Taiyo Yuden’s NRS6010 (6.0 mm x 6.0 mm, with a maximum height of 1.0 mm) and NRS5012 (5.0 mm x 5.0 mm, with a maximum height of 1.2 mm) wire-wound power inductors feature thin profiles and desirable DC characteristics. The NRS6010’s rated current 1.0 A (DC bias allowed current at an inductance of 10 µH), and the NRS5012’s rated current of 3.1 A (DC bias allowed current at an inductance of 2.2µH) can manage high currents. Designed for use as choke coils in DC-DC converters for slim, compact digital devices, the NRS6010 is appropriate for LED backlighting for notebook and netbook PCs. The smaller NRS5012 is suitable for devices such as hard disk drives smaller than 2.5” and for compact digital still cameras.
