The PLS Series from Passive Plus are Thin Film Spiral Inductors with an inductance value from 1.2 to 2.8 nH. They have a Q factor of 14 @ 500 MHz and have 1.5 – 7 turns. These inductors have a thin film gold spiral pattern on a substrate and can be used in a wide variety of applications from DC to RF. They have an optional polyimide coating over the coil which increases resistance to scratches or shorts. A second corner pad is provided for easy wire-bonding from the center pad for edge contact mounting. These inductors can be used in electronic filters to separate signals of different frequencies, to block AC while allowing DC to pass, and in combination with capacitors to make tuned circuits.
