02/01/12: Virginia Diodes and Modelithics partner to provide nonlinear models.

Virginia Diodes and Modelithics have partnered to provide nonlinear models of VDI's W Band Single Anode and W Band ZBD Schottky diodes. Extensive model information data sheets demonstrate linear and non-linear validations against measured data taken from DC through 125 GHz. The model data sheets and model access requests can be accessed through the Modelithics website

"We have enjoyed working with Modelithics to advance what we believe to be the industry’s broadest band diode models. VDI’s customers are already benefiting from access to these new models that were developed in response to numerous customer requests” stated Gerhard Schoenthal, Director of Operations and Microelectronics at VDI




About Modelithics, Inc.

Modelithics, Inc. ( was formed in 2001 to address the industry-wide need for high-accuracy RF and microwave active and passive simulation models for use in Electronic Design Automation (EDA). Current products include the CLR Library™, which contains measurement-based Global Models for a multitude of commercially-available passive component families, the NLD Library™ (non-linear diode models)the NLT Library™ (non-linear transistor models), and the SLC Library™ (system level component models). Modelithics’ services also address a wide range of custom RF, microwave and millimeter-wave measurement and modeling needs. Modelithics Vendor Partner (MVP) program provides flexible opportunities for supplier companies to work with Modelithics to avail mutual customers with high accuracy measurement data sets and models for RF, microwave and millimeter-wave devices.
