RIVERSIDE, Calif., October 5, 2016 – Bourns, Inc., a leading manufacturer and supplier of electronic components, today introduced three new series of AEC-Q200 qualified high current shielded power inductor products.
The Bourns® Models PQ2614BLA, PQ2614BHA andPQ2617BHA are designed with a flat wire winding offering exceptionally low DC and AC resistance and high saturation current of over 100 A. The flat wirewound design also provides a compact, highly efficient inductance solution. These features make the new inductor products particularly well-suited for automotive power conversion applications as well as DC/DC converters, switch-mode power supplies and filtering applications in consumer, industrial, medical and communications electronics.
Boosting the overall efficiency of DC/DC converters, these inductors feature low power dissipation combined with the low core loss nature of their ferrite core construction. In addition, these devices are mounted on a plastic base designed with an extra solder pad for increased mechanical stability. The series are offered with extended operating temperature ranges from -40 to +155 °C and inductance values of 1 – 33 µH.
The Bourns® Model PQ2614BLA, PQ2614BHA andPQ2617BHA series are available now and are RoHS compliant* and halogen free**. As a pricing reference, the Bourns® Model PQ2614BLA is priced at $1.80 each in 5k piece quantities.
