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.
Both series provide current handling (up to 41A) with soft saturation characteristics to withstand high current spikes.
XEL60xx Family inductors measure 6.56x6.36mm with maximum heights as low as 3.1mm, making them suitable for compact DC/DC converters. They feature RoHS compliant tin-silver over copper terminations and are halogen free. They are also qualified to AEC-Q200 Grade 1 standards (-40 to 125°C ambient), making them useful for automotive and other harsh environment applications.
