► PSpice Models Tantalum & Niobium Oxide Capacitors for OrCAD & MicroSim CAD software
AVX has provided software SPICE models of popular tantalum and niobium oxidecapacitors.
A technical paper is available which outlines how to use these models and discusses some of the specific features which have been included in the SpiTan 3 updated package. The models are available as downloadable files for addition to the most popular CAD software libraries. There are two versions, one for OrCAD capture and the other for MicroSim and OrCAD PSpice software.
Symbols are provided for each part type manufactured by AVX. These symbols can be "dragged and dropped" in the schematic capture portion of the package. Once incorporated, circuit simulation can be done. A new feature of temperature compensation has also been built into the models, thereby enabling the effect of heating or cooling on the circuit to be observed.

► RF/Microwave S-Parameters and Models
AVX offers s-parameters for all of the RF/Microwave products that are offered. The s-parameter files are in standard Touchstone format and can be used with any RF software package that will allow the user to import them. They are extremely helpful when trying to model a circuit prior to prototyping and can save valuable time on the front end of your design cycle.

► Modelithics™ Models for AVX MLC Capacitors
Modelithics Global Models™ reliably track how each component's performance will change with substrate characteristics, as illustrated in the Global Model data sheet for the component. Global Models automatically scale all substrate-sensitive parasitics with nominal part value, enabling a single model to generate accurate simulations of a complete component family. The model information data sheets demonstrate the good measured to modeled agreement that can be expected from using this model on the appropriate pads and substrate settings.
