Ansoft Announces New HBT Device Library

September 09, 2003 by Jeff Shepard

Ansoft Corp. (Pittsburgh, PA) announced the release of a new device library based on NEC Compound Semiconductor Devices Ltd.'s hetero-junction bipolar transistors (HBTs) for use with Ansoft Designer™, the circuit, system and planar EM simulator for high-frequency electronic design.

The new library contains electrical models of NEC Compound Semiconductor's discrete HBT products used for general-purpose, high-frequency designs. The library improves design accuracy by supplying vendor-authorized device models directly as ready-to-use components.

The library is available from NEC Compound Semiconductor Devices' website and is easily downloaded and configured for use within Ansoft Designer. The site provides Ansoft Designer users with the ability to search for components by name, performance data or other specification. NEC Compound Semiconductor will maintain model support and upgrades, while Ansoft will address all customer support for Ansoft Designer.
