AVX INTRODUCES TWO NEW HIGH FREQUENCY ULTRA-BROADBAND SMT INDUCTOR SERIES

Providing low insertion loss & excellent matching, the GLM & GLN Series are
ideal for ultra-broadband DC decoupling networks & bias tee applications in
optical communications systems & equipment using high-speed digital logic

GREENVILLE, S.C., Oct. 29, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AVX Corporation, a leading
manufacturer of advanced passive components and interconnect solutions,
recently developed two new high frequency ultra-broadband inductor (UBL)
series. Designated the GLM and GLN Series, the unique components provide
extremely low insertion loss and excellent matching over multiple octaves of
the frequency spectrum. Developed specifically to deliver repeatable and
reliable ultra-broadband performance up through 40 GHz, the new GLM and GLN
Series surface mount broadband inductors provide maximum inductance in a
compact physical space, making them ideal for applications including:
semiconductor data communications, receiver optical sub-assemblies,
transimpedance amplifiers, and test equipment manufacturers.

"The new GLM and GLN Series inductors from AVX provide ultra-broadband
performance in addition to ultra-low insertion loss, excellent return loss,
and extreme part-to-part performance and repeatability, enabling their
employment in both ultra-broadband decoupling networks and bias tee
applications in optical communications systems, as well as in equipment using
high speed digital logic," said Larry Eisenberger, senior marketing
application engineer at AVX.

Available in two sizes, M and N, the GLM and GLN Series are rated for -55oC to
+125oC and offer several critical performance advantages including: flat
frequency response, excellent insertion and return loss, a rugged powdered
iron core, and lead-free, RoHS compliant terminations.
