I recently needed some binocular cores for a transformer for a client.
After checking all the distributors, I had to buy 500 of them. Minimum
quantity. So much for one-off hobbyist projects. The reason why I
did not use a MiniCircuits transformer for this client is that the
impedance was much less than 50 ohms. This is one area that
MiniCircuits really does not address.
