Better Simulations Mean Faster Developments

A high-frequency digital, RF, or hybrid design can require dozens of design iterations, as a variety of real-world interactions, resonances, and oscillations are first discovered and then painstakingly tuned out.

But when the complex characteristics of each component are accurately modeled, the result is a far more accurate simulation that gets you close to your final design the very first time you simulate it.

As a result, you'll complete designs faster and get new products to market sooner. Eliminating even one design turn can save your team the cost of a complete Modelithics library of 5 component models.

Assumption Notes

  1. The total number of iterations includes the first pass plus any additional design iterations.
  2. Without improved models, in-house char./modeling and bench tuning are assumed to be performed along with the initial design characterization and at least 2 iterations (including first pass) are required.
  3. With improved models, no bench tuning or char./modeling, required and at least one fewer iteration needed to complete design.
  4. Iteration Design Effort at Reduced Effort to That of Initial Design/testing and tuning same as initial design (labor re-use factors are 50% for labor and 10% for other costs)
