TAIYO YUDEN (U.S.A.) INC. has announced the expansion of its line-up for its chip bead inductor FB series M type, designed for increased noise reduction for power supply use, with the EIA 0603 size FBMJ1608 (1.6 x 0.8 x 0.8mm), the EIA 0806 size FBMH2016 (2.0 x 1.6 x 1.6mm), and the EIA 1206 size FBMH3216 (3.2 x 1.6 x 1.6mm). These products are used for noise reduction in the power-supply lines of equipment that demands high reliability, such as in car electronics and industrial DC motors. The FBMJ1608HS220NTW (with an impedance value of 22mW) and the FBMJ1608HM180NTW (with an impedance value of 18mW) have achieved the industry's highest rated current of 7.5A with the EIA 0603 size. In addition, both the FBMH2016HM121NTV and the FBMH3216HM221NTV can also reduce noise in the high frequency band by adopting TAIYO YUDEN's unique molding technology.
Production of these products began at the company's Nakanojo plant, (Nakanojo-machi, Agatsuma-gun, Gunma Prefecture, Japan) and TAIYO YUDEN (PHILIPPINES), CO., LTD. (Lapulapu City, Cebu), at a production rate of 1 million units per month for each size. The sample price is $0.30 per unit.
The inductor is suited for noise reduction in the power-supply lines of various equipment, such as AEC-Q200 automotive electronics, industrial DC motors, note PCs, servers, printers, LCD TVs, and wireless communication base stations.
