  • Patent number: 11011300
    Abstract: An electronic component is mounted on a circuit board such that a mounting surface of an element body to which a first outer electrode and a second outer electrode are exposed is directed toward the circuit board. A coil is formed of a spiral coil in which a plurality of coil conductor layers arranged in a direction perpendicular to a first side surface and a second side surface orthogonal to the mounting surface are connected in series. Then, an intermediate point between a lowest point closest to the mounting surface and an uppermost point farthest from the mounting surface in an inner circumference of the coil is offset from the center of the element body in a direction perpendicular to the mounting surface toward the opposite side to the mounting surface.
