With the new additions, the GLY Series offers 29 models with inductances in the range of 1.0 nH to 220 nH. Standard tolerance is ± 5% (± 0.3 nH for inductances from 1.0 to 3.3 nH). Tighter tolerance of ± 2% is available (± 0.2 nH for inductances from 1.0 to 3.3 nH). Quantity factor (Q) is high at microwave frequencies, with self-resonant frequencies up to 6 GHz.
These epoxy encapsulated devices are made by laser cutting a helix in copper deposited on an alumina core. The terminals have a solder coat over nickel plating.
