A range of shielded power inductors is on sale at Mouser Electronics. Coilcraft’s MLC75xx series inductors feature soft saturation characteristics, making them ideal for voltage regulator module (VRM) and voltage regulator down (VRD) designs and other applications with occasional over-current requirements.
With an exceptionally low DC resistance of only 1.2mOhms, these highly efficient inductors also have an excellent current handling of up to 59A. Devices measure just 7.0 x 7.5mm, with a profile of 4.2mm.
Seven inductance values are offered, ranging from 0.10 to 2.17µH. The RoHS-compliant, halogen-free MLC75xx inductors employ tin-silver (96.5/3.5) over copper terminations and can withstand a maximum reflow temperature of 260°C. Coilcraft uses proprietary materials and construction techniques to avoid thermal aging issues associated with competing iron-powder-core inductors.
The inductors meet a variety of VRM/VRD aplications including power supplies and microprocessor power.
