39 nH, 01005, is more inductance in smaller space

May 20, 2013 // By Graham Prophet
Murata says it is offering the largest inductor value available within a standard ultra-miniature 01005 (EIA) package size measuring 0.4 x 0.2 x 0.2 mm

With an inductance value of 39 nH, the LQP02TN39 comprises the highest value in a series of 59 items with 0.2 nH being the lowest value available. Tolerance from the nominal inductance value is within ± 0.1 nH for inductors up to 4.2 nH and within ± 3% for all values above. In addition to the addition of the 39 nH value to the series three other values have been added; 22 nH, 27 nH and 33 nH. The LQP02TN series suits use in high frequency modules in cell phones, wireless LAN and many other high frequency circuits. With their extremely small footprint, these inductors meet the growing trend for further miniaturisation and functional enhancement of smartphones and other compact consumer electronics devices.

Murata intends to continue innovation with these components and says it will will further widen the available range of inductance values, improve Q characteristics and reduce package sizes in the future.
