Schaumburg, Ill. Taiyo Yuden (U.S.A.) Inc. has introduced the NR6045T series of 6 x 6 x 4.5-mm wirewound power inductors for DC-DC converter choke coil applications in LCD/plasma TVs and other flat panel displays (FPDs). This inductor meets the flat panel display market's requirements for higher current capacity, lower DC resistance (RDC) and smaller physical size.
Now being produced at the rate of 20 million units per month, the 14 models in the NR6045T series offer an inductance value range of 1.0 to 100 uH and high current ratings of 0.8 to 8.5 A with low DC resistance (0.014 - 0.5 ohms). The NR6045T-100M device, for example, is said to offer the industry's highest rated current of 3.0A at 10 uH in the 6 x 6-mm form factor.
Pricing: Sample price is $0.30 each.
Availability: Now in volume production quantities. Delivery is two weeks ARO.
