Gowanda expands its shielded surface mount RF inductor offering
Precision components for radio frequency (RF) ad power applications from Gowanda Electronics now include the SML32S series of wirewound, shielded, moulded RF surface mount inductors in the 1210 style. This expansion increases the number of individual parts in the series by more than 20 per cent, says Gowanda and broadens the inductance range by adding values from 120 to 470 microH.
The expansion addresses the market need for higher inductance shielded inductors in RF applications. Shielded inductors are used specifically in applications where the close proximity of circuit board components requires the inductor to be shielded to minimise interactions and ensure performance of the overall system. Such inductors are used for radio frequency applications in commercial, medical and military communities. That includes use in communication, guidance, security, radar, and test and evaluation applications.
The performance range provided by the expanded SML32S series includes inductance from 0.1 to 470 microH, DCR Ohms maximum from 0.15 to 25 and current rating mA DC from 91 to 1175. There are two core types in the series (powdered iron and ferrite). The series operating temperature range is -55 to +125 degree C. The SML32S series is the magnetically shielded version of Gowanda’s SML32 series.
