Abstract: A noise suppression sheet comprises a non-magnetic metal layer, a plurality of metal magnetic layers, and a plurality of insulating layers, and the metal magnetic layer and the insulating layer are alternately laminated on the non-magnetic metal layer. The noise suppression sheet can absorb and suppress noise generated from a circuit or the like in an electronic component by being mounted on the electronic component or the like. In the noise suppression sheet, noise is absorbed by each of the metal magnetic layers. Noise that is transmitted without being absorbed by the metal magnetic layer can be reflected by the non-magnetic metal layer and can be absorbed again by the metal magnetic layer, and hence the noise suppression sheet can suppress noise effectively.
