Murata said it has commenced mass production of its smart phone specific inductor LQP03HQ film-type ultra-HiQ high-frequency chip inductors of the 0201 Size (0.6×0.3mm). The 0201 size surfacemount inductors are used widely in matching circuits of smart phones.
This unit has 60% higher Q value compared to Murata's previous inductor. The new LQP03HQ4N3 series (inductance value: 4.3nH) has a high Q value of 63 at a frequency of 2.0GHz. This is approximately 60% better than the Q value of 39 for previous Murata products in the LQP03TN4N3 series. Product lineup available in narrow steps including 0.1nH increments (inductance value: 1.3 to 4.3nH; 0.1nHstep, 4.3 to 22nH; E24step) and also product lineup available in narrow steps including 0.1nH increments (inductance value: 1.3 to 4.3nH; 0.1nHstep, 4.3 to 22nH; E24step).
The new inductors are made using ultrafine processing technology and employ an L-shaped electrode configuration to achieve a high Q characteristics.
