Coilcraft has been around as long
as I can recall since beginning my electronics career in the 1970s. In fact, Coilcraft
was founded in 1945 near Chicago to make custom coils for television sets. They
began manufacturing a line of standard products in the 1970s - no doubt with supporting
my budding career in mind ;-) Inductors and magnetics are their primary focus.
Coilcraft has been an industry leader in surface mount components, and was one of
the first to provide packaging that could be used by pick-and-place automatic PCB
Recognizing the value of introducing the company
brand and products early in the lives of people who will spend the next many decades
specifying and designing inductors into commercial, military, medical, and aerospace
products, Coilcraft put a lot of resources into making both hardware and software
tools available to students. They are now offering free of charge to qualified ECE
instructors and lab managers. Click the image to the right to request an
RF Magnetics Lab
Kit and/or a
Power Magnetics Lab Kit.
Nuhertz Technologies has teamed
with Coilcraft to provide a custom version of their
FilterSolutions® software that can be downloaded free of charge.
It uses models of various size Coilcraft inductors for synthesizing 3, 5, and 7-pole
lowpass filters that include coil Q effects on the transfer function. A 30-day trial
version of the full version is offered, and Nuhertz its own
FilterFree that is a generic filter synthesis program for up to 3 poles (LP,
HP, BP, BS, LC and active).
You don't need to be a student to receive free samples. Simply fill out and submit
the Sample Request
Form and they will be shipped within 24 hours.
has a separate Critical Products
and Services division that handles non-commercial product lines for military,
aerospace, medical, and other high reliability applications.
Please tell the Coilcraft and Nuhertz folks you read about them on RF Cafe.
