Shielded Power Inductors Provide Improved Current Handling, Low DCR

Apr11_Coilcraft’s new MLC75xx series of shielded, high-current power inductors offer Isat ratings up to 59.2 amps and DC resistance down to 1.2 mOhms for greater efficiency. Their soft saturation characteristics make them suited for VRM/VRD designs and other applications with occasional overcurrent requirements.

The compact, surface mount MLC75xx series measures just 7.0 by 7.5 mm, with a maximum height of 4.2 mm.  Coilcraft offers the series in seven inductance values ranging from 0.10 to 2.17 µH. MLC75xx series inductors feature RoHS compliant tin-silver (96.5/3.5) over copper terminations and offer a maximum reflow temperature of 260°C. They are also constructed of proprietary materials that are not subject to thermal aging issues associated with other iron powder core inductors.

As with all Coilcraft parts, free evaluation samples are available online at
