Vishay Intertechnology Announces the Availability of Modelithics Broadband Microwave Global Models™, Extends the Frequency Range of CH Series Microwave Resistors Up to 70 GHz

MALVERN, Pa. — Nov. 24, 2020 — The Optoelectronics group of Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced the availability of new broadband Microwave Global Models™ for Vishay Sfernice CH series resistors in the 02016, 0402, and 0603 case sizes. The new models 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.

The Modelithics model libraries integrate seamlessly with popular electronic design automation (EDA) tools, including Keysight Technologies’ PathWave 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.

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.

Speeding Up Large-Scale EM Simulation of ICs Without Compromising Accuracy

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

With growing on-chip RF content, electromagnetic (EM) simulation of passives is critical — from selecting the right RF design candidates to detecting parasitic coupling. Being on-chip, accurate EM analysis requires a tie in to the process technology with process design kits (PDKs) and foundry-certified EM simulation technology. Anything short of that could compromise the RFIC’s functionality. Learn how to get the highest-in-class accuracy and 10X faster analysis.

Cloud Computing for Electronic Design (Are We There Yet?)

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

When your project is at crunch time, a shortage of server capacity can bring your schedule to a crawl. But, the rest of the year, having a bunch of extra servers sitting around idle can be extremely expensive. Cloud-based EDA lets you have exactly the compute resources you need, when you need them. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Craig Johnson of Cadence Design Systems about Cadence’s cloud-based EDA solutions.
