  • Publication number: 20170004918
    Abstract: A coil conductor has a central axis extending in parallel with a mounting surface. The coil conductor disposed inside a component body extends substantially helically by alternately connecting a plurality of circulating conductive layers and a plurality of via hole conductors. The circulating conductive layers each extend so as to form a part of a substantially quadrangular track having a relatively short side and a relatively long side along an interface between the insulating layers. The via hole conductors each penetrate the insulating layer in a thickness direction. The line width of a short side portion of the circulating conductive layer is wider than that of a long side portion of the circulating conductive layer.

  • Publication number: 20160247630
    Abstract: A magnetic substrate has such a shape that ridges extending between principal surfaces are cut away by cutout portions. A multilayer body has corners arranged so as to overlap the cutout portions. A coil includes lead portions which are connected with both ends of a coil portion and which are drawn out to the corners. A coil is combined with the coil to constitute a common mode choke coil and includes lead portions which are connected with both ends of a coil portion and which are drawn out to the corners. Connecting portions connect external electrodes to the lead portions and are provided at the cutout portion.

  • Patent number: 9401242
    Abstract: A composite electronic component includes a multilayer body, coils, an antistatic element and outer electrodes. The multilayer body is configured by laminating insulator layers. The coils are provided on the upper surfaces of the insulator layers. The antistatic element is connected to the coils and includes ground electrodes. The outer electrodes are connected to the coils. The upper surfaces of the insulator layers on which the coils are provided do not intersect with the ground electrodes.
