Advantages of Glass-based High-Q Inductors

High-Q inductors from 3D Glass Solutions substantially reduce form-factors and offer improved performance over competitive technologies.

Our unique inductor solutions offer both high-power and high-quality factor designs for microwave and RF frequencies.

The advantages inductors from 3D Glass Solutions include:

  • Inductances ranging from 1 - 16 nH
  • Up to 3 Amps of current handling
  • Q-Factors > 50
  • Inductor thicknesses <100 microns
  • Wire bonding and surface mount device assembly options
  • Wafer-level packaging for cost effective manufacturing
  • Micron-scale manufacturing precision ensures tight performance distribution
