Gowanda smallest inductor

Gowanda Electronics has unleashed what it boasts as the world's smallest non-magnetic moulded RF inductor series. The dimensions of the SMG1812 are 4.8 x 3.4 x 3.5mm that according to the company has 40 per cent smaller footprint than the company's SMG3013 series.

The devices are intended for applications that are magnetically sensitive and therefore require non-magnetic components. Relevant applications include test equipment and devices, and medical diagnostic equipment such as MRI and particular types of X-ray equipment.

Technical specifications of the SMG1812 series include inductance from 0.010-0.082µH, Q min from 35-40, SRF min from 750-1000MHz, DCR Max from 0.1-0.25Ω, and current rating DC from 700-1230mA. An RoHS-compliant ("lead-free") version is available and is denoted SMG1812LF.

It is anticipated that this new series from Gowanda will be used not only in the medical industry but also in a wide variety of market applications and industries where magnetic materials and magnetic characteristics must be avoided. These other applications could include use in telecommunications, security systems, instrumentation, laboratory analysis equipment, aviation equipment, navigation equipment and electronic test equipment.
