Murata announces entry into large form factor power inductor market with introduction of 8x8mm wirewound chip coil series
Murata has introduced the LQH88P_38 series of power inductors, supporting up to 8A rated current. These inductors measure 8 x 8 mm (3131-size) with a low profile of just 3.8 mm (typical) and are designed for use in DC-DC converters for flat panel TVs, set-top boxes, recording devices, wireless base stations and other consumer electronics applications.Mura
The LQH88P_38 series possesses excellent DC bias current characteristics and Murata believes this new series will represent a space saving for customers, by replacing larger size or higher profile inductors.
The parts are magnetically shielded by ferrite resin to prevent interference with other devices and circuits. Low DC resistance (down to 0.006 Ohm) and high rated current parts are available. These features contribute to the overall efficiency of a DC-DC converter circuit. The LQH88P_38 series comes in inductance values between 1.0 and 100 µH.
