An inductor is a passive electronic component which stores electrical energy in the form of magnetic energy. It consists of a conductor wound in the form of a coil. The flow of electricity from left to right generates a magnetic field in the clockwise direction. In contrast a multilayer inductor contains patterns of conductive coils arranged in layers. The patterns are arranged in various layers of the multi layered body and are electrically connected. Small size package, low height, higher saturation current and low DC resistance characterize a multi layered inductor making it an ideal choice for integrations where space is critical along with good performance.
