Vishay's New Thin Film Chip Inductors in Compact 0402 and 0603 Cases Provide Typical Q Values up to 49 at Frequency Range of 100 MHz to 1700 MHz
MALVERN, PENNSYLVANIA — March 30, 2005 — Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today announced the release of two new thin film chip inductors in compact 0402 and 0603 case sizes that provide high Q values up to 49 at specified frequencies from 100 MHz to 1700 MHz.
The new Vishay Dale IFCB-0402 and IFCB-0603 are designed to provide stable inductance during high-frequency operation in communications devices such as cell phones, pagers, GPS devices, and wireless LANs, as well as for VCO, TCXO circuit, and RF transceiver modules.
The IFCB-0402 provides inductance values ranging from 1.0 nH to 22 nH, while the IFCB-0603 is available in a range of values between 1.0 nH and 68 nH. Both inductors feature inductance tolerance of 0.3 nH from 1.0 nH to 8.2 nH, with 2% and 5% tolerances available.
With dimensions of 0.039 in. by 0.02 in. [1.0 mm by 0.5 mm] and 0.063 in. by 0.031 in. [1.60 mm by 0.80 mm] and height profiles of 0.013 in. [0.32 mm] and 0.018 in. [0.45 mm], respectively, the lightweight IFCB-0402 and IFCB-0603 allow for design of smaller end products for communications markets. They feature a lead (Pb)-free and RoHS-compliant construction and are compatible with reflow or flow soldering.
The inductors are rated for operation over a temperature range of −40 °C to +125 °C with no load and for −40 °C to +80 °C at full rated current, which at 1.0 nH reaches 700 mA for the IFCB-0402 and 800 mA for the IFCB-0603.
Samples and production quantities of the new inductors are available now. Lead time for production quantities is six to eight weeks.
