New Chip inductor for NFC circuits
Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. has started production of the LQM18JN Series
Murata has started production of the LQM18JN Series of chip inductors for near field communication (NFC) in January.
In recent years, an increasing number of electronic devices such as smartphones have included NFC capability. An NFC circuit utilizes a chip inductor for impedance matching, however, current with large amplitude flows in an NFC matching circuit. With a common matching inductor, the effect of magnetic saturation hinders the expected performance. The LQM18JN Series has been designed specifically for NFC matching circuits and is not easily impacted by magnetic saturation. In addition, its closed magnetic circuit configuration suppresses interference with surrounding components even at high mounting density, making it ideal for reducing the size of the NFC circuit.
Features LQM18JN series
- Small size; 1.6L×0.8W×0.55 mmH
- ±5% narrow deviation (ideal for matching)
- Suitable for NFC modules mounted in devices
