This work presents the influence of Nb2O5 additions on the ferroelectric–ferromagnetic composite material. We studied the electromagnetic properties depended on Nb2O5 content and the sintering temperature. Results show an increasing initial permeability and a decreasing dielectric loss with the increase of Nb2O5 content. Quality factor has a complicated change trend with the increasing Nb2O5 at different sintering temperature. Increasing Nb2O5 content deteriorates Q factor at relatively low sintering temperature 880 °C and improve Q factor at 900 °C sintering temperature.
