Murata Electronics North America introduced the BLM15AX_SN series, an advanced ferrite bead that lowers DC resistance by up to 60 percent compared to previous models. As part of Murata's expanding electromagnetic interference filter (EMIFIL™) line, the chip ferrite bead was developed with new ceramic materials and processing technologies that improve performance and reduce size in order to provide power and space savings in portable electronics.

"Power reduction is now just as critical as space reduction when it comes to designing components for handheld devices," said Deryl Kimbro, Group Product Manager for Murata Electronics North America. "Murata's ability to provide our customers with advanced components that meet these important criteria is fully demonstrated in the new chip ferrite bead series."
