0402DC Series Ceramic Chip Inductors
Coilcraft’s 0402DC series of ceramic wirewound chip inductors offer the highest Q factor in an 0402 package ideal for smartphones and tablets. 0402DC inductors are available with a Q factor as high as 160 at 2.4 GHz, enabling super-low loss in high-frequency designs.
The wirewound construction results in self-resonance up to 28.8 GHz and provides DCR as low as 25 mΩ, which is significantly lower than other 0402 inductors. Inductance values range from 0.8 to 120 nH, with 0.1 nH increments from 2.8 to 10 nH enabling precise impedance matching for low band and high band antennas.
The C472-2 Designer’s Kit contains 20 samples of all 112 inductance values and is ideal for fine-tuning impedance matching circuits on prototypes.
