Application Note:  The Importance of Estimating Power Losses in Consumer Power Supply Magnetic Components

Consumer electronics power supply losses can be mitigated significantly with inductors. However, access to high frequency inductor performance information is scarce. Bourns’ application note identifies accurate AC resistance, the importance of understanding core losses and thermal effects and provides a design example for estimating power losses.
