Differences between Chip Inductors and Chip Capacitors and Types of Current

The difference between chip inductor and chip capacitor is easy to understand, but most people are difficult to distinguish, because there are many similarities between chip inductor and chip capacitor. Here is how to introduce the difference between chip inductor and chip capacitor, and the current type of chip inductor.
Difference between chip inductance and chip capacitance
1. Packaging difference
Generally speaking, if it is installed on a disk, we can see the label above. The units of capacitance are uf, pf and nf. On the contrary, the units of inductance are nh, uh and mh.
2. Appearance difference
If it is in bulk, we can experience the difference in appearance. The color of the chip inductor is light, not very black, and there is no light yellow. The color of the chip capacitor is generally dark, and there are two kinds of black and light yellow. If it is not confirmed, the following methods can be used to obtain higher accuracy.
3. Multimeter test
The simplest way is to use a multimeter to test, and use the multimeter to open the file to test both ends. If the buzzer rings, it's an inductor, but if you don't want to, it's a capacitor.
Various currents of chip inductor
SMD inductor is a kind of inductor that can distinguish more kinds of inductors in inductive components. It is also widely used in daily life, such as sharing bicycles, cars, and some household appliances such as TV, refrigerators, air conditioners.
The use of inductor depends on many parameters, such as inductance, current, scale, etc., but do you know which type of inductor has relatively small current? What inductor has a large current?
Those who know about inductors know that chip inductors have the characteristics of small size, high quality and large energy storage, and can be used for highly automated mounting.
There are many relatively small currents in chip inductors, such as some ferrite chip inductors, including small volume GCN and GCD chip inductors. The current of these inductors is relatively small. Because the current is small, these chip inductors are basically used in the categories where the current is not very large, such as DC to DC with relatively small power, or relatively small power supplies.
Some chip inductance high current inductors are used above the voltage drop type, such as the GCDB inductor, which has a relatively large current. These inductors are mostly used in smart home, LED street lamps, automobiles and other fields. There are many kinds of high current chip inductors, such as GCDH, integrated inductor, etc. These inductors are relatively large due to the current.
