High-inductance shielded power inductors minimise buzzing
The new series of high-temperature power inductors, the XAL7050 Series, is now available from Coilcraft, with inductance values from 22 to 47µH and current ratings as high as 5.5A, with low DCR for greater efficiency. For lower inductance values, Coilcraft offers a lower-profile companion, the XAL7030, with an identical footprint and inductance range of 0.16 to 10µH.
Power inductors have lowest DC losses
At this year’s PCIM, Coilcraft will be featuring its new XGL4020 series of moulded power inductors. According to the company, they have the industry’s lowest DC losses and extremely low AC losses for a wide range of DC/DC converters (from hundreds of kHz up to +5MHz).
Low-profile power inductors for embedded computing systems
At embedded world 2019, Coilcraft’s stand (Hall 3 / 3-550) will feature a broad range of products for embedded applications, including low-profile power inductors with footprints as small as 1.14x0.635mm, maximum heights as low as 0.50mm and current ratings up to 20A.
Wirewound ferrite beads offer a high magnitude of attenuation
A broad range of wirewound ferrite beads are offered by Coilcraft, in standard package sizes from 0201 (0603) to 1812 (4532). Superior attenuation and frequency performance enable smaller solution sizes compared to traditional thick-film chip ferrite beads.
Low loss power inductors designed for high frequency applications
Coilcraft has introduced its new XEL50xx Family of high performance, molded power inductors that offer low DC resistance and ultra-low AC losses, improving power converter efficiency at high frequencies (2-5MHz) and high ripple current.
Automotive-grade high-voltage coupled inductors at APEC 2018
At the Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC) being held 4-8th March in San Antonio, Texas, Coilcraft will debut its LPD8035V series of miniature, high-voltage 1:1 coupled inductors. The LPD8035V provides 1,500Vrms, one-minute isolation (hipot) between windings from a package that measures 7.92x6.4x3.5mm, providing users with significant size and cost reductions over conventional bobbin-wound alternatives.
High current molded power inductors with specialised terminations
Coilcraft has introduced two new products to its line of high current, molded power inductors, and both of which offer exclusive termination options. The XTL7030 Series features side metal terminations for automated optical inspection (AOI) of the component during the solder reflow process.
Ceramic chip inductors offer low loss in high frequency circuits
Manufacturer of chip inductors, power magnetics, EMI filters, wideband transformers, Coilcraft has announced its new 0402DC series ceramic wirewound chip inductors which offer what the company claims to be the industry's highest Q factors in an 0402 (1005) size - up to 162 at 2.4GHz - for low loss in high frequency circuits.
Two new power inductors include specialised terminations
The introduction of two new products to Colicraft’s line of high current moulded power inductors have been announced, and both offer exclusive termination options. The XTL7030 Series features side metal terminations for automated optical inspection (AOI) of the component during the solder reflow process.
Ceramic chip inductors provide high Q factor
Global supplier of magnetic components, Coilcraft, has released a new series ceramic wirewound chip inductors. The 0805HP series offers what the company claims to be the industry’s highest Q factors in an 0805 size at frequencies up to 3GHz. It is available with 23 inductance values ranging from 2.6-820nH, with two percent tolerance available for most values. The 0805HP series features a wirewound construction for self resona...
The highest inductance in the industry's smallest package
Coilcraft has introduced its new 0201HL Series of chip inductors available in seven inductance values ranging from 22 to 51 nH, the highest currently offered in a wirewound 0201 package. This inductance range is fully optimised for impedance matching in 700 MHz LTE and 5G applications. The 0201HL Series also provides the highest Q factors currently available in that package size — up to 62 at 2.4 GHz.
Power inductor selection tool provides more performance data
A new suite of power inductor selection tools has been launched by Coilcraft that allows users to easily select the appropriate path for their particular search while also providing more application-specific performance data than previously available on any industry site. Len Crane, Coilcraft's Director of Technical Marketing, will be previewing the tool at the Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC 2017) in Tampa, Florida.
Low-loss power inductors for high frequency applications
A range of high-current, low-loss power inductors was introduced by Coilcraft at electronica 2016. The XEL60xx family employs a design which offers low DCR (as low as 1.35mΩ) and low AC losses at high switching frequencies (2-5+MHz). It is currently available in two models, the XEL6030 and XEL6060, both featuring lower inductance values which have been optimised for high frequency applications.
