IMS und Modelithics erweitern Partnerschaft


Tampa, Florida and Portsmouth, Rhode Island (March 14, 2023)

Modelithics, Inc. and International Manufacturing Services (IMS) have expanded their long term collaboration commitment for an additional six (6) years, which includes development of simulation models for several additional IMS device families, as well as renewing their ⇒Sponsoring Modelithics Vendor Partner (MVP) status. Additional high frequency Modelithics Microwave Global Models™ for multiple IMS resistor and attenuator families are planned under the extended agreement.

J.J. Silvia III, IMS Vice President, General Manager, states: “IMS is excited to continue this partnership. Applying bench-test data to scalable models found in their library not only provides valuable performance validation, but also benefits our customer design speed and capabilities. High tech customers design with high tech tools that are supported by Modelithics’ software. Modelithics helps our customers gain access to IMS products and data we know can help solve problems in circuit design easily and with accuracy in pre-prototype development.”


Mischer mit integriertem LO-Driver erhältlich


The ⇒MM1A-1855HPSM is a versatile, robust, and broadband double balanced mixer with an integrated broadband LO driver amplifier, covering 18-55GHz LO and RF. The MM1A-1855HPSM is ideal for applications with wide bandwidths and operation at mmWave frequencies. The integrated LO driver amplifier allows for operation with LO powers as low as +4dBm while retaining exceptional conversion loss and linearity.

More models are available from ⇒Marki Microwave to cover the lower frequency range, starting from 2GHz RF/LO. All model are also available on an evaluation board, to allow verification of receiver performance, before bringing the design to the PCB.


Improving RF Mixer Design

Modelithics MVP

Modelithics, the leading provider of RF/microwave simulation models, and Cadence AWR, a leading provider of high-performance circuit simulation tools, are pleased to announce a combined Webinar on circuit simulation.

Topic: Improving RF Mixer Design
Date: Tuesday, May 9, 2023
Time: 9:00am PT/12:00pm ET

Outline: RF mixers are required for signal modulation/demodulation and frequency conversion in wireless applications. These devices are defined by type (active and passive), application (wireless infrastructure, wired broadband), and industry vertical (aerospace and defense, telecommunications, and consumer electronics). Owing to the wide range of these applications, designers implement RF mixers using a diverse range of discrete and integrated technologies in a highly competitive market.

Mixer design and simulation support capabilities within the Cadence AWR Design Environment help efficiently design PCB- and MMIC-based mixers, including rat-race and branch-line single-balanced diode mixers. This synthesis tool incorporates the ideal component models into a design by default. In this webinar, we will demonstrate the design of a mixer using the Mixer Synthesis tool. After the initial synthesis, ideal component models are replaced with Modelithics’ accurate measurement-based models for manufacturer components. We will demonstrate how using Modelithics models for real-life components enables real-life mixer performance to ensure greater first-pass success.
