RCD Components, an affiliate of GCG, announces the hiring of Gerald Brimmer as its new President and General Manager. Jerry brings strong engineering and business skills to the position along with over 30 years in the electronics manufacturing arena. The RCD team in Manchester, New Hampshire is happy to have him on board!
TTI, Inc., a leading specialty distributor of electronic components, is now an authorized North American distributor of Gowanda’s inductors and chokes for RF, microwave and power applications. “The depth and breadth of TTI’s distribution network will assure that Gowanda’s high performance inductors are readily-available to electronic engineers designing next-generation products for industrial, military and medical applications around the world,” said Don McElheny.
RCD’s resistors, capacitors, coils and delay lines augment GCG’s inductor offerings. The acquisition also expands the company’s design capabilities and manufacturing facilities thereby enhancing GCG’s ability to address board level design challenges in the global electronics marketplace. There are now ten affiliates in the Gowanda Components Group.
New Surface Mount and Flying Lead Configurations Enhance Utility.
New C102FL, C102SM, C182FL and C182SM conical series address need of global electronics design community for more high performance RF broadband component options in communication applications.
Contract manufacturer of high-reliability products will operate as “Gowanda REM-tronics”.
It will maintain operations in Dunkirk, NY, bringing the total number of GCG production facilities to six, across the United States. There are now nine affiliates in the Gowanda Components Group.
Gowanda’s flying lead design provides highest DC current handling capability in the industry.
The 4 new series – C305FL, C550FL, C750FL and C1000FL – offer performance ranges for inductance from 0.30 µH to 22 µH, Q from 30 to 66, DCR ohms from 0.02 to 0.265 and current rating mA DC from 1300 to 10500. These series will be featured at the 2019 Optical Networking and Communication Conference in San Diego, March 5 to 7. Stop by Gowanda’s booth #5417 for more information.
This enables GCG to offer a broader range of innovative inductor and transformer solutions to the design community.
“HiSonic’s designs, technologies and customers complement those within our Magnetics Division” said GCG CEO Don McElheny. “The synergy in our capabilities and applications will enable us to offer a broader range of innovative inductor and transformer solutions to design engineers in commercial, medical, microwave, military, space and other markets around the world.”
These series deliver nearly 2X or more improvement in SRF and Current Rating compared to traditional designs.
The CC4H (ceramic core) and CF4H (ferrite core) series are each available in 3 physical sizes. The performance ranges include inductance from 0.0082 µH to 1000 µH, Q min from 30 to 75, SRF MHz min from 2 to 4000, DCR ohms max from 0.060 to 30 and Current Rating mA DC from 96 to 2430. These series respond to the market need for ever-increasing component performance for RF applications in commercial, medical and military markets.
Gowanda expanded its SML32S “1210” Shielded Series raising the upper level of inductance to 470 uH and increasing the number of parts by 20%.
The performance range provided by the expanded SML32S series includes inductance from 0.1 uH to 470 uH, DCR ohms max from 0.15 to 25 and current rating mA DC from 91 to 1175. This series expansion responds to the market need for higher inductance shielded inductors for RF applications in commercial, medical and military communities. That includes use in communication, guidance, security, radar and test & evaluation.
Gowanda’s ER5025S provides MIL-PRF-39010 qualified inductors in surface mount configuration for military and other high reliability RF applications.
This series complements MIL-PRF-39010 QPL axial-leaded (thru-hole) products and enables their conversion to SMT circuitry via this new MIL-PRF-39010 qualified SMT series. ER5025S meets QPL’s ER requirements to failure rate level M (for /17 and /18). The performance ranges provided by this series include inductance from 0.10 to 10,000 µH, Q min from 40 to 60, SRF MHz min from 1.0 to 450, DCR Ohms max from 0.025 to 139, and current rating mA DC from 30 to 2245.
