COILCRAFT 0402CT Series and 0402FL Series low-profile wire wound chip inductors are now available. 0402CT Series features a ceramic core and has a maximum height of just 0.45mm — a 30% lower profile than competitive products. Offered in 23 inductance values from 1.2 to 56nH (with, 5%, 3% or 2% tolerance), devices improve Q Factor performance – up to 84 at 2.4GHz. Devices also offer self-resonant frequencies as high as 27.5GHz and current ratings up to 2.3 Amps (Irms).

The ferrite-core 0402FL Series has a maximum height of 0.55mm and comes in 16 inductance values from 20 to 560nH. Devices are ideal for use as a one-pole filter or RF choke in cellular bands and can be used in both mobile and infrastructure equipment. Device’s ferrite construction provides high current handling — up to 1.3 Amps (Irms) — with extremely low DCR.
