AVX (Greenville, SC) recently announced that the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) has issued drawings for high-reliability versions of its Accu-L Series thin film inductors in 0402, 0603, and 0805 case sizes. The series features:

  • Low inductance values (0.56 nH).
  • Tight inductor tolerances (±0.05 nH).
  • High Q.
  • High SRF.
  • High current capabilities at VHF, UHF, and microwave frequencies.
  •  Low parasitics. 

Ideal applications for the series include filters, global positioning systems, matching networks, mobile communications, radar systems, RF modules, and VCOs. 

Intended to prevent the proliferation of contractor-developed drawings that describe generic microcircuits as though they were program-unique devices, DLA drawings are standardized government documents that present all of the applicable specs for existing high-reliability microcircuits designed for use in military applications.
