Low-profile power inductors

22 November 2023 Passive Components

TDK Corporation has announced the introduction of its new PLEA85 series of high-efficiency power inductors developed for battery-powered wearables and other devices, improving operating times. The new series currently has the lowest profile in the industry, due to the use of TDK’s newly developed low-loss magnetic material and its thin-film processing techniques.

Measuring just 1,0 x 0,8 x 0,55 mm (L x W x H), the PLEA85 series enables engineers to miniaturise their designs and take full advantage of low-profile ICs such as CSP. The bottom electrode and partly L-shaped form on the side of the components makes it suitable for high-density surface mounting. It also helps suppress misplacement during mounting and improves terminal strength to create a more robust end-product.

Demand for thinner, lighter and smaller electronic components is on the increase as more low-SWaP products are developed. TDK’s high-efficiency small-sized and low-profile inductors aim to be key parts of power circuits.
