The 0402CT Series of low profile chip inductors are wirewound ceramic core inductors with high Q factor, high self-resonant frequencies and a 30% lower profile than competitive products. The 0402CT series has a maximum height of 0.45 mm and offers excellent RF performance for wearables and other height limited devices.
Coilcraft has introduced two new series of low-profile wirewound chip inductors: the 0402CT Series and the 0402FL Series.
The 0402CT Series of chip inductors features a ceramic core and has a maximum height of just 0.45 mm, a 30% lower profile than competitive products. Offered in 23 inductance values from 1.2 to 56 nH (with, 5%, 3% or 2% tolerance), the 0402CT provides excellent Q Factor performance – up to 84 at 2.4 GHz. It also offers self-resonant frequencies as high as 27.5 GHz and current ratings up to 2.3 Amps (Irms).
The ferrite-core 0402FL Series has a maximum height of 0.55 mm and is offered in 16 inductance values from 20 to 560 nH. It is well suited for use as a one-pole filter or RF choke in cellular bands, and can be used in both mobile and infrastructure equipment. The 0402FL’s ferrite construction provides high current handling, up to 1.3 Amps (Irms), with extremely low DCR.
Both the 0402CT and 0402FL feature RoHS compliant, matte tin over nickel over silver-platinum-glass terminations and withstand a maximum reflow temperature of 260°C.
