This enables GCG to offer a broader range of innovative inductor and transformer solutions to the design community.

Gowanda, NY (USA) – Gowanda Components Group is pleased to announce that its offerings of RF and microwave passive magnetic components are expanding in connection with the acquisition of HiSonic in Olathe, Kansas.

“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.”

Terms of the deal were not disclosed but GCG has stated that HiSonic’s operations will remain in Olathe, Kansas. In addition to Olathe, GCG has four other production facilities located within the United States.

This is the seventh acquisition for GCG within the last six years. For more information about GCG, the acquisitions or HiSonic please contact Denis Kohlhagen, VP of Sales for GCG, at sales@gowanda.com or call +1-716-532-2234. You can also visit GCG’s booth #1735 at the International Microwave Symposium (IMS2018) for additional information.

The individual business units that support Gowanda Components Group include Gowanda Electronics, DYCO Electronics, Butler Winding, Communication Coil, TTE Filters, Microwave Circuits, Instec Filters and now HiSonic.

High Performance Surface Mount RF Inductors to be Featured at IMS

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.

Shielded Surface Mount RF Inductors with Higher Inductance

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.

First in Industry – RF Surface Mount Inductors with Established Reliability

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.
