Murata Electronics North America has introduced the LQP02TN Series chip inductor 01005 sized. By utilising Murata's advanced micro-fabrication technology and optimising the internal coil formation, the inductor's dimensions are 0.4-by-0.2-by-0.2mm. This allows a 40 per cent reduction in mounting space when compared to conventional 0201 Electronic Industries Association (EIA) sized inductors.

The LQP02TN series is suitable for use in high-frequency circuits found in compact mobile equipment such as cellular phones (power amplifier/antenna/voltage controlled oscillators/surface acoustic wave/Bluetooth, etc.), digital TV tuners and wireless LAN devices.

"Murata's ability to push the miniaturisation envelope with the 01005 inductors permits original equipment manufacturers to make smaller, lower-profile products," said Deryl Kimbro, product manager for Murata Electronics North America. "Because of our commitment to providing customers with the most advanced products, this size reduction does not come at the expense of high performance."

In addition to the smaller, more compact size, the ROHS compliant LQP02TN series offers high Q characteristics and stable inductance despite the dramatic footprint reduction. The inductance is between 0.4nH to 10nH, with a tolerance of ±0.3nH/±five per cent. Lead time is approximately six to eight weeks.
