Introducing the industry’s first off-the-shelf Shielded RF Surface Mount (SMT) Inductors with Established Reliability (ER) rating. The first-ever shielded ER SMT series, the ER5025S, complements MIL-PRF-39010 Qualified Product List (QPL) axial-leaded (thru-hole) products and enables their conversion to SMT circuitry via this new MIL-PRF-39010 qualified SMT series. This series was developed in response to a market need for shielded surface mount options to the traditional thru-hole designs. SMT components enable the use of more efficient assembly methods when compared to thru-hole methods. The ER5025S series meets the military’s QPL requirements for ER to failure rate level M and addresses two MIL-PRF-39010 slash numbers (/17 and /18). This qualification required extensive testing for electrical, environmental, mechanical, and thermal performance.
