January 24, 2018 Jamie Leland

Coilcraft has released its 0402DC Series ceramic wirewound chip inductors, which offers Q factors up to 162 at 2.4 GHz in an 0402 (1005) size for low loss in high frequency circuits, ideal for impedance matching circuits for low band (700 - 960MHz) and high band (1710 - 2700MHz) antennas in small devices like smartphones and tablets.

The 0402DC Series features self-resonance up to 16 GHz and DCR as low as 37 mΩ. It is offered in 26 standard inductance values ranging from 3.0 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. 0402DC Series inductors feature RoHS compliant, matte tin over nickel over silver-platinum-glass frit terminations and offer a maximum reflow temperature of 260°C.
