Tue, 06/30/2009 - 5:09am
With features such as a base plate with injection-molded termination clips, SMT power inductors from Epcos increase mechanical stability and improve temperature distribution during the solder process in demanding automotive applications. With dimensions ranging between 7.3 mm x 7.3 mm x 4.5 mm and 12.5 mm x 12.5 mm x 8.5 mm, the inductors offer inductances from 0.82 H to 1000 H, can handle currents up to 15 A, and have a resistance of 5.5 mOhm at low inductances. The inductors are designed for operating temperatures up to 150 °C.
