Taiyo Yuden announces two new products in its series of high-frequency multilayer chip inductors, providing high inductance and high-Q factor performance characteristics. The HK series (high inductance) is a 100 nH-rated chip inductor in EIA 0201 case size. The HKQ series (high-Q) represents a new line of 0201 high-Q chip inductors (1-10 nH) with 30% higher Q values than previous series devices, relative to case size. All HK and HKQ series devices improve end-device manufacturability by providing non-polarized electrodes that allow mounting in any orientation on the circuit board. This high-inductance (HK) chip inductor series currently provides an inductance range of 1 nH (250 mA) to 100 nH (40 mA).
