Cal-Chip's SMT Wirewound Inductor Series Addresses High-Density, Compact Design Requirements
Ivyland, PA, October 27, 2005...Available from Cal-Chip Electronics, Inc., a premier manufacturer of quality surface mount passive components, is the comprehensive NL Series of molded chip wirewound inductors. Offered in standard EIA sizes 1008 (NL2520), 1210 (NL3225), and 1812 (NL4532), the series' packages are compatible with high-speed pick-and-place assembly equipment, and are suitable for high-temperature flow or reflow soldering processes. Reliable, miniature, and economic, the inductors notably feature metal tab electrodes to ensure leaching resistant terminations, and coils encapsulated in heatproof resin for superior resistance to thermal shock, moisture, mechanical shock, and vibration. Available in lead-free/RoHS-compliant part numbers, these small, thin, lightweight devices are engineered to optimize performance and manufacturing efficiencies while maximizing design flexibility on high-density, PC boards.
Due to their small-footprint wirewound chip design, the NL Series inductors may be confidently specified for use in a broad array of appliances, instrumentation, and onboard automotive equipment, including car audio. Additional applications include such audio/video equipment as TVs and VCRs, as well as such hand-held consumer products as mobile phones and PDAs. They are also well suited for use in hybrid ICs and other modular components.
Cal-Chip's NL series offers an inductance range of .01 to 1000 microhenry, with inductance tolerances of +/-5%, +/-10%, and +/-20%. Rated current value obtained when current flows and the temperature has risen to 20 degrees C or when DC current flows and the initial value of inductance has fallen by 10%, whichever is smaller. Inductors feature an operating temperature range of -20 to +100 degrees C.
In standard production quantities, Cal-Chip's NL Series of surface mount wirewound chip inductors' prices range from $0.045 to $0.08 each in tape and reel sizes. Delivery is from stock.
