Solder-pad scalability is included within Modelithics Microwave Global Models. This feature allows users to specify the desired pad dimensions. The model performance will then scale appropriately with respect to the solder pads. The range of validated pad dimensions for a given model can be found in the model datasheet.
Solder-pad effects can also be disabled by setting the Sim_mode parameter to 2. This feature is useful for EM/circuit co-simulations in which the user may want to simulate the pads within the EM simulator rather than with the model itself. With Sim_mode 2, the reference planes are located at the edges of the component body. In comparison, when using the default Sim_mode 0 setting, the reference planes are located at the edges of the solder pads.
