Würth Elektronik and Modelithics Partner on HV Inductor Simulations

March 22, 2018 by Paul Shepard

As part of their Microwave Global Models™ cooperation, Würth Elektronik eiSos and Modelithics make two more Würth Elektronik eiSos product series available. This means that developers can simulate the high frequency response of WE-KI HC high current ceramic inductors and the WE-CAIR air coils in models.

The models offer advanced functions to improve accuracy and to accelerate HF simulations: scalable parameters for substrate properties, pad dimensions and inductance values. The models are compatible with numerous EDA tuning and optimization tools

The new Modelithics Microwave Global Models™ are available for WE-KI-HC series 0402 and 0603, which cover the inductance values from 1.0 to 51 nH and 1.8 to 390 nH. Moreover, five WE-CAIR air coil series are modeled: 1322, 1340, 3136, 3168 and 4248, which together cover inductance values from 1.65 nH to 120 nH.

All models are validated up to 30 GHz. The models were developed to provider RF developers with a powerful analysis function and very accurate simulations in the first run.

WE-KI HC high current ceramic inductors

The inductor models are created for seamless integration in common design tools like Keysight ADS and Genesys, NI AWR Design Environment, ANSYS HFSS and Sonnet Suites. Würth Elektronik eiSos, as a Modelithics Vendor Partner, sponsors free 90-day tests of the component models, which are available from Modelithics.
