Gowanda Introduces New Surface Mount Inductors for Power Applications

March 09, 2010 by Jeff Shepard

Gowanda Electronics introduced a new SMP1210S surface mount inductor series. The SMP1210S series combines high current, shielding and small size with inductance values from 1.0 to 100µH and current ratings from 205 to 1384mA dc.

Gowanda states that it is the first inductor manufacture to introduce a series with this performance and size. The current rating, coupling and package size offered by the SMP1210S is said to be unique in the industry and to address the challenge faced by design engineers to increase performance and reduce footprints.

The SMP1210S is designed for use in power applications including filters for dc-dc converters, switching regulated power supplies, and other power supply applications where high current handling capability, shielding and footprint size are important.

Specific applications for the SMP1210S include microprocessor and distributed power applications especially in test & measurement equipment, automotive electronics, medical diagnostic equipment, and industrial process control equipment. Other applications include use in security systems, instrumentation, bar code and laboratory analysis equipment.

Technical specifications for products in Gowanda’s SMP1210S inductor series include: inductance from 1.0 to 100µH (at 1 kHz), current rating from 205 to 1384 mA dc, and saturation current from 200 to 2060 mA dc. Coupling is less than 4% with 1mm of spacing between components. The recommended footprint is .070 (1.78) by .120 (3.05) by .130 in (3.3mm). Operating temperature is -55 to +125°C.
