Rf & Mw Air Coils

Precise Stripped Air Coil

Piconics Rf & Mw Air Coil Inductors are designed for high frequency applications in the RF, microwave and millimeter wave frequencies. High precision, tight tolerance construction methods and quality control give consistent, controlled performance. The tightest tolerance lead stripping on the market allows for repeatable mounting in to your system. Piconics offers chip mounted versions for ease of assembly, conformal coated coils for rugged environment applications. Our build your own Air Coil Ordering Code allows the designer to order the exact coil they need. Piconics RF & Mw Air Coils are used in a wide variety of commercial, military, test instrumentation and space applications. All coils have the ability to be upscreen tested for military and space applications.
