Molded Power Inductors Cut AC/DC Losses

Coilcraft’s XGL4020 Series high-performance, molded power inductors are said to specify the industry’s lowest dc losses and extremely low ac losses for a wide range of dc/dc converters, i.e., from hundreds kHz up to 5+ MHz. Additional performance improvements include a wider range of inductance values and improved Irms current ratings.

 

The XGL4020 is available in twelve inductance values from 0.33 µH to 8.2 µH, with current ratings up to 15.2A and soft saturation characteristics. It offers the lowest DC resistance currently available in the market – up to 45% lower than Coilcraft’s next lowest soft-saturation products. The lower DCR and higher Irms also allow the XGL4020 to operate much cooler than other components.

SENSORS EXPO & CONFERENCE

Sensors 2019 Hits Silicon Valley June 25-27!

Join 7,000+ engineers this June in San Jose at the sensor industry’s biggest event! With 65+ Technical Sessions, 100+ Leading Speakers, 10 new and updated tracks, and 300+ Interactive Exhibits, there’s more opportunity than ever to connect with this booming industry and the technologies driving it. See thousands of the newest technologies in action, learn about the latest applications, and develop invaluable partnerships at the only event dedicated to sensors, connectivity, and systems.

 

The inductors are qualified to AEC-Q200 Grade 1 standards (-40° to +125°C ambient) with a maximum part temperature of +165°C and exhibit no thermal aging issues, making them suitable for automotive and other harsh-environment applications. They feature RoHS-compliant, tin-silver-over-copper terminations and are halogen free. Their composite construction also minimizes audible buzzing.
