Manufacturer of chip inductors, power magnetics, EMI filters, wideband transformers, Coilcraft has announced its new 0402DC series ceramic wirewound chip inductors which offer what the company claims to be the industry's highest Q factors in an 0402 (1005) size - up to 162 at 2.4GHz - for low loss in high frequency circuits.

It is offered in 26 standard inductance values ranging from 3.0-120nH. An additional 73 values are available upon request, including 0.1nH increments from 2.8-10nH. Most values are available with 2% tolerance.

The 0402DC series features a wirewound construction for extremely high self resonance - up to 16GHz. It also offers DCR as low as 37mΩ, significantly lower than other 0402-sized chip inductors.

0402DC series chip inductors are ideal for impedance matching circuits for low band (700-960MHz) and high band (1710-2,700MHz) antennas. Its 0402-sized package is suitable for smartphones and tablets.

0402DC series inductors feature RoHS compliant, matte tin over nickel over silver-platinum-glass frit terminations and offer a maximum reflow temperature of 260°C.
