AVX Corporation developed two new high frequency ultra-broadband inductor (UBL) series. Designated the GLM and GLN Series, the unique components provide extremely low insertion loss and excellent matching over multiple octaves of the frequency spectrum. Developed specifically to deliver repeatable and reliable ultra-broadband performance up through 40 GHz, the new GLM and GLN Series surface mount broadband inductors provide maximum inductance in a compact physical space, making them ideal for applications including: semiconductor data communications, receiver optical sub-assemblies, transimpedance amplifiers, and test equipment manufacturers.
Ultra-broadband performance, ultra-low insertion loss, excellent return loss, and extreme part-to-part performance and repeatability, enables their use in both ultra-broadband decoupling networks and bias tee applications in optical communications systems, as well as in equipment using high speed digital logic.
Available in two sizes, M and N, the GLM and GLN Series are rated for -55 °C to +125 °C and offer several critical performance advantages including: flat frequency response, excellent insertion and return loss, a rugged powdered iron core, and lead-free, RoHS compliant terminations.
