Raleigh, N.C. Stackpole Electronics, Inc. has added a 0201 chip size to its AL series of thin-film high-frequency inductors. Thin-film inductors are suitable for applications that require tight inductance tolerance, tightly controlled self resonant frequency (SRF), and excellent stability over temperature.
The AL series now offers chip sizes of 0201, 0402, and 0603 with a wide inductance range from .2 nH up to 100 nH. This series is capable of DC currents up to 800 mA and is capable of SRF ratings above 14 GHz minimum.
Thin-film inductors may be used in a wide range of communications applications such as cell phones, pagers, GPS-enabled devices, or devices with a RF or Bluetooth link, as well as wireless networking devices.
Pricing: The AL series is available in standard 7-inch tape-and-reel in quantities of 5,000 pieces for 0603 and 10,000 pieces for 0402 and 0201. Typical pricing ranges from $30 - $50 per thousand for the 0201, $27 - $40 per thousand for 0402, and $45 - $55 per thousand for 0603, depending on volume.
Availability: Typical lead times are stock to 10 weeks.
