AVX ANNOUNCES NEW MODELITHICS MODELS FOR ITS LOW PROFILE 0402 MLO INDUCTOR
SERIES

New simulation-ready models allow RF & microwave design engineers to
accurately model the performance of AVX's 0402 tight tolerance, high current,
& high Q MLO inductor series

GREENVILLE, SC, Oct. 29, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AVX Corporation, a leading
manufacturer of passive components and interconnect solutions, announces the
availability of new Modelithics Models for its 0402 tight tolerance, high
current, and high Q multilayer organic (MLO) inductor series. Part-value
sensitive, substrate scalable, and fully integrated with a range of software
applications (including Agilent ADS, Genesys, and AWR Microwave Office), the
latest additions to AVX's Modelithics Component Model Library allow design
engineers to accurately simulate the performance of its HL, HLC, and HLQ
Series inductors.

Based on AVX's patented MLO™ technology, the inherently low profile HL, HLC,
and HLQ Series inductors exhibit low parasitics, excellent heat dissipation
and solderability, and are surface mountable and expansion matched to FR4
PCBs. Utilizing fine line high density interconnect technology and
incorporating very low loss organic materials, the series also exhibit tight
tolerance control, high repeatability, high Q, and high stability over
frequency, making them ideal for use in mobile communications, satellite, GPS,
collision avoidance, matching network, and wireless LAN applications. 

"Reliable, simulation-ready models like Modelithics Models save designers
considerable amounts of time and money on new designs, so we strive to
continually provide new models, as well as update existing ones, to better
serve our customers," said Larry Eisenberger, senior marketing application
engineer at AVX. "The new Modelithics Models for our tight tolerance, high
current, and high Q 0402 inductors will be particularly beneficial to RF and
microwave designers." 

Rated for use in temperatures spanning -55°C to +125°C, the 0402 HL, HLC, and
HLQ Series MLO inductors exhibit high frequency performance and low DC
resistance, as well as feature RoHS-compliant Sn finishes and tape and reel
packaging. Additionally, all finished parts are 100% tested for electrical
parameters and visual characteristics in accordance with JEDEC and MIL
standards. 

Datasheets and complimentary downloads of the Modelithics Models for AVX's HL,
HLC, and HLQ Series tight tolerance, high current, and high Q 0402 inductors
for RF and microwave applications are available at
