Wideband Miniature Transformers Meet NASA Low Outgassing Specifications

Press release date: October 22, 2012

For aerospace and other ultra-critical applications requiring miniature ferrite-core transformers, Coilcraft CPS has introduced the new AE458RFW Series.  These robust, open design surface mount transformers are specially designed and tested to meet or exceed NASA’s demanding low-outgassing specifications.  With 300V inter-winding isolation and ¼ watt RF input power capability, they are well suited to a broad range of applications.

The Coilcraft CPS AE458RFW Series offers a full-rated operational temperature range of -55 to +155°C, with unlimited floor life at <30° 5%="" relative="" humidity.="" additional="" benefits="" include="" high="" current="" capacity="" (250ma),="" low="" dc="" resistance="" and="" ceramic="" base. ="" the="" footprint="" is="" just="" 4.19x4.55="" mm,="" with="" a="" height="" of="">

Three tap configurations are available: basic 4 lead, 5 lead with a secondary center tap and 6 lead with primary and secondary center taps. Impedance ratios vary from 1:1 to 1:16, depending of frequency range and configuration.  Leach resistant terminations are tin-lead (63/37) with other coatings available.  This design ensures best possible board adhesion.

Like other Coilcraft CPS products, AE458RFW Series inductors are designed, manufactured and tested to ensure their suitability for mission-critical applications and for use in the most adverse environmental conditions. 

AE458RFW transformers are available with 30-day delivery.
