Wirewound Ferrite Beads

Provide superior broadband performance as EMI chokes vs traditional chip ferrite beads.
Learn more about wirewound ferrite beads in our Getting Started Series

Coilcraft wirewound ferrite beads provide superior broadband performance compared to both low- and high-DCR chip ferrite beads.

Figure 1 compares the Coilcraft 0402DF-12 wirewound ferrite bead to the lowest-DCR 0402-sized chip ferrite bead. The 0402DF offers higher impedance across the frequency range, providing a greater measure of filtering from 100 MHz and above.

Figure 2 compares the same Coilcraft 0402DF-12 wirewound ferrite bead to the typical high-DCR chip ferrite bead. The 0402DF maintains the same high frequency attenuation while providing higher current ratings and 40 percent better DCR.

  • Better attenuation across frequencies
  • Best performance in the smallest size
  • Lower DC resistance (DCR)
  • Higher current ratings without core saturation
