Power magnetics Lab Kit enters education

July 03, 2015 // By Julien Happich
Coilcraft has developed a Power Magnetics Lab Kit to help educators provide hands-on experience in their classrooms and instructional labs.

The kit contains a broad selection of through-hole power inductors for easy soldering, and is offered free-of-charge to accredited Electrical Engineering programs.

“We've been providing free product samples to students and educators for years, both individually and for full classroom support”, explains Len Crane, Director of Technical Marketing at Coilcraft, “but this is the first time we developed a parts kit specifically with students in mind”.

According to the company, on top of the very positive feedback it received, students are having fun applying textbook theories to real power conversion circuits, they also gain a deeper understanding of power magnetics while doing so.

The company has also added a Student Resource Center to its website, which offers free access to powerful design tools, a deep library of application notes and other resources. Students can also follow Coilcraft on Facebook to submit photos of their design projects and receive special offers and contest notifications.
