Surface mount inductors for RF enhance solderability

28 February 2001 Passive Components

Gowanda Electronics introduced a new series of surface mount inductors at the 2001 Wireless Symposium. This wirewound CC series is designed with terminations which result in improved solderability and therefore easier/faster assembly, enhanced system performance and greater system reliability.

This series of surface mount inductors is targeted for use in RF applications in the electronics industry, especially for wireless and test and measurement equipment where solderability is a major concern.

The CC series was designed in response to the market's need for higher reliability and improved mechanical consistency. In addition to enhanced solderability, the CC series of products can be designed with higher inductance and Q values as application-specific designs, enabling engineers to maximise circuit performance.

Applications for the CC surface mount inductors include all RF signal circuitry in communications equipment, test and measurement equipment, medical diagnostic equipment and industrial process control equipment. Other applications include use in computers, computer peripherals, security systems instrumentation, bar code and laboratory analysis equipment.

The CC surface mount inductor series includes three models which are similar but differ in size and inductance ranges: Model CC0603 (1,6 to 270 nH); Model CC0805 (3,3 to 820 nH); and Model CC1008 (10 to 4700 nH). Within each model number there are a number of discrete products available with specific inductance values. For applications requiring inductance in the range of 1,2 to 10 mH, the CF1008 model is available. It is very similar to the CC series except that the core is ferrite.

The Gowanda Electronics CC series (and related CF model) of surface mount inductors offers custom designs that meet the specific requirements of an application.
