AVX – New inductors for consumer and industrial power applications (Lmax)Jun 11 2012 - Passives [More Passives Articles]
A new series of shielded and non-shielded SMD power inductors has been unveiled by AVX, expanding its line of thin-film multi-layer organic (MLO), and broadband wire-wound conical inductors.
The new Lmax series inductors feature a wide inductance range, low DC resistance, and the high current values necessary for industrial applications. The RoHS-compliant inductor series is suited to a broad range of consumer and industrial power applications, including test and measurement and industrial process control. They are also specified for use in DC-DC converters, switching regulated power supplies, mobile phones, and computers, as well as other peripheral and telecommunications equipment, says the company.
“Developed in response to customer requests for inductors with an even broader current range, the Lmax series inductors significantly expand the types of applications into which customers can integrate our technology,” said Gregg Elliott, product manager, AVX. “Our new Lmax series also provides design engineers with greater flexibility when designing both fixed and portable devices.”More news from AVX
