Laminate inductors are non-wound inductors. Commonly used sizes are 0402, 0805, 0603, 1206, 1210, 1812, etc. The multilayer inductor has good magnetic shielding, high sintering density, and good mechanical strength.
Compared with wire-wound inductors, the size is smaller, which is conducive to the miniaturization of the circuit, the closed magnetic circuit will not interfere with the surrounding components, and will not be interfered by the surrounding components, which is conducive to the high-density installation of components. Laminated integrated structure, high reliability, good heat resistance, good solderability, regular shape, suitable for automated surface mounting production. The disadvantages are low pass rate, high cost, small inductance, and low Q value.
At present, multilayer inductors are widely used in notebook computer digital TVs, digital video recorders, lists and hard drives, personal computers and other general consumer computers to eliminate noise on the input and output lines of the main frequency. In the actual application of inductors, unexpected phenomena sometimes occur. After sorting and summarizing, the following four points of attention are given in particular:
1. The temperature is too high
The inductor generates heat during operation, which causes the normal phenomenon when the temperature rises. If the temperature is too high, the temperature of the iron core and coil will easily change inductance. Therefore, it is necessary to pay attention to the working environment temperature of the inductor and select an inductance with appropriate specifications. Device.
2. Magnetic field interference
The inductor generates an electromagnetic field around it because of the current flowing in it. The placement of other components should be as far away as possible from the inductor or at right angles to the inductor to reduce interference. If the requirement is higher, you can switch to an inductor with a shield.
3. Contact resistance
In the middle of the magnetic coil of each layer of the inductor, the capacity will be spread, which can lead to dual-loop power supply for high-frequency data signals, reducing the actual filtering effect of the inductor, so pay attention when using the inductor to carry out high-frequency filtering.
4. Inductance measurement
When measuring the inductance value and Q value with the instrument, the test lead should be as close as possible to the inductor to ensure the accuracy of the data.
