Modelithics releases latest TriQuint GaN RF simulation model library

Modelithics Inc of Tampa, FL, USA, which provides RF and microwave active and passive simulation models for electronic design automation (EDA), has released the latest update to the growing library of high-accuracy non-linear simulation models for gallium nitride (GaN) transistors from RF front-end component maker and foundry services provider TriQuint Semiconductor Inc of Hillsboro, OR, USA.

The TriQuint GaN library, v1.5.0, now contains precision models for 29 of the firm’s most popular GaN transistors, including the T1G2028536-FL, T1G4012036-FS and T2G4005528-FS package format transistors and the TGF2023-2-01, TGF2023-2-10 and TGF2954 die format transistors.

The GaN transistor models have been developed using Modelithics measurements and modeling technology. Each has been validated over multiple measurements, including multi-bias S-parameters, pulsed IV, single-tone power and load pull at various frequencies. The models have broadband non-linear performance predictability, and offer temperature scaling capability. Design features included with many of the models include scalable operating voltage, control of self-heating effects, and access to intrinsic voltage/current nodes for I/V waveform analysis.

TriQuint’s GaN-based solutions are said to offer greater power density, efficiency, frequency range and ruggedness, enabling RF systems to use less electricity, operate with less input voltage and deliver greater RF output power while reducing amplifier size and part counts.

“This partnership in GaN modeling with TriQuint represents a new format for getting designers tooled with the models they need for design success, with the supplier sponsoring the maintenance, support and distribution of a professionally managed and well documented software library consisting of state-of-the-art non-linear temperature dependent models,” says Modelithics’ president & CEO Larry Dunleavy.

“TriQuint’s partnership with Modelithics will provide designers with precise models for exceptional simulation development,” says Brian Balut, TriQuint’s VP of IDP Engineering. “Production-ready system designs and simulations can now be developed using models of TriQuint's industry-leading GaN transistor technology,” he adds.

The GaN models are available now for free download and use by approved TriQuint customers. Each model comes with a model datasheet that provides detailed information about the model development, features, usage and performance plots.
