Gowanda First in Industry to Offer 0603/0805 QPL RF Chip Inductors

Gowanda Electronics, a US-based designer and manufacturer of precision electronic components for power and radio frequency applications, announced that the company recently achieved qualification to the military’s MIL-PRF-83446 (/36A and /37A) for its ML0603 and ML0805 series of RF surface mount wirewound ceramic core chip inductors. These are the first series in the industry to address the market need for Qualified Product List (QPL) inductors which meet this particular Department of Defense specification.

Gowanda’s ML0603 Series is QPL approved to MIL-PRF-83446/36A and provides inductance from 1.8 to 270 nH, Q Min from 16 to 40, SRF MHz Min from 600 to 6000, DCR Ohms Max from .07 to 1.78 and Current Rating DC mA from 195 to 1000. The ML0805 Series is qualified to MIL-PRF-83446/37A and provides inductance from 2.2 to 2200 nH, Q Min from 15 to 65, SRF MHz Min from 40 to 6000, DCR Ohms Max from .08 to 5.0 and Current Rating DC mA from 140 to 1000. Both series are wirewound coils with ceramic cores and gold terminations. Operating temperature for each series is -55°C to +125°C. The inductors are available in tape and reel and are suitable for reflow soldering. (See links to technical information below)            

Gowanda Electronics’ proprietary epoxy capping technique provides uniform dimensional stability for pick-and-place assembly and assures environmental and mechanical protection of the coil.

The ML0603 and ML0805 Series are designed for RF applications in military, aerospace and defense communities. This includes use in communication, guidance and security applications, as well as in radar, test & evaluation and special mission applications. These series can also be used in other high frequency applications around the world where the rigorous testing associated with these QPL-approved inductors makes them desirable for high reliability (hi rel) designs.
