Air coil inductor has high Q, high self-resonant frequency and low inductance
Bourns has launched a surface mount air coil inductor series with high Q, high self-resonant frequency and tight inductance tolerance.
The Model AC4842R Air Coil Inductor Series gives RF application designers a wider range of high Q options with a Q value of at least 100 and inductance from 22 to 150nH.
The series’ features a wire coil design without a magnetic core, which provides significantly lower inductance values and offers superior functionality at high frequencies.
- Shielded power inductor line adds high current series
- Wire wound chip inductor with High Q cuts size
Bourns says it designed the Model AC4842R Series with tight tolerance providing DC resistance from 4 to 33 milliohms, with 1.2 to 3.50 A maximum rated current and offering an operating temperature range from –25 to +125 °C.
The Model AC4842R air coil inductor series is also manufactured with an epoxy cover for added mechanical stability, and the series’ surface mount design makes these air coil inductors suitable for pick and place processes.
The Model AC4842R Series is available now, and is RoHS compliant.
