Power Inductors

The HM69 Series of low-profile SMT inductors offer current-handling capability up to 70 A and are for use in wireless applications, PDAs, PCMCIA cards, disk drives and general-use applications. The smallest of the family measures 6 mm × 5 mm × 3 mm. Offering a Class F insulation system, they operate at temperatures from -40°C to 125°C and offer dc resistance ratings ranging from 0.17 mΩ to 0.56 mΩ.

Chip Inductors

The NR Series is for use in dc-dc converter choke-coil applications to meet the convergent needs of new-generation cell phones and other high power-consumption portables. The devices provide up to 30% higher rated current than conventional inductors of equal size. The three part numbers in the NR series provide a uniform 4-mm × 4-mm footprint, and are available in 1-mm, 1.2-mm or 1.8-mm device heights to remain within the vertical limits of key ICs in ultra-portable devices.

Gapped Ferrite Toroids

For use in power inductors, these gapped ferrite toroids are available in the high flux, frequency stable material, 3C20. This material has very low losses, outperforming iron powder and all metal alloy powders. The brochure gives elaborate AL versus dc bias curves and loss density curves, also in comparison with MPP material. An example shows how to use these graphs in product calculations.

Power Cube Inductors

The PG0200.XXX power cube inductors are mainly for desktop PCs with T-socket processors. Applications include servers, multiphase voltage regulator modules, dc-dc converters and other point-of-load applications. With a high power density of 426 micro joules per cubic centimeter in a 16-mm × 3.2-mm × 9.2-mm maximum profile, they use a shielded E-core package.

SMT Power Inductors

PM7232S, PM12639S and PM12645S high-current power inductors include eight new families with footprints from 7 mm to 13 mm. Designed with a flat wire to create more space for high-current capabilities, they offer an inductance range of 0.10 µH to 10 µH. They handle current as high as 80 A and have dc resistance as low as 0.54 mΩ.

Harmonic Cancellation Transformers

The ZST Series zero sequence harmonic filter transformer cancels triplen harmonics from line-to-neutral connected single-phase loads. It reduces the flow of triplen harmonics on the neutral by creating a phase shift that cancels the triplen harmonics produced in each phase against those produced in each of the other phases.
