Fullerton, Calif. Designed to fit space-constrained communications applications, TT electronics' BI Technologies Magnetic Components Division offers the BTC series of thin-film chip inductors in 0402 and 0603 package sizes.
The BTC series thin-film chip inductors offer stable inductance values in high frequency circuits and self-resonant frequencies controlled within 10 percent. Absolute tolerance is ±1% or ±0.1 nH, with frequencies of 300 MHz in the 0603 package, and 500 MHz in the 0402 package. The inductors are compatible with both reflow and flow soldering.
The BTC series inductors are said to be smaller and flatter than wirewound inductors and are surface mountable. In addition to their small size, the tight tolerances make them suitable for communications applications such as cell phones, pagers, GPS products and Bluetooth modules. Other applications include RF ICs, WLAN cards, low noise amplifiers, mixers, voltage- and temperature-controlled oscillators, matching networks, and RF transceiver modules.
