Agilent Technologies Announces No-Cost, Six-Month Availability Of Modelithics COMPLETE Library For Genesys 2014

Extensive Model Library Enables Exceptional Accuracy with Genesys RF Simulation Software

Agilent Technologies Inc. recently announced that the Modelithics COMPLETE Library of RF and microwave component model libraries is available free of charge for six months to Genesys 2014 users new to Modelithics.

First made available to Genesys users in 2003, the Modelithics COMPLETE Library contains over 10,000 RF/microwave components with accurate nonlinear models for active devices and highly scalable linear models for passive component families. Each model is extracted from a standardized set of highly accurate measurements and carefully documented with individual model data sheets to provide designers with exceptional simulation accuracy and design flexibility when using Genesys 2014.

The Modelithics COMPLETE Library contains Global Models that represent entire RLC component families as compact models with layout attributes, pad de-embedding capability, and offer scaling of part-value, substrate type and thickness, and solder pad geometries. These advanced models ensure that correct physical geometries are available to the Genesys Momentum electromagnetic (EM) simulator for designers to achieve the best possible accuracy from circuit-EM co-simulation of the RF board prior to signing off on hardware fabrication.

Using the Modelithics COMPLETE Library, Genesys 2014 users can now design and realize their products faster and easier with accurate models of popular vendor parts. Easily accessible in the Genesys 2014 schematic and layout design environments, the libraries enable designers to compare the performance, size and ease-of-realization of deploying different vendor parts in their designs so that production-ready circuit or system designs can be finalized in a single pass.

“Accurate models are critical to achieving excellent simulation-based design success,” said Larry Dunleavy, president of Modelithics. “In recognition of this need, we are pleased to work with Agilent to make our Modelithics COMPLETE Library available to those Genesys users who have yet to experience the difference our accurate models can make in improving design success and productivity while using Agilent Genesys.”

“Our Genesys 2014 customers will definitely appreciate the availability of the Modelithics COMPLETE Library, especially given the high quality of their models,” said How-Siang Yap, product planning and marketing manager for Agilent’s Genesys software. “Over the years, RF designers worldwide have voiced their desire for access to these models. The six-month promotion now gives our customers access to the best accuracy in the most affordable RF simulation software in the industry.”

U.S. Pricing and Availability
Agilent’s Genesys 2014 software is now available with pricing starting at $4,000. The free, six-month promotion of the Modelithics COMPLETE library runs throughout 2014 and is available to all Genesys users who complete a simulation modeling needs survey at www.surveymonkey.com/s/Genesys2014_Modelitics-Survey.
