Introducing our MLI Multilayer Chip Inductors

The MLI series of multilayer chip inductors are an ideal cost-effective solution for small applications where traditional wire-wound inductors cannot fit. Furthermore, the ferrite multilayer chip inductor is suitable for high precision applications where a tight inductance tolerance is required.

The advantage that ferrite chip inductors have over ceramic chip inductors is that they can achieve higher inductance values, handle better saturate currents, and have lower DC resistance. However, it is worth noting that the working frequency range of ferrite inductors is typically lower than that of inductors with ceramic cores. As a result designers often prefer to use ferrite inductors in power lines such as DC-DC converters or power applications.

For sample and prototype quantities, this range can be purchased from our distributor Farnell.
