Power Inductors

TT Electronics, Carrollton, TX, introduced the HA66 Series of SMD power inductors for use in high-power-density applications where size is critical. The low-profile inductors are suited for high-efficiency DC-DC converters using high switching frequencies up to 3 MHz, as well as EMI and low-pass DC filters. The low-loss, ferrite-based inductors feature inductance ratings from 2.5 to 220 pH, DC resistances from 0.018 to 0.820 Ω, and Irms values from 1.22 to 11.2A. They are magnetically shielded, have low DC resistance, and have an operating temperature range of -40 to +125 °C.
