Coilcraft is a privately held company, founded in 1945 as a custom coil maker for the many television set manufacturers that were clustered around the Chicago area at that time. As the electronics industry matured and diversified, Coilcraft focused on customer needs and continually developed new products. Today, Coilcraft produces inductors for a long list of customers worldwide in telecommunications, computers, instrumentation and other electronic products. Coilcraft CPS was a direct outgrowth of that customer focus. Customers need products designed, manufactured and tested to ensure their suitability for life-critical applications and for use in adverse environmental conditions. In order to accomplish this, Coilcraft CPS tests components to extremes, far exceeding ratings of standard commercial parts. Additionally, components can be certified to meet unique customer requirements. Components are manufactured, tested and certified without third-party value-adds or testing, assuring complete and documented control of all processes. And because no outside services are required, costs and delivery timelines are both reduced. Available value-added services include tinning, with either lead or RoHS materials, custom environmental and electrical testing and much more. For applications requiring an extended temperature range (–55°C to +155°C) or a greater level of shock and vibration endurance, these robust families of parts meet the rigors of these most demanding environments.
