We studied the sintering behavior and magnetic properties of Ni0.60‐yCuyZn0.42Fe1.98O3.99 ferrites. The shrinkage is shifted toward lower temperature with increasing Cu content y. The addition of Bi2O3 sintering aid induces enhanced shrinkage at T < 900°C and dense ceramics are obtained after sintering at 900°C. Such ferrites exhibit a permeability of µ = 135‐250 depending on the composition, sintering temperature and concentration of sintering additive. Ferrites with y = 0.20 show a high Curie temperature of Tc = 307°C. Multilayer inductors were fabricated and cofired at 900°C using ferrite tapes without and with 0.75 wt% Bi2O3. The compatibility of ferrite tapes with different metal pastes (Ag, AgPd, and Au) was evaluated. Ferrite tapes were also integrated between layers of low‐k dielectric CT708 tapes and successfully cofired at 900°C. Preliminary tests indicate that the multilayer inductors can be operated up to temperatures of 250°C. This demonstrates that high‐Tc Ni‐Cu‐Zn ferrites are promising magnetic materials for inductive components for high operating temperatures.
