Compact Chip Inductor offers inductance values to 270 nH.

Press Release Summary:

Available in 0603 (EIA 0201) package measuring 0.6 x 0.3 x 0.3 mm, LQP03TN-02 series offers inductance values from 150 to 270 nH, inductance deviation is within ±5%, and Q factor of 5. This compact chip inductor, optimized via proprietary microfabrication technology and internal structure design, targets high frequency circuits in smart/cellular phones and other small portable wireless devices.

Original Press Release:

Murata Commences Mass Production of the World's First 270 nH 0603 (EIA 0201) Size Chip Inductor

Hoofddorp, Netherlands: Murata today announced what is believed to be the world’s first 270 nH chip inductor available in a 0603 (EIA 0201) sized package measuring 0.6 x 0.3 x 0.3 mm. Extending the LQP series line-up of ultra compact high frequency inductors that previously were available from 0.6 to 120 nH, the LQP03TN-02 series now adds inductance values from 150 to 270 nH.

Specifically targeting high frequency circuits in smart phones, cellular phones and other small portable wireless devices the production of such large inductor values have been possible by applying Murata’s unique microfabrication technology and by revising the internal structure.

Inductance deviation is within +/- 5% and the inductors have a high Q factor of 5.

Mass production commenced during August 2012.
