Murata Realizes The World's Largest Inductance Value In An Ultra-Miniature 0402 size

Murata Manufacturing has recently developed a film-type high-frequency chip inductor that has the world's largest inductance value of 39 nH. Including this inductor, we have added four items to the lineup of our LQP02TN series, and commenced mass production in April 2013.
Along with the increase in the number of components used in smartphones and other compact mobile devices to cope with the increasing miniaturization and functional enhancement of these devices, the use of ultra-miniature 0402-size components is gaining momentum. Murata has mass-produced the conventional LQP02TN series and also the LQP02TQ series that has high Q value characteristics, as high-frequency inductors of ultra-miniature size.

Recently, we have added four items between 22 nH and 39 nH to the lineup of our 0.2 – 20nH conventional LQP02TN series. By further developing our unique fine-forming technology that is the most significant feature of the LQP series, we have realized the world's largest inductance value of 39 nH in the 0402 size. As a result of this addition to the lineup of our LQP02TN series, the current lineup covers the range between 0.2 nH and 39 nH and consists of 59 items, a world record in which we take pride. Regarding the deviation of the inductance value as well, we can cope with narrow deviations of ±0.1 nH (0.2 – 4.2 nH) and ±3% (4.3 – 39 nH) .

Our extensive lineup and ability to provide inductance values with narrow deviations improve the number of degrees of freedom in circuit design employing the ultra-miniature 0402 size and also contribute to further miniaturization and functional enhancement of electronic devices such as smartphones. Going forward, we will strive to further widen the available range of inductance values, improve the Q characteristics, and promote the development of further miniaturization.

This product does not contain any substances restricted by the RoHS directive.
