Metal power inductor over 60% smaller than conventional products

01-11-2018 | Taiyo Yuden | Passives

Taiyo Yuden has expanded its line-up of the metal multilayer chip power inductor MCOIL MC series, which employs a metallic magnetic material, as well as the commercialisation of what is claimed to be the world’s smallest metal power inductor MCEE1005 (1mm x 0.5mm x 0.55mm, maximum height).

This power inductor is employed as a power choke coil in power supply circuits for smartphones, wearable devices, and IoT devices. By developing their material and multilayer techniques, the company has successfully commercialised this 1005-size metal power inductor, creating a volume that is over 60% smaller than their conventional product, MCFK1608 (1.6mm x 0.8mm x 0.6mm) and contributes to developing smaller and thinner mobile devices such as wearable devices.
