Gowanda Electronics announced the introduction of the world’s smallest non-magnetic molded RF inductor series, SMG1812. This new surface mount wire wound series will be featured at MD&M-East. The dimensions of the new SMG1812 are 4.8 mm (length) x 3.4 mm (width) x 3.5 mm (height). The overall size is more than 40% smaller than Gowanda’s SMG3013 series (the industry’s smallest non-magnetic molded RF inductor series until now). Gowanda’s development of smaller inductor designs is in response to the ongoing market trend for smaller devices and therefore smaller components.

Inductors (in their role as filters) block certain frequencies that otherwise would compromise the performance of equipment or devices. Gowanda’s SMG1812 was designed specifically for applications that are magnetically sensitive and therefore require non-magnetic components. Relevant applications include test equipment & devices and medical diagnostic equipment – specifically imaging equipment such as MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) and particular types of X-ray equipment.
