What are chip inductors?

What is a chip inductor? A chip inductor is usually available in a high frequency; multi-layer form and feature a low-loss ceramic, monolithic body with metal electrodes of high conductivity enclosed within. Overall, it aids in achieving optimal performance in catching high frequency signals.

Are inductors and transformers the same?

Inductors are used in AC electronic equipment to block AC while allowing DC to pass. Transformers consist of two coils of insulated wires that are wound around an iron core. This makes the electric power (voltage x amperage) same in both the coils.

Can we integrate an inductor in a chip?

Integrated Spiral inductors are the most common and straightforward solution. Also, Bondwires inductors can be considered as “integrated” and are going to be discussed here. Although, inductors can be implanted in the chip, they have two limiting drawbacks: low Quality factor.

Can I use a transformer as an inductor?

The dot convention of the transformer is given in the image; terminal connections must be done so that the inductance of the resulting inductor must be maximum (I think that happens when the fluxes generated by the primary and secondary windings happen to be in the same direction inside the transformer core).
