Iselin, N.J. EPCOS has expanded the inductance and current range of its HPI series of high-power inductors. The new series now covers an inductance range of 0.5 to 3.92 microHenries and can handle currents up to 30 A.
Depending on the inductance, the insertion height of the HPI high-power inductors is 4.95 mm or 5.95 mm in a 11 x 13.1-mm footprint. The series also offers a resistance ranges from 1.1 to 6.0 milliohms.
The combination of high-current carrying capacity and compact size make the HPI chokes suitable as output inductors for dc/dc converters, point-of-load converters and voltage regulator modules. These new components are RoHS compliant.
The HPI series high-power inductors are priced at $0.75 each in quantities of 10,000. Delivery is six to eight weeks.
