Power Inductor For LED-Flash Converters Ups DC Bias Rating

The NRV3012, a wire-wound power inductor for LED flash DC/DC-converter applications in camera-equipped cell phones and other portable electronic devices, claims the industry's best DC-bias characteristics of any power inductor in its size class. The device, which measures 3 mm x 3 mm by 1.2 mm (maximum height), sports a rated current of 1.8 A (based on DC saturation), which represents a 60% improvement over the company's previous 1.1-A maximum rated current. Moreover, the NRV3012 reduces device surface area by 40% compared to previous 4-mm2 wire-wound power inductors with equivalent DC bias performance. Thanks to its high performance and smaller size, the NRV3012 offers greater design flexibility by allowing larger power inductors to be replaced by significantly smaller components. Sample pricing is $0.20 each; delivery is from stock to two weeks after receipt of order. TAIYO YUDEN INC., Schaumburg, IL. (847) 925-0888.
