Modelithics Press Release
Tampa, FL, January 24, 2023 – Modelithics, Inc., (Modelithics) is pleased to announce the release of version 23.5.1 of the Modelithics Qorvo GaN Library for use with Keysight Technologies' PathWave Advanced Design System (ADS) and Cadence AWR Design Environment®. This latest version offers new models for Qorvo's QPD1025, QPD1028, QPD1425, and QPD1425L discrete GaN-on-SiC HEMTs. Version 23.5.1 also offers 2 new embedding models for the T2G6000528-Q3 and T2G6003028-FL devices.
The QPD1025 is an 1,800-W device intended to operate from 0.96 to 1.215 GHz, while the QPD1028 is a 750-W device intended to operate from 1.2 to 1.4 GHz. The QPD1425 and QPD1425L are 300-W devices intended for operation from 1.2 to 1.4 GHz. All four of the new models are Angelov-based models that include features like temperature scaling, self-heating effects, and intrinsic I-V sensing.
The new embedding models for the T2G6000528-Q3 and T2G6003028-FL devices make it possible to design power amplifiers (PAs) without comprehensive load-pull analysis. They enable a new waveform-based PA design strategy that begins with the desired intrinsic waveforms. The models then enable direct synthesis of the multi-harmonic impedances needed for the desired intrinsic waveforms. A suitable matching network can then be designed, (see “Nonlinear Embedding Model for Waveform Engineering Motivated PA Design.”)
