To provide a more hands-on experience in classrooms and instructional labs, Coilcraft has developed a new Power Magnetics Lab Kit. The kit contains a variety of through-hole power inductors for easy soldering and is available for free to accredited electrical engineering programs. The kit helps provide students with applying textbook theories to real power-conversion circuits, helping to gain a deeper understanding of power magnetics.
The kit is just part of Coilcraft’s efforts to support the next generation of electrical engineers. The company also recently added a Student Resource Center to its website, offering free access to design tools, a library of application notes, and a wealth of other educational resources, including a Basics of Design published in the March 2014 issue of Electronic Design. Students can also follow Coilcraft on social media to submit photos of their design projects and receive special offers and notifications for contests.
