TDK Corporation announced the development of the MMZ0402EUC series of chip beads, with the lowest DC resistance for a chip bead its size. The two new types with their respective impedance values of 150 Ω and 180 Ω at 100 MHz, feature DC resistance values of only 0.62 Ω and 0.69 Ω. This results in a significant reduction in power losses, while at the same time providing excellent noise suppression.
The new chip beads are ideally suited for noise suppression in the power and signal circuits of smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices. Mass production was launched in August 2017.
