Modelithics adding over 20 new transistor simulation models to Qorvo GaN Library

Modelithics Inc of Tampa, FL, USA, which provides RF and microwave active and passive simulation models for electronic design automation (EDA), and Qorvo Inc (a provider of core technologies and RF solutions for mobile, infrastructure and aerospace/defense applications) have announced plans to expand the Modelithics Qorvo GaN Library of high-accuracy non-linear models for Qorvo gallium nitride (GaN) transistors. The existing GaN library version (v1.5) has 29 packaged and die transistor models. New plans include adding over 20 new Qorvo GaN transistor models.

"This collaboration has allowed Modelithics to apply its many years of experience with model library software development to the benefit of Qorvo customers," says Modelithics' president & CEO Larry Dunleavy. "Qorvo's sponsorship of free distribution and support has enabled this high-accuracy non-linear library to be quickly embraced and widely utilized by the international PA design community," he adds. "Customers that also use Modelithics scalable CLR Library models for the passives in their matching and bias networks can get the best of both worlds in terms of simulation-based design success." 

The non-linear GaN models feature temperature scaling, intrinsic I-V sensing capability, bias dependence, self-heat scaling factor parameter, and measurement validations including pulsed IV and load pull. Each model comes with a model datasheet, which provides detailed information about the model development, features, parameter settings and model performance plots.

The Qorvo GaN Library is available for free to approved Qorvo customers by requesting through the Modelithics website.
