Library Has Surface-Mount Components

Sept. 1, 2005
Panasonic and Ansoft Corp have released of a new device library for Nexxim and Ansoft Designer based on Panasonic's high-density miniaturized surface-mount technology (SMT) components.

Designers of equipment such as cellular handsets, car-navigation systems, and wireless local-area networks (WLANs) can now design large-scale PCBs with accurate electrical models for high-performance parts. The library has three principal passive SMT components, 159 multilayer ceramicchip capacitors (MLCC), 186 chip resistors, and 45 chip inductors. SMT components come in equivalent circuit and S-parameter form and can be used in Nexxim and Ansoft Designer. The lab lets Ansoft users search for components by name, performance data, or other specification. The library is available from Panasonic's Web site is easy to download and configure for use within Nexxim and Ansoft Designer.
