Coilcraft announced new low-loss power inductors offered with lower inductance values and fully optimized for high frequency applications. Measuring just 4.0 mm square with maximum height of 1.2 mm, the XEL40xx series inductors are ideal for IoT and portable device applications. The XEL4014 and XEL4020 are also suitable for automotive and other harsh-environment applications by conforming to AEC-Q200 Grade 1 standards (-40° to +125°C ambient).
The XEL40xx series inductors offer the highest efficiency across a range of frequencies (2 to 5+ MHz) with an extremely low DCR (as low as 2.5 mOhms) and ultra-low AC losses. Current ratings are as high as 28.5 amperes. In addition, the devices feature soft saturation characteristics to withstand high current spikes.
The inductors feature RoHS compliant tin-silver over copper terminations and are halogen free. Free evaluation samples of the XEL40xx Series are available online.
