Above: 1512SP/2712SP Series Air Core Inductors
Coilcraft’s new XGL4030 Series of high-performance, molded power inductors offer up to 40% lower DCR than the previous best-in-class inductors as well as extremely low AC losses, resulting in the best overall efficiency over a wide range of AC ripple current. They are ideal for DC-DC converters with switching frequencies ranging from hundreds of kHz to 5 MHz and above.
The XGL4030 features an expanded inductance range, including 18 values from 0.13 to 12.0 µH, with current ratings up to 26.5 Amps and soft saturation characteristics. It also offers a 30% increase in Irms self-heating current, allowing the XGL4030 to operate much cooler than previous-generation components.
XGL4030 Series inductors are qualified to AEC-Q200 Grade 1 standards (-40° to +125°C ambient) with a maximum part operating 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.
New Mini Air Core Inductors
The company also introduced high Q factors Air Core Inductors (Spring inductors) that have very tight inductance tolerances, designed for narrowband RF amplifier matching and tuning applications. The new 1512SP/2712SP Series of Mini Air Core Inductors (photo above) come with inductance values from 2.5 nH to 150 nH (tolerances as low as 2%). They include acrylic jacket to provide a flat top for pick and place and are available in two sizes: 4.45 × 3.94 × 3.15 mm and 6.86 × 4.45 × 3.15 mm.
