Inductors Tackle Medical Applications
Wed, 12/02/2009 - 4:28am
The series of 0603-size ceramic inductors target the medical market. These robust components are manufactured to meet the special requirements of these demanding applications. The ML Series offers higher inductance values than other 0603 inductors, keeping board space to a minimum. Inductance values range from 47 nH to 22 µH. Q ratings are as high as 50 at 250 MHz with self resonant frequencies as high as 16 GHz. Ceramic construction provides high current handling, while a high-temperature encapsulant allows operation in ambient temperatures from -55°C to 155°C. MTBF is one billion hours.
