Eaton MCL & WCL Series

Eaton MCL and WCL series chip inductors

The MCL family of chip inductors are small-footprint components with a multilayer construction that provides a great balance between Q-factor, direct current resistance (DCR), and inductance tolerance

Eaton MCL And WCL Series Chip Inductors

Eaton’s WCL family of chip inductors feature a wire-wound construction on a ceramic core. They are low-profile components which offer an extremely high Q-factor, high current-handling capability, and are suitable for use in RF matching in antennas, Bluetooth/Wi-Fi devices, power amplifier circuits, resonance tuning in IF circuits, and more. 

The MCL family of chip inductors are small-footprint components with a multilayer construction that provides a great balance between Q-factor, direct current resistance (DCR), and inductance tolerance. Eaton’s MCL inductors are suitable for a wide range of industrial applications, such as in RF matching for wireless devices, as Chokes/filters to minimize EMI in circuits, and for resonance setting in mobile communications equipment.
