APEC 2022: Gowanda introduces inductors for RF applications

22 March 2022

Gowanda Electronics has developed its first ceramic core chip inductor series for power and RF applications and will feature the devices at the 2022 Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC) taking place this week.

The SMP0603 series can be used in test and measurement, industrial control and automotive sectors for power management as well as in commercial, medical and military markets for RF.

The performance range of the inductors include inductance from 1.8 nH to 27 nH, DCR Ohms from 0.010 to 0.040 and current ratings mA DC from 1750 to 3400. Operating temperature for the power series is -40° C to 125° C.

Gowanda said the inductors use co-fired terminations and fully encapsulated designs to address the need for chemical resistance, vibration/shear resistance, electrical and mechanical integrity, durability during handling/processing and implantable device components.

Gowanda offers numerous RF chip inductor series such as QPL versions for military applications and the SMP0603 series leverages the company’s similarly sized ceramic chip RF inductor series.
