Frequency inductors halve PCB footprint
Achieving the same industry-leading, high-Q characteristics as previous devices but occupying just half the board mounting area, the LQP01HQ series of high frequency inductors measure 0.25 x 0.125mm. Murata claims they are the world’s smallest high frequency inductors.
The 008004 size inductors are targeted at manufacturers of mobile devices, such as smartphones and wearable products.
The series delivers the same performance as the company’s 01005 size and will be available from August. There will be 25 versions with inductance ratings ranging from 0.3 to 2.7nH, with a range extension of up to 10nH due to be added at the series by the end of 2016.
