Passive Plus, Inc. (PPI), a Modelithics® Vendor Partner (MVP), is now offering design engineers a Free 90-Day Trial license for the Modelithics PPI Component Library. This will provide PPI customers access to extremely accurate scalable simulation models for Passive Plus capacitors with advanced features that enable a more precise and rapid design process.

The Modelithics® Vendor Partner (MVP) Program promoted collaboration and open communication between Passive Plus and Modelithics during the development of advanced data sets and Modelithics Microwave Global Models ™ for Passive Plus capacitors. Through the MVP Program, Passive Plus is also sponsoring free trials of these models to approved customers.

The Microwave Global Models include every part value in a series and permit users to input substrate thickness, dielectric constant, and loss tangent, as well as mounting pad layout dimensions. Selected models also include capacitor orientation – vertical or horizontal – as an input. Engineers can request FREE use of the models, by either visiting the Passive Plus Resources page (http://passiveplus.com/addldocs_resources.php) or the Passive Plus MVP page on the Modelithics® website ( http://www.modelithics.com/mvp/PassivePlus/) by clicking on “FREE TRIAL”.
