SMD High Current Inductor For High-efficiency DC/DC converters


Würth Elektronik has unveiled a flat wire power inductor with very high current loading capacity and efficiency in a 2815 package. The new WE-HCF is loadable up to 36 A and attains saturation currents up to 125 A. The component specified up to 125°C is suitable as a highly efficient DC/DC converter for individual and multiphase converters or for filtering audio applications. WE-HCF is also especially suitable for high current step-up converters.

With its large wire cross-section, the inductor is claimed to offer a 13 percent lower resistance than comparable products on the market and attains an up to 82 percent higher saturation current.

“WE-HCF in the 2815 package fills the gap between the previously available 2013 and 2818 packages and represents a further improvement of the SMT-mountable inductors – with up to 50 percent higher nominal currents than the 2013 series”, says the firm.

The flat wire coil has a resistance of just 1.31 mΩ and with its manganese-zinc-ferrite core, the magnetically shielded power choke shows very low core losses.


WE-HCF is available in any quantities from stock. Free samples are available.
