Broadband SMT conical inductors

29 September 2021 Passive Components

Coilcraft’s BCR Series comprises conical inductors available in nine inductance values ranging from 0,22 to 8,0 µH. They are designed specifically for broadband and high-frequency applications across a frequency range of 10 MHz to 40 GHz.

The inductors are ideal for use in ultra-wideband bias tees, where the conical inductor provides the path for the DC bias injection or extraction while isolating the power source from the active device. They are RoHS compliant and can operate at up to 260°C. The parts have tin-silver-copper over silver-platinum-glass frit terminations.
