Modelithics and Johanson Technology have developed new scalable Microwave Global Models for the Johanson R15S and R15G capacitor series. The new simulation models for the 0805 S-Series and the 0805 G-Series Ultra High-Q capacitor families feature substrate, capacitance and pad scalability. The R15G model is also capable of offering orientation selectability. The models have been developed through the Modelithics Vendor Partner (MVP) program.The R15S Microwave Global Model (CAP-JOH-0805-101) includes the complete series capacitance range, from 0.1 to 220 pF, and the R15G model (CAP-JOH-0805-002) includes the full range from 0.3 pF to 100 pF. Microwave Global Models are equivalent circuit models that are carefully validated with precision Modelithics ESR and S-parameter measurements. Both models are validated to 20 GHz, and have advanced parameters for substrate property inputs and pad dimensions. They accurately simulate the capacitor and associated parasitics up to high frequencies based on the substrate and pad inputs.In addition to the powerful scalability features, the models are also compatible with tuning, optimization, and statistical analysis tools that are available within the EDA simulation software.The Johanson capacitor models are formatted for use with the multiple simulation tools supported by Modelithics including Keysight Advanced Design System, National Instruments AWR Design Environment, Keysight Genesys, ANSYS HFSS, and Sonnet Suites.Johanson is sponsoring a FREE 90-day use of these models through the MVP program.

Senior Pablo Borrero and junior Alex Peyrot were unanimous selections onto the 6-member men’s tennis squad. Borrero completed his final season in Pensacola with a 3.69 GPA in global marketing.

Blanchet has a 3.56 grad point average in exercise science and is coming off a year that saw him win the GSC Player of the Year award. Rajendranath graduated with a degree in sport management and a 3.20 GPA after earning Second Team All-GSC accolades on the course. The Spring All-Academic Teams were selected by the GSC Sports Information Directors (SIDs) and Faculty Athletic Representatives (FARs) in a joint vote. Nominated student-athletes must have an overall grade point average (GPA) of 3.20 or better on a 4.00 scale for their entire academic career and may not be freshmen or first-semester or quarter transfers. The student-athlete must be a significant contributor to the squad. Other factors include leadership, community service and extra-curricular activities. SIDs and FARs are not allowed to vote for their own student-athletes. The number of student-athletes selected in each sport is determined by the number of positions normally involved in the playing of that sport. Ties are not broken.
