Q.What happens when a current exceeding the rated current is applied to chip beads?
EMC Components > EMC Components > Chip Beads
A. Applying a current exceeding the rated current leads to a disconnection or short circuit (damaged chip) when the current limit value is reached. The breakdown current value is determined by the applied current and number of times it is applied, and the limit value varies according to factors such as the characteristic variations of the product and the environment (particularly the temperature) that the product is used in.
