Ceramic chip inductors provide high Q factor
Global supplier of magnetic components, Coilcraft, has released a new series ceramic wirewound chip inductors. The 0805HP series offers what the company claims to be the industry’s highest Q factors in an 0805 size at frequencies up to 3GHz. It is available with 23 inductance values ranging from 2.6-820nH, with two percent tolerance available for most values. The 0805HP series features a wirewound construction for self resonance up to 9.5GHz.
It also offers significantly lower DCR (as low as 15mΩ) than the previous generation products, making it appropriate for high current applications.
0805HP series inductors feature RoHS compliant, silver-palladium-platinum-glass frit terminations and offer a maximum reflow temperature of 260°C.
COTS Plus tin-silver-copper and tin-lead terminations are also available.
