Pulse Electronics, a YAGEO company, continues the expansion of our composite core power inductor product line, filling the 8080 and 10xx gaps in this family. Available in both commercial grade and automotive grade with the same -55C to 155C operating temperature range, the PA/PM2241 series is adds the 8x8x8mm size while heights of 3, 6 & 10mm in the 10x10mm size are available in the PA/PM2242/43/44 series. These new products offer extremely high energy storage density (1300uJ/cm3) and are ideally suited for any high performance applications in the communications, computing, industrial, and automotive market segments.

“Composite inductors are constructed by inserting a pre-wound coil over pre-press magnetic core and then pressing or molding a magnetic material around this assembly. The composite inductors are similar in appearance to pure molded inductors but typically offer lower DCR and lower overall losses. While some high end molded inductor series claim to electrically match equivalent sized composite core inductors, the termination style does not allow for a pin compatible replacement. This Pulse product line offers a true drop in replacement to other composite core inductor families on the market.”

Composite core inductors provide a fully shielded, high energy density, soft saturation solution for applications up to 120Apk. The construction enables the highest energy density of any available SMT inductors and also minimizes acoustic noise.  To inquire about lead times, competitive pricing, samples, and more, just contact us or use our quote form accessed using the button below.
