St. Louis, Miss.Laird Technologies Inc. has developed a line of EIA 0201 Ferrite Chip Beads that extends the existing 0402 to 3312 surface-mounted monolithic EMI suppression product families.
The LI0201 chip beads' smaller, miniature foot-print make them suitable for advanced handheld electronic devices such as cellular phones, Bluetooth handsets, PDAs, GPS, MP3 players, digital camcorders, and digital cameras.
According to Laird, the LI0201 series offers superior impedance versus frequency characteristics with low DCR for EMI noise suppression on high-frequency or broadband digital signal lines. The rugged monolithic assembly and 0.6 mm x 0.3 mm x 0.3 mm foot-print offers approximately 40% mounting space savings over the existing 0402 products.
The chip beads provide an EMI noise filtering effect and space efficiency and can be placed close to the EMI source or receptor of the external interface or the internal signal interconnection, the company added.
