Chip Inductors Provide Q Factors Up to 162 At 2.4 GHz

Coilcraft's 0402DC Series ceramic wire-wound chip inductors claim to offer the industry's highest Q factors in an 0402 (1005) size - up to 162 at 2.4 GHz. The inductors are available in 26 standard inductance values ranging from 3 nH to 120 nH. An additional 73 values are available upon request, including 0.1-nH increments from 2.8 nH to 10 nH. Most values are available with 2% tolerance.


The 0402DC Series features a wire-wound construction for high self-resonance up to 16 GHz. It also offers DCR as low as 37 mΩ. Additionally, the inductors are RoHS compliant, feature matte tin over nickel over silver-platinum-glass frit terminations, and offer a maximum reflow temperature of +260°C. For more scintillating data, a datasheet is on tap.
