Modelithics Releases TriQuint GaN RF Simulation Models

Library contains free non-linear models for most popular GaN transistors

Modelithics, in partnership with TriQuint Semiconductor, has released the latest update to the growing library of high-accuracy non-linear simulation models for TriQuint GaN transistors.

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

The TriQuint GaN transistor models have been developed using trusted Modelithics measurements and modeling technology. Each model 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. 

Advanced 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.

Modelithics president & CEO Larry Dunleavy noted: "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. We are very pleased to be supporting TriQuint customers in this way."

"TriQuint's partnership with Modelithics will provide designers with precise models for exceptional simulation development," said TriQuint VP of IDP Engineering, Brian Balut. "We're excited that production-ready system designs and simulations can now be developed using models of TriQuint's industry leading GaN transistor technology."

The TriQuint GaN models are currently available for free download and use by approved TriQuint customers. 

AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
