Ceramic Chip Inductor Offers A 0.33-mm Maximum Profile

The LLV0603FB nonpolarity, multilayer ceramic chip inductor features an EIA-standard 0201 footprint (0.6 by 0.3 mm). It also offers a low profile of only 0.33 mm maximum. Manufactured with a proprietary ceramic material and process, these lead-free chip inductors are ideal for use in RF modules and embedded subassemblies where space is limited and printed stripline inductors are impractical.

The devices are designed for use in high-frequency impedance-matching circuitry and LC filter networks, as well as RF chokes. The LLV0603FB is available in ±0.3 nH and ±5% inductance tolerances over an industrial temperature range of -55°C to 125°C. High self-resonant frequencies ranging from 5000 to 20,000 MHz are controlled within ±20%. Inductance values are specified at 800 MHz as well as 100 MHz. A nonpolarity architecture minimizes the potential for magnetic coupling effects between adjacent unshielded ceramic inductors in space-constrained applications.

The LLV0603FB is available in 1.0- to 22.0-nH inductance values. It's packaged on tape-and-reel in 15,000-piece quantities. For pricing and availability information, contact the company.
