New Models for Attenuators and Resistors Released by Modelithics

Modelithics® and International Manufacturing Services® (IMS) Release New Models for Attenuators and Resistors Tampa, Florida and Portsmouth, Rhode Island (January 31, 2019) – Modelithics and International Manufacturing Services (IMS) have completed the development of eight new broadband Microwave Global Models™ for IMS attenuator and resistor families. The models were developed through the Modelithics Vendor Partner (MVP) Program under a 6-year collaboration plan recently established between Modelithics and IMS. New models are now available for the following IMS components: RC3-0402PW, RC4-0302PW and NDX-1020EZW high frequency resistor families, A-0402WA-C/IMS2652 and A-0603-C/IMS2533 high frequency attenuator families, and the VDR-3725SG very high-power attenuator series. The VDR-3725 attenuator model is validated up to 2 GHz, while all other attenuator and resistor models are validated to 40 or 50 GHz. The new models are substrate scalable, pad scalable and part value scalable, with the exception of the 50-ohm single-value NDX-1020EZW resistor model. The models are available for use with multiple EDA tools*, including Keysight ADS, Keysight Genesys, NI AWR Design Environment/Microwave Office™, ANSYS® HFSS™, Sonnet® Suites™ and Cadence® Spectre® RF. (*Model availability may vary by simulator) IMS is a Sponsoring Modelithics Vendor Partner (MVP) and as part of this program, is sponsoring FREE 90-day trials of [...]

Modelithics and IMS Establish 6 Year Collaboration

Tampa, Florida and Portsmouth, Rhode Island (April 30, 2018) – Modelithics and International Manufacturing Services (IMS) have entered into a long term collaboration commitment that includes development of simulation models for numerous IMS device families, as well as funding Sponsoring Modelithics Vendor Partner (MVP) status for at least 6 years. High frequency, scalable models for multiple IMS resistor and attenuator families are planned under this initial agreement. As a Sponsoring MVP, IMS will sponsor FREE 90-day trials of all available Modelithics models for IMS components. Modelithics is looking forward to developing the new models and to having IMS components represented in the Modelithics COMPLETE Library. Larry Dunleavy, president and CEO of Modelithics stated, “We are very happy to have IMS as a new MVP. The 6-year plan sets a new precedent for the confidence and trust we are enjoying with our vendor partners. This arrangement was established to provide a long term strategic roadmap for model development and multi-year MVP sponsorship while spreading out the total budget over several years. It is a great arrangement for everyone.” J.J. Silvia III, IMS Vice President of Operations, is looking forward to the collaboration as well, stating, “We have been considering how to [...]

IMS Introduces Non-Magnetic Chip Resistors with Ultra Leach Resistant Terminals for MRI Applications

Portsmouth, Rhode Island, USA – International Manufacturing Services, Inc. (IMS), a leading manufacturer of high quality thick film resistors, terminations, attenuators, couplers, thermal management devices, planar dividers and planar filters to the electronics industry, has introduced a new type or chip resistor terminal which are non-magnetic and ultra leach resistant. The Ultra Leach Resistant (ULR) type terminals have been proven to maintain their integrity in the harshest solder environments, including high temperature and multiple reflows, withstanding up to 15 minutes at 260°C. The ULR metallization gives customers ultimate solder leach resistance without the need for ferro-resonant Nickel Barrier terminals. The leach resistance of ULR type terminals is far superior to Ni-Barrier at a lower cost than Copper Barrier components. These rugged terminals are available in RoHS and lead content versions on resistor sizes 0402 to 6227, values 1 to 1T and operating frequency to 40GHz. Chip resistors with ULR terminals are ideal for any application including but not limited to MRI Coils, NMR imaging and cryogenics. Since 1974, IMS has been supplying the electronics manufacturing industries with highest quality thick and thin film chip  resistors, terminations, attenuators, couplers, thermal management devices and other RF and Microwave components.
