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.

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.
