Coilcraft announces the introduction of two new products to its line of high current, molded power inductors, both offering unique termination options.
The XTL7030 Series features side metal terminations for automated optical inspection of the component during the solder reflow process. It offers inductance values from 10 to 47 µH – significantly higher than products currently available from other manufacturers in the same size part. It also provides excellent current handling (up to 5.3 A) and low AC + DC power losses.
The XAR7030 Series marks the first time raised inductors are available as standard, off-the-shelf products. They measure 8.5 mm square, with terminals that elevate the inductor body 1.5 mm from the printed circuit board surface. The unique off-the-board construction allows standard power management IC packages to be mounted beneath the inductor in a 3D packaging arrangement, reducing overall board space. The XAR7030 is available with inductance values ranging from 0.16 to 10 µH. It also offers low DCR – as low as 1.26 mΩ.
