Raleigh, N.C. Stackpole Electronics, Inc. has expanded the inductance ranges of its shielded and unshielded power surface-mount (SMD) inductors. Several package size options were also added. Many of these power inductors target power supplies and circuits with size and weight constraints.
The SMD power inductor line includes five different series of unshielded power inductors and eight different series of shielded power inductors. Most of the key expansions centered on the PCD and PSDB series. The PCD series added three new package sizes and expanded the inductance value range up to 820 uH. The PSDB series added three values as well as improved the available inductance range to 1000 uH (1 mH). However, not all of the available size and inductance value combinations are listed on all the datasheets.
