This New Product Brief (NPB) is part of a video series highlighting the features, applications, and technical specs of newly-released products.

COILCRAFT Square Air Core RF Inductors

Coilcraft’s family of Square Air Core Inductors provide a high Q factor and low losses, making them ideal for narrowband RF applications such as matching and tuning networks. 

The inductors have a flat top and bottom that enable reliable pick and place assembly and provide enhanced mechanical stability. The air core ensures excellent RF performance, with Q factors up to 230 at 400MHz. Lower and higher inductance models are available, covering inductance values from 5.5nH to 500nH with 5% or 2% tolerance. 

Parts are available with current ratings up to 5.7A and can operate at up to 125°C at their rated current. Coilcraft Square Air Core Inductors are RoHS-compliant and have solder coated leads to ensure reliable soldering. Designer’s Kits are available and contain 10 of each part.
