New low-loss power inductors for high frequency applications

09-11-2016 | Coilcraft Europe | Passives

The XEL60xx family, from Coilcraft, employs a new design which offers extremely low DCR (as low as 1.35 mOhms) and ultra-low AC losses at high switching frequencies (2 to 5+ MHz). It is currently available in two models, the XEL6030 and XEL6060, both featuring lower inductance values which have been fully optimized for high frequency applications. Both series provide superior current handling (up to 41A) with soft saturation characteristics to withstand high current spikes.



The inductors measure just 6.56mm x 6.36mm with maximum heights as low as 3.1mm, making them ideal for compact DC-DC converters. They feature RoHS compliant tin-silver over copper terminations and are halogen free. They are also qualified to AEC-Q200 Grade 1 standards (-40C to +125C ambient), making them suitable for automotive and other harsh-environment applications.
