Metal-core power inductors
29 January 2014, Passive Components

TDK has rolled out the new VLS-HBX series of compact metal power inductors which feature a very low profile of just 1,0 mm, combined with a high current capability. The two new types have footprints of 2,0 x 1,6 mm and 2,5 x 2,0 mm.

Thanks to the use of a magnetic metal core material with a high saturation flux density, the power inductors offer rated currents of up to 6,0 A d.c., depending on type. Their current capability is thus up to 80% higher than that of existing products whose cores are based on ferrite materials.

In addition, TDK was able to achieve DC resistance values that are 40% lower than those of current products through the use of advanced core forming technology and optimised structural design. The VLS-HBX series is designed for use in the power supply circuitry of smartphones, tablet PCs and other mobile devices.
