Version 16.1 of the Modelithics COMPLETE Library for NI AWR Design Environment adds 33 new models from 13 different vendors to the existing collection of highly accurate simulation models with unique and powerful scalability features. New Microwave Global Models™ have been added for passive components from AVX, ATC, Coilcraft, Vishay, TDK, Murata and Würth Elektronik. New non-linear active device models are available for CEL (NEC) and Qorvo (formerly RFMD) transistors. System-level component models have been added for attenuators, couplers and diplexers from AVX and ATC, and packages from Barry Industries and RJR Polymers. Single substrate S-parameter models are also now available for IPDiA broadband capacitors. Please see the release notes for more details on new models and new features.

Several new significant capability features have been added with the v16.1 release. A new simulation mode has been incorporated into most CLR models. In addition to simulation modes 0, 1 and 2 (full parasitic model, ideal model, pads removed parasitic model), “Sim_mode 3” removes pad and substrate dependencies while keeping internal parasitic of the component. In addition, part value files are now included with the CLR models, which can be used for discrete optimization; Modelithics models with pad parameters are now compatible with NI AWR software iCell intelligent microstrip components; and the license expiration warning can now be adjusted by the user to be disabled or to appear a specified number of days prior to expiration.

Not included within the Modelithics COMPLETE Library is a growing library of discrete high power GaN models within the Modelithics-Qorvo GaN Library.  This library is also distributed by Modelithics to Qorvo-approved designers for free and can be loaded alongside the Modelithics COMPLETE Library to enable convenient access to the widest range of accurate active and passive RF and microwave models available. More information on this sponsored library cam be found at

Modelithics offers a FREE evaluation library, Modelithics SELECT+, with a sampling of the models, and can be downloaded from the Modelithics website. A more comprehensive trial library, Modelithics EXEMPLAR, is also available by request and represents a subset of models in the Modelithics COMPLETE Library, containing all models needed to run the many example projects found on the Modelithics website and as part of the standard installation of the Modelithics COMPLETE Library. EXEMPLAR is also available for extended university use.
