Digi-Key – Low-profile organic-based inductor can support numerous comms applications (HL021R0BTTR)Aug 9 2012 - Passives [More Passives Articles]
AVX’s MLO inductor is now available from Digi-Key. It is a low-profile, organic-based inductor that can support mobile communications, satellite applications, GPS, matching networks, and collision avoidance systems.
The devices are based on AVX’s patented multilayer organic technology. Copper Organic Inductors (COIs) are polymer based inductors that use high conductivity copper interconnects in a multilayer fashion. The ability to fabricate these components on large area substrates and state of the art laser direct imaging allow for improved cost benefits and tolerance control. The end result is a state of the art High-Q, high SRF, low-profile RF inductor that can support frequencies well above one GHz. Additionally, COIs are expansion matched to printed circuit boards to allow for improved reliability.More news from Digikey
