  • Patent number: 11557427
    Abstract: A coil component in which a change in thicknesses of the winding part is prevented is provided. According to the coil component, since each of a pair of neighboring resin walls and a seed part between the pair of resin walls are separated by a predetermined distance, a plating part grown on the seed part is easy to grow uniformly between the pair of neighboring resin walls. For this reason, the winding part whose surface is gentle and in which a change in thickness is prevented is obtained by plating growth.
