What is an RF Inductor?
As a way of reducing proximity effect and parasitic capacitance, RF coils are created to not have several turns that are lying close and parallel to each other. RF coils have windings that are usually wound on a single layer, with turns spaced apart. In order to diminish resistance because of skin effect, the windings in an RF inductor may be made of metal with a larger silver-plated surface area.
Types of RF Inductors
There are several different kinds of RF inductors. At Future Electronics we stock many of the most common types categorized by Nominal Inductance, Self Resonance Frequency, Maximum Rated Current, Maximum DC Resistance, Tolerance and Packaging Type. The parametric filters on our website can help refine your search results depending on the required specifications.
The most common sizes for Nominal Inductance are 1 µH and 10 µH. We also carry RF inductors with Nominal Inductance up to 2700 H. Self Resonance Frequency can be between 950000 Hz and 20 GHz.
