RLC Electronics has released its latest surface-mount cavity filter centered at 19.2 GHz, with 50 dB (minimum) attenuation at 18.6 and 19.8 GHz. These filters are perfect for small-scale, low-profile system integration which require low loss and high Q filters, and are suitable for reflow attachment, providing savings on size, cost and weight. This type of design achieves rejection of 60 dBc up to 3x and VSWR > 15 dB.
IHSR High Temperature Inductor
Vishay Intertechnology Inc. introduced a new AEC-Q200 qualified IHSR high temperature inductor in the 7.4 x 6.6 x 3.0 mm 2525 case size. Designed for multi-phase, high current power supplies and filters in automotive under the hood and ADAS applications, the Vishay Dale IHSR-2525CZ-5A offers a 50 percent reduction in DCR over typical power inductors and excellent temperature stability for inductance and saturation compared to ferrite solutions. The automotive grade inductor is optimized for energy storage in DC/DC converters up to 10 MHz.
