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 best engage with Modelithics for quite some time after continuing to hear positive things about the accuracy of their models and data from our customer’s design engineers. We are pleased to launch this new initiative and are looking forward to the enhancements to our customer design success and related customer support that will follow.”
As the models are completed, they will be added to the Modelithics IMS MVP Library for multiple supported simulators, including Keysight ADS and Genesys, NI AWRDE, ANSYS HFSS, and Sonnet Suites. Watch for announcements about the new models later this year and visit the IMS landing page on the Modelithics website to see which models are available and to request the free trial: https://www.modelithics.com/mvp/ims
