RF and power applications specialist Gowanda Electronics has recently introduced what it claims as the world's smallest non-magnetic moulded RF inductor series, SMG1812.

As filters, inductors block certain frequencies that otherwise would compromise the performance of equipment or devices. Gowanda's SMG1812 was designed specifically for applications that are magnetically sensitive and therefore require non-magnetic components.

The dimensions of the new SMG1812 are 4.8x3.4x3.5mm. The overall size is more than 40 per cent smaller than Gowanda's SMG3013 series. The company's development of smaller inductor designs is in response to the ongoing market trend for smaller devices and therefore smaller components.

Relevant applications include test equipment & devices and medical diagnostic equipment C specifically imaging equipment such as MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) and particular types of X-ray equipment.

Technical specifications of the SMG1812 series include inductance from 0.01 to 0.082 H, Q min from 35 to 40, SRF Min from 750 to 1000MHz, DCR Max from 0.1 to 0.25?, and current rating DC from 700 to 1230 mA. A RoHS-compliant ("lead-free") version is available and is denoted SMG1812LF.

It is anticipated that this new series from Gowanda will be used not only in the medical industry but also in a wide variety of market applications and industries where magnetic materials and magnetic characteristics must be avoided. These other applications could include use in telecommunications, security systems, instrumentation, laboratory analysis equipment, aviation equipment, navigation equipment and electronic test equipment.
