Air Core RF Inductors
AL Series
GENERAL DESCRIPTION
AVX Air Core RF Inductors, part of the wound air core inductor family, are
ideal for RF circuits, broadband I/O filtering, frequency selection, or
impedance matching. The air core inductor provides better performance
over solid core inductors with higher Q, and better current handling
capabilities.
