Associated Components Technology – ACT

Associated Components Technology ACT logo
Associated Components Technology, Inc. ACT is a manufacturer of electronic inductors, coils, chokes, transformers and other magnetics, components that produce the characteristic of inductance in printed circuit boards. ACT manufactures both surface mount and conventional through hole types.

ACT specializes in ultra fast turnaround of large production quantities. ACT understands that in many industries, product lifecycles are much too short for long component lead times. So instead of deliveries 12, 16 or even 20 weeks from now, ACT offers you quantity in six weeks and often less. With many years of magnetics design experience, ACT’s engineers will develop a product to meet your specific requirements or will innovate a new design to help expand your circuit possibilities.

ACT serves more than 200 OEM, CEM, EMS and design engineering customers, ranging from emerging companies to some of the largest electronics manufactuerers in the world. In all cases ACT strives to provide the highest quality and reliability, coupled with unparalleled service, at competitive prices.

Inductors are one of the most important components in electronics. Commonly used to store energy, they can also be used as RF chokes. As current passes through an inductor, it creates a magnetic field around the coil. The strength of this magnetic field represents the stored energy. The measure of an inductor’s ability to store energy is called inductance, measured in Henries (H) and represented by the letter L.

Associated Components Technology (ACT) is a leading manufacturer and supplier of electronic passive components. They specialize in producing a wide range of components, including capacitors, inductors, resistors, and integrated passive devices (IPDs). These components are essential building blocks in electronic circuits, used in various industries such as automotive, telecommunications, consumer electronics, and industrial applications.


ACT was founded in 1986 and has since grown to become a significant player in the electronic components industry. They have a global presence with manufacturing facilities in Asia, North America, and Europe. This global reach allows them to serve customers worldwide efficiently.

Main Products

  • Capacitors: These are available in various types, such as ceramic, tantalum, aluminum electrolytic, and film capacitors. Capacitors are used for storing and releasing electrical energy in circuits.

  • Inductors: Inductors are coils of wire that store energy in a magnetic field. They are used in filters, transformers, and various other applications.

  • Resistors: Resistors are used to limit current in a circuit. ACT produces a variety of resistors, including surface mount, through-hole, and precision resistors.

  • Integrated Passive Devices (IPDs): These are integrated circuits that contain passive components like resistors, capacitors, and inductors. They offer space-saving solutions for circuit design.


ACT's components are used in a wide range of applications, including:

  • Consumer Electronics: Smartphones, laptops, tablets, and other consumer devices use ACT components for their compact size and high performance.
