RCD Develops World’s Smallest Multilayer Chip Inductor – Excellent For High Frequency Designs, Wireless

Manchester, New Hampshire (USA) -RCD Components, again demonstrates superior technological leadership by offering the world’s smallest surface mount inductor. RCD Components, a leading manufacturer of Resistors, Capacitors & Coils, and Delay lines has announced the release of their ‘0201’ size surface mount chip Inductor. RCD’s new chip measures only 0.022” long X 0.011” wide, one fourth the size of previously smallest available chip inductors. Designated MHI-0201 Multilayer High- frequency Inductor, it’s an excellent choice for portable communications applications such as cellular phones, RF wireless, wireless remotes, wireless LANs, and wireless PCMCIAs, as well as handheld devices such as pagers, laptops, and palmtops.

This inductor development, with its small size and standard tape and reel packaging, supports the OEM who is regularly challenged by diminishing board space and increased operating frequencies. The MHI0201 comes from RCD’s line of high frequency inductors designed for the wireless/RF market, including the MHI-0402, MHI-0603, and the MHI-0805, which feature the industry’s highest operating frequency levels, some models exceeding 12GHz.

RCD’s MHI-0201 is available in popular inductance range from 0.6nH to 15nH, making this part readily suitable for most wireless applications.
