Understanding SMD Power Inductors

July 22, 2011 // By Laird Technologies
Laird Technologies, Inc., a global leader in the design and supply of customized performance-critical components and systems for advanced electronics and wireless products, today announced the publication of its newest application note titled “Understanding SMD Power Inductors”. The application note discusses how surface mount power inductors are used to store energy while also filtering EMI currents with a low-loss inductance for voltage conversion applications. They are also used in DC-to-DC converters, and require minimal printed circuit board (PCB) space; providing a high-performance, multiphase design that significantly reduces the overall system cost.
