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.
