May-2017Non-magnetic chip inductors for RF applications

FASTRON has added a family of non-magnetic chip inductors to its product catalogue. Based on FASTRON’s standard chip inductors, the non-magnetic chokes are available in size 0402, 0603, 0805, 1008, 1206, 1210 and 1812. All non-magnetic models have the designation ASM (e.g. 0402ASM, 1210ASM…). The ASM-models are constructed using a ceramic core with non-magnetic alloy pad metallization, enameled copper wire and have an epoxy cap for automated production. The electrical values of the ASM-models are comparable to that of the standard (AS) models and the temperature range is -40°C to +150°C (including component self-heating).

Major applications for the ASM chip inductors are MRI and flow metering, but they can also be used in keyless entry, GPS, mobile phones and in all other applications of a wire wound RF inductor.

The ASM chip inductors are available in tape & reel only. For more detailed information, please refer on the datasheets.


May-20171210FTC Transponder Coil

FASTRON introduces the new 1210FTC – a wire wound transponder coil with a mini size (3.8mm x 3.0mm x 2.4 mm) and high quality of ferrite core use.

The 1210FTC offers an inductance range of 1mH to 1.29mH with high sensitivity of 10mV/µT to 12mV/µT. The DC resistance of the ferrite core chip inductor is depending on the inductance between 32Ω to 46.5Ω and the operating temperature is from -40°C to +85°C. The self-resonant frequency of the 1210FTC is approximately 1.7MHz.

Major applications for the 1210FTC are RFID, automotive, smart home and security applications.

The 1210FTC is available in tape & reel package with quantities of 800 (option -01) and 3000 (option -04) on a reel. As with all FASTRON components, the 1210FTC is suitable for lead-free soldering and is RoHS compliant.
