Device supplier Nitronex and modeling specialist Modelithics have teamed to develop nonlinear device models for the former's gallium nitride (GaN) power devices. More effective power transistor models will allow amplifier designers to improve the performance of their designs with faster turn-around-times in design cycles. The models will be available as a free download from Modelithics' web site for Agilent Technologies Advanced Design System (ADS) and AWR Microwave Office (MWO) software at http://www.modelithics.com/mvp/NIT/. The models will also be included in Modelithics Select free shareware library.

According to Modelithics President and CEO Larry Dunleavy, "We are very pleased to add Nitronex as a Strategic Modelithics Vendor Partner and look forward to a productive working relationship benefitting designers of efficient, higher power, and broader band GaN PA Designs." Ray Crampton, Director of Marketing for Nitronex, adds that "This strategic relationship with Modelithics reaffirms Nitronex's commitment to provide best-in-class tools to designers developing high efficiency, high power and broadband power amplifiers for today's demanding applications."
