Gowanda, NY (USA) – Gowanda Electronics announces the introduction of a new series of surface mount inductors – SMRF1812 – that offers a robust design with reliable performance, as verified by severe reliability testing. This new series is targeted for use in RF applications where board manufacturers require rugged inductors that will withstand the demands of harsh soldering processes.
Gowanda Electronics’ proprietary manufacturing process for the SMRF1812 series maximizes the robustivity of the device. This is accomplished by centering the coil within the device to maximize stress on internal component parts, and by incorporating a high temperature magnet wire. The design also utilizes a semiconductor grade epoxy molding compound to enhance product quality and reliability.
Reliability testing of the SMRF1812 inductor series was completed by Gowanda Electronics and validates the performance.
