Schaumburg, Ill. Taiyo Yuden (U.S.A.) is offering its new high-frequency designer's kit free to qualified designers attending the IEEE MTT-S International Microwave Symposium 2004 in Ft. Worth, Texas, from June 8-10. The component sample kit comes bundled with an assortment of capacitors, ferrite beads and multilayer inductors that are included on the accompanying RF Component Library CD containing enhanced high-frequency performance data for use in circuit simulations, and a copy of Ansoft Designer SV design simulation software.
Taiyo Yuden will exhibit as a Device Partner with Ansoft Corp. (Booth 1429) and will accept requests for its new free sample kit from attendees. Sample kits may also be requested at www.t-yuden.com.
Taiyo Yuden developed its RF Component Library in partnership with Ansoft for use with Ansoft Designer, a fully integrated circuit, system and electromagnetic field simulator. The company said by utilizing enhanced accuracy S-parameters, the RF Component Library data produces extremely narrow deviations between simulated data and actual measurements in high-frequency circuit design.
"The proprietary frequency development equivalent circuit data provided in our RF Component Library allows simulations to be performed up to four times faster," according to Toshi Wantanabe, vice president and general manager for Taiyo Yuden (U.S.A.). "In addition, the accuracy of these simulations reduces unnecessary prototype cycles and speeds time-to-market."
