Murata has developed two new series of low-profile wirewound chip inductors for use in DC-DC converter applications. Both the LQH3NP_M0 series and LQH3NP_G0 series of inductors offer low DC resistance, vital for DC-DC converter applications as it prevents energy dissipation from the inductor, improving the converter's overall efficiency.
The new ranges deliver an industry leading size vs. performance ratio with low DC resistances of 0.044ohm ±20% (LQH3NP_M0) and 0.08ohm ±20% (LQH3NP_G0). The series’ compact and low-profile 1212 size packaging is designed to save space, measuring 3x3x1 mm (LQH3NP_G0) or 3x3x1.5mm (LQH3NP_M0).
A wide range of inductances is available: 1.0 to 100µH for the LQH3NP_M0 series, and 1.0 to 250µH for the lower profile LQH3NP_G0 series. The parts come with high rated currents, up to 2.05A, and feature excellent magnetic shielding as standard. Operating temperature is -40 to 85 degrees C.
