New Mini Molded L-Shaped Termination Power Inductor – ADCC/BDCC Series

Pulse is launching a new series of mini-molded power inductors focusing on a new L-shaped termination style. The series dimensions range from 2.0 x 1.2mm up to 2.5 x 2.0mm, with various thicknesses ranging from 0.8mm to 1.2mm. The BDCC and ADCC series boast a wide inductance range from 110nH to 2.2uH. This series achieves great performance (lower DC resistance, higher saturation current, and lower core losses) by taking advantage of the special coil design and development of an improved magnetic powdered core material.

“The BDCC and ADCC power inductors are suitable for many applications and are highly suitable for point-of-load buck, boost, and buck-boost converters. For the commercial grade BDCC series, the L-shaped termination style lends itself well in personal electronics and wearable devices that have strict size restrictions. This is also true for the ADCC series, which are the AEC-Q200 qualified, automotive equivalent parts suitable for ADAS and Infotainment applications. For example, with the usage of PMICs for small camera modules in surround view systems, the ADCC series can help improve the system efficiency and achieve the small form factor despite multi-phased outputs. Moreso, this product is specially designed for customer’s use-cases that don’t utilize an external termination on the top of the inductor.”

Pulse also considers the impact of a product’s cost in the overall system BOM. Cost-effectiveness for the BDCC and ADCC products are realized by streamlining and integrating manufacturing systems for the wire winding and magnetic molding process. By improving the manufacturability of this series, they can help customers scale their solutions to be more competitive in the market. These miniature molded inductors will be released next year.
