Bourns, Inc. introduced two new low-profile, small footprint SMD power inductors designed for dc-dc converters in mobile electronics applications. The new power inductor models, designated SRP2010 and SRP2512, feature inductance values from 0.22- to 2.2-µH with Irms up to 4.5 A and Isat (saturation current) up to 6.5 A. The dimensions of Bourns’ Model SRP2010 is 2.0 x 1.6 x 1.0 millimeters (mm) and Model SRP2512 measures 2.5 x 2.0 x 1.2 mm making them suited for a broad range of ultra-thin electronic applications including smartphones, tablets and data storage devices.
"Designers of today's multifunction mobile electronics applications continually demand smaller and thinner dc-dc converter solutions that must also meet their high current requirements. Bourns' new low-profile power inductor devices have been designed to satisfy these needs," said Guido Zehnder, product manager at Bourns, Inc. "As excellent additions to Bourns' extensive line of power inductors, the latest devices offer the advantages of wirewound construction, and are designed with an iron powder core that features high saturation current and shielded construction for low magnetic radiation" said Zehnder.
As a pricing reference, the Bourns model SRP2010 is priced at $ 0.22 each in 5,000 piece quantities. Both Bourns low-profile SMD high current shielded power inductors are available now and are RoHS compliant.
