World's Highest Inductance Values!! Commencing Mass Production of Ultra Compact 0603 Size High-Frequency Chip Inductors for Smartphones: The LQP03TN_02 Series

Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. is proud to announce that it has now commercialized chip inductors with an inductance of 270 nH — the largest in the industry for the 0603 size. These inductors are optimal for use in high-frequency circuits in smartphones, mobile phones and other small mobile devices. Among our ultracompact 0603-size (0.6 x 0.3 x 0.3mm) film-type high-frequency chip inductors,*1 in addition to the previously available 0.6-120 nH products, we have increased the inductance so that our lineup now includes products that are compatible with inductances from 150-270 nH (LQP03TN_02 series) . Mass production commenced in August.

As smartphones and other compact mobile devices come to support multiple frequencies, and have more and more functions that have become more sophisticated, a greater number of parts are being mounted. Yet these mobile devices are becoming smaller and smaller, raising the need for even smaller and thinner chip inductors. With this background, a major challenge has been to achieve high inductance while reducing the size of parts.

By applying Murata's unique microfabrication technology and revising the internal structure, we have been able to form optimal coils for the interior to achieve the world's highest inductance for the ultra-compact 0603 size while maintaining world class Q.*2 Up until now, Murata's 0603-size high-frequency chip inductors could only achieve inductance values of 0.6-120 nH. We have now increased this to 150-270 nH, thereby increasing the degree of freedom in circuit design. The inductance deviation is ±5%. Going forward, we will continue to decrease this deviation while simultaneously increasing the inductance values.

This product does not use any substances that are restricted by the RoHS directive.

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

“We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner Engin…


TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection.

The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.

IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies

IDEC Corporation announces the PS5R-V line of DIN-rail power supplies, offering their customers high-efficiency in a compact form factor at competitive prices. These power supplies suit a wide range of needs in the industrial marketplace, and carry all of the required certifications necessary for use in these demanding applications. This next generation of the industry standard PS5R power supply family has updated features and specifications to meet current and future needs.

The PS5R-V line of power supplies includes 10W, 15W, 30W, 60W and 120W versions, with additional versions coming soon. These power supplies have a very compact form factor with overall dimensions reduced by up to 25% from previous generations. The reduced form factors combine with DIN-rail mounting to free up valuable control panel space and reduce installation costs.

Operating temperature ranges up to -25 to +75 degrees C offer more versatility. These extended operating temperature ranges often allow these power…
