This Ultra-Broadband Inductor is a passive, broadband inductor (frequency range is roughly 160 KHz – 40 GHz). Its unique Pyramid shape provides a tighter "wrap" of the copper wire around its core to provide maximum inductance in the space available. This shape also makes it easier to handle the part when hand soldering is required. These inductors can be used in many circuit-level and system-level RF applications, including: broadband decoupling networks, bias tee circuits (in optical communication systems), and in equipment using high-speed digital technology.
We stock an assortment of Ultra-Broadband Inductors, each of which provides low insertion loss and an excellent match over multiple octaves of frequency spectrum. In fact, these inductors provide broadband performance (excellent return loss) from around 1 MHz (or so) through 40 GHz. They also include a rugged powdered iron core.
Specific attributes which are important in selecting the right Ultra-Broadband Inductor for your application include: Inductance (µH); Minimum Frequency (MHz or KHz); Maximum Frequency (GHz); DC Resistance (Ω); DC Current (mA); Insertion Loss (dB); and Return Loss (dB).

The parametric search filter allows the user to quickly find the parts they need by filtering the results in real-time.
Additionally, some attributes allow for the conversion of their base type to different types. For example, the attribute group for minimum frequency is shown in MHz. The values can be converted to be shown in KHz or GHz by selecting the conversion type from the ‘Select Conversion’ drop down list.
Any Attribute that does not interest the user can be hidden by clicking on the ‘X” in the upper-right corner of the attribute. To show any hidden attributes, simply click the ‘Unhide Attributes’ button in the bottom of the parametric search filter.
If you are experiencing performance issues, please use a newer browser such as Chrome or Firefox, or disable the ability of the filter to perform dynamic updates by deselecting the checkbox titled ‘Allow Filters to Dynamically Update Parametric Search Attributes’.
