AVX Releases New LCCI Series Ultraminiature Multilayer Ceramic Chip Inductors for High-Frequency RF Applications

The new ultraminiature SMT inductors deliver outstanding reliability & performance from 100MHz to 2.4GHz, exhibiting high Q, low DCR, tight inductance tolerances down to ±0.1nH, & guaranteed SRF up to 10GHz in applications including telecom & networking

FOUNTAIN INN, S.C. (March 29, 2021) – AVX Corporation, a leading manufacturer and supplier of advanced electronic components and interconnect, sensor, control, and antenna solutions, released a new series of ultraminiature multilayer ceramic chip inductors for high-frequency RF applications. The new LCCI Series inductors are currently available in three standard EIA chip sizes — 0201, 0402, and 0603 — with tight-tolerance physical dimensions almost exclusively in the submillimeter range and tin-plated surface-mount terminations, enabling compatibility with high-density PCBs and reflow soldering in space- and weight-constrained applications within the telecommunications and networking markets, as well as with lead-free and RoHS directives. The series also delivers outstanding reliability and performance from 100MHz to 2.4GHz, exhibiting high Q, high signal efficiencies, low DC resistance (DCR), tight inductance tolerances down to ±0.1nH, and guaranteed self-resonant frequencies (SRF) up to 10GHz. Ideal applications include mobile communications and computer networking systems, wireless large-area networks (WLAN), radio-frequency identification (RFID) systems, personal handheld systems (PHS) ranging from smartphones and tablets to media players and gaming devices, and EMI countermeasures in high-frequency circuits.

“Our new LCCI Series inductors are constructed with tight physical tolerances using our proven multilayer ceramic material and processing technologies to ensure proper fit and function and are subjected to rigorous testing conditions to validate that they meet or exceed all of the requirements necessary to deliver exceptional performance and outstanding reliability in a wide range of high-frequency applications,” said Mohammed Abu-Naim, RF product manager, AVX.

LCCI Series ultraminiature multilayer ceramic chip inductors are rated for use in operating temperatures spanning -40°C to +85°C and are available with three standard inductance values: 3.9nH, 39nH, and 390nH and seven standard inductance tolerances: 2%, 3%, 5%, 10%, 0.1nH, 0.2nH, 0.3nH. Inductance values for 0201 parts extend from 0.3nH to 39nH with inductance tolerances ranging from ±0.1nH to ±5% and minimum SRF values spanning 1,500MHz to 10,000MHz. Inductance values for 0402 parts extend from 0.3nH to 150nH with inductance tolerances ranging from ±0.1nH to ±5% and minimum SRF values spanning 550MHz to 10,000MHz. Inductance values for 0603 parts extend from 1.0nH to 470nH with inductance tolerances ranging from ±0.3nH to ±5% and minimum SRF values spanning 300MHz to 10,000MHz.

The series is also competitively priced, packaged on tape and reel, compatible with pick-and-place processing equipment, and currently available with a 12-week lead-time.

Understanding Functional Safety FIT Base Failure Rate Estimates per IEC 62380 and SN 29500

Sponsored by Texas Instruments

Functional safety standards such as IEC 61508 and ISO 26262 require semiconductor device manufacturers to address both systematic and random hardware failures. Base failure rates (BFR) quantify the intrinsic reliability of the semiconductor component while operating under normal environmental conditions. Download our white paper which focuses on two widely accepted techniques to estimate the BFR for semiconductor components; estimates per IEC Technical Report 62380 and SN 29500 respectively.

In-Chip Sensing and PVT Monitoring

Sponsored by Synopsys

In-chip monitoring can significantly alter the lifecycle management landscape. By taking advantage of modern techniques, today’s more complex designs can be optimized even after they are deployed. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Stephen Crosher of Synopsys about silicon lifecycle management and how to take full advantage of the optimization opportunities available for scalability, reliability, and much more.
