Operating Voltage Ratings for Inductors

Nov. 18, 2021

Voltage ratings are often specified for many electronic components, including capacitors, resistors and integrated circuits, but traditionally this has been rare for inductors. This paper discusses how recent trends, particularly the introduction of higher-voltage-rated semiconductor devices, have created a new emphasis on operating voltage as part of the inductor selection process.
