Spice Models / S-parameters

Coilcraft has measurement-based lumped element, netlist, and s-parameter models for reliable simulations.  We have also developed current-dependent saturation models for our soft-saturating molded power inductors and offer comprehensive model libraries for popular circuit simulators.

Benefits of Coilcraft model libraries

  • No need to build a schematic or assign lumped element values
  • Simply select the Coilcraft part number from a pull-down menu
  • The netlist is included when selecting the component

Select a Product Series

Use the dropdown or type to select your desired series. Once your series is entered, the website identifies the Coilcraft commercial cross reference and the appropriate SPICE model and S-Parameters for download. Please note, the CPS product series and part numbers will not be shown in the downloads. 

MDLXLogo.png Also available, through Modelithics, is a collection of highly accurate measurement-based models that can be simulated in many popular Electronic Design Automation (EDA) software tools, including Keysight® ADS®, Cadence® AWR Design Environment®, Ansys® HFSS® and more! Modelithics models allow simulation over a wide variety of substrate materials. These models offer broadband parasitic prediction from DC to 20-30 GHz and offer scalable design parameters such as inductance value, pad dimensions, and substrate conditions. Modelithics can also produce custom models for other Coilcraft product families. Through Modelithics Vendor Partner (MVP) Program, Coilcraft is sponsoring free trials for all Modelithics Coilcraft models.

systemvision.gif Coilcraft inductor saturation models are included in the SystemVision® Cloud Simulator from Mentor Graphics. The models represent the soft-saturation of composite core inductors and hard-saturation of ferrite core inductors.
