Features Ultra-compact 01005 size (0.4 x 0.2 x 0.3 mm) World’s highest Q characteristics achieved in the 01005 size (Claimed by Murata) Ultra-tight tolerance (inductance tolerance: ±0.05 nH [0.4 to 1.5 nH]) that is the world’s lowest in the 01005 size Product line consisting of 57 items (with inductance values ranging from 0.4 nH to 22 nH) Over the years with the increase in multiband capability, multi-functionality and more sophisticated functions, the configuration of the RF circuits in smartphones and other compact mobile devices is becoming more complex, and the number of components being incorporated is increasing. At the same time, the volume accounted for by the batteries inside these mobile devices has become larger and larger, necessitating the RF circuits to be configured in more limited spaces. This is one reason for the rising demand for ultra-compact RF inductors with high Q characteristics capable of reducing circuit loss to the absolute minimum.To meet these needs Murata Manufacturing has introduced a new line of film-type high-frequency chip inductors in the ultra-compact 01005 size (0.4 x 0.2 mm). The LQP02HQ series of inductors whose Q characteristics are further improved over those of the company’s LQP02TQ series. Using the company’s latest proprietary microprocessing technology, these products feature the optimum coil patterns and L-shaped electrode construction. By enlarging the dimension in the height direction rather than in the horizontal direction, Murata has achieved the world’s highest Q characteristics in the 01005 size. These characteristics are on a par with those of its LQP03TN_02 series in the 0201 size. The inductors also have an extremely low inductance variation of ±0.05 nH (0.4 to 1.5 nH).The series lineup consists of 57 inductors with values that range from 0.4 nH to 22 nH. Applications High-frequency modules (PA/ANT/SAW/GPS, etc.) for cell phones Smartphones, cell phones (WCDMA/GSM/LTE, etc.) Wi-Fi/Bluetooth® and other wireless module types All types of high-frequency circuits
LSU offensive coordinator Cam Cameron has been treated for prostate cancer.BATON ROUGE – LSU offensive coordinator Cam Cameron announced Friday night that he was diagnosed with prostate cancer several weeks ago, but has already gone through weeks of treatment and has received a clean bill of health.LSU head coach Les Miles, his other assistant coaches and most of the players and staff knew of Cameron’s condition and they were planning on keeping his condition among just themselves and Cameron’s family, but word of Cameron’s condition leaked out to news media on Friday. At that point, Miles decided to have LSU’s sports information department call a press conference for 6 p.m.Cameron’s complete statement to reporters at the LSU football facility follows:“Well, who called this press conference? Hey, appreciate the concern. I don’t necessarily know what’s out there (in news stories). But I know we’d like to address one thing. I’m fine. My health is good. I’ve been given a clean bill of health. I’ve been involved throughout the entire training camp, looking forward to this season and all the goals that you see in this room, obviously, I’m involved that. And nothing’s changed from that regard. The one thing I would want to say is just these last few weeks, just the support from this program and our players and Coach Miles and our staff, I’ve never experienced anything quite like it.“It’s been awesome for me and my family. And I think that’s been a big part of just how this thing has progressed in such a positive way. Les communicating with our staff and Joe Alleva (LSU athletic director) and then our staff just doing a tremendous job, our entire offensive coaching staff and defensive coaching staff for that matter. But, I’m good. I’m fine. I just want you to know that, and I do appreciate the concern. And on behalf of my family, just want to again thank everybody for their support, and we’re looking forward to this season and we’ll be moving on from here.”LSU opens the season a week from Saturday against McNeese State in Tiger Stadium.
