Gowanda Electronics announced that the company recently achieved qualification to the military’s MIL-PRF-83446 (/36A and /37A) for its ML0603 and ML0805 series of RF surface mount wirewound ceramic core chip inductors. These are said to be the first series in the industry to address the market need for Qualified Product List (QPL) inductors which meet this particular Department of Defense specification. Gowanda’s ML0603 Series is QPL approved to MIL-PRF-83446/36A and provides inductance from 1.8 nH to 270 nH, Q Min from 16 to 40, SRF MHz Min from 600 to 6000, DCR Ohms Max from .07 to 1.78 and current rating DC mA from 195 to 1000. The ML0805 Series is qualified to MIL-PRF-83446/37A and provides inductance from 2.2 nH to 2200 nH, Q Min from 15 to 65, SRF MHz Min from 40 to 6000, DCR Ohms Max from.08 to 5.0 and Current Rating DC mA from 140 to 1000. Both series are wirewound coils with ceramic cores and gold terminations. Operating temperature for each series is -55°C to +125°C.
