Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. introduces the LQW15DN series inductor for communication devices such as smartphones, which is the world’s smallest inductor in 0402 size (1.0 x 0.5mm) at a large inductance of 15µH. Mass production of the product is starting in September 2017.
Inductors for communications devices such as smartphones require miniaturization of the components for multifunctionality and multimodality as well as large inductance for booster circuits installed in RF antenna tuning circuits and bluetooth modules. The product realized a maximum inductance of 15μH in 0402 size (1.0 x 0.5mm) due to our unique materials and design technology, enabling contribution to the miniaturization and high-efficiency of the circuit.
