Mini-Circuits, Modelithics Offer Free Full 3D Models for Ansys HFSS

Aug. 21, 2020
Mini-Circuits partners with Modelithics to offer free, full-3D Ansys HFSS models over 40 LTCC filters.

Mini-Circuits has partnered with modeling and simulation vendor Modelithics to offer full 3D models for Ansys HFSS for over 40 of Mini-Circuits’ most popular LTCC filters. The models are now available for free download from the Modelithics website as a resource to customers in the simulation stage for new system designs. The companies plan further development of additional 3D models for HFSS on an ongoing basis.

Mini-Circuits’ advanced modelling capability for its LTCC products lends itself to consistent first-spin agreement between simulations and measured results for lumped and distributed circuits up to 60 GHz. The free downloads for HFSS extend the benefits of Mini-Circuits’ proprietary design knowledge to system designers for PCB prototyping and system performance optimization on the industry-standard tool for 3D simulation of full-wave electromagnetic fields.

Modelithics employed proprietary methods to further refine and fully validate the 3D models against measured results and extend usability for different substrates, substrate thicknesses, land patterns, and materials. With this latest addition, the Modelithics Library now includes over 100 advanced models for Mini-Circuits parts including S-parameter data models, substrate scalable models, X-parameter data models, and Ansys HFSS 3D models.
