ATC Launches New 506 WLS Series Ultra-Broadband Surface Mount Inductors

ATC is pleased to introduce the New 506 WLS Series Ultra-Broadband Surface Mount (SMT) Inductors. This unique component has been designed and manufactured with the highest quality materials to provide reliable and repeatable ultra-broadband performance through 40+ GHz. These inductors provide ultra-low insertion loss, flat frequency response and an excellent match over multiple octaves of frequency spectrum.

The 506WLS was designed as a surface mount component making it ideal for pick and place manufacturing operations. The inductor mounting bracket is fabricated from selected material that is transparent at microwave frequencies. These inductors are well suited for many circuit-level and system-level RF and microwave applications.

The 506WLS has been engineered with a powdered iron (ferrite) core and lead-free, RoHS compliant terminations. Its superior broadband performance and reliability make it ideal for high speed optical data communications systems, trans-impedance amplifiers and broadband test equipment applications, to name a few. This product addition expands ATC’s already diverse offering of broadband products.


  • Inductance: 0.47 μH to 10.7 μH
  • Operating frequency range: from 400 KHz to 40+ GHz
  • Low DC resistance
