The dimensions of Gowanda Electronics’ new non-magnetic molded RF inductor SMG1812 are 4.8 x 3.4 x 3.5 mm. The overall size is more than 40% smaller than Gowanda's SMG3013 series. Gowanda's development of smaller inductor designs is in response to the ongoing market trend for smaller devices and therefore smaller components. Inductors (in their role as filters) block certain frequencies that otherwise would compromise the performance of equipment or devices. Gowanda's SMG1812 was designed specifically for applications that are magnetically sensitive and therefore require non-magnetic components. Relevant applications telecommunications, security systems, instrumentation, laboratory analysis equipment, aviation equipment, navigation equipment and electronic test equipment. Gowanda's SMG1812 components (and the other series in the MG product line) are manufactured using a proprietary company-developed methodology that assures the inductors have non-magnetic characteristics.
