Shielded Inductors from BI Technologies Ideal for Automotive, Telecomm Industries

High current inductors rated up to 180°C, target applications in space confined areas.

Fullerton, Calif (March 6, 2006) Providing design engineers with a means to improve power in a small footprint, TT electronics BI Technologies Magnetic Components Division has expanded their range of high power inductors. The HM70 Series high current, surface mount, shielded inductors, which are rated up to 180°C, are suitable for tight board layouts in power supplies, DC/DC converters and modules.

According to David Smolik, Director of Product Development for the TT electronics BI Technologies Magnetic Components Division, the devices target inductor applications that require higher wattage levels in space confined areas. "The HM70 Series inductors utilize a proprietary core material to enhance the power capability and minimize core losses at higher operating frequencies," Smolik said. "Additionally, with the extended operating temperature range, the inductors work well in automotive power and telecomm applications."

The maximum operating frequency for the inductors is 1Mhz, with operating temperature range from -40°C to +180°C. The inductors are available in 400- and 500-unit, 13 diameter embossed tape and reel packages.

Typical pricing for the HM70 Series is 0.67 each in quantities of 10,000, with delivery from stock to 10 weeks.
