and other simulators.

Through the Modelithics Vendor Partner (MVP) Program, FREE 90-day trials of all Modelithics models for MACOM components in the Modelithics COMPLETE Library are available. For more information or to request a free trial of all the Modelithics MACOM models, visit:
