Abstract

Described in the following is a programmable substrate inductor (PSI). The PSI is a low-cost replacement for chip inductors on substrates and boards. Because the inductor is programmable by means of a laser trimmer or equivalent, the inductor can be fine tuned to a precise circuit inductance value. (Image Omitted)
