High-Performance Power Inductors Reduce DC Resistance by Up To 40%

April 07, 2020 by Paul Shepard

Coilcraft's new XGL4030 Series of high-performance, molded power inductors offer up to 40% lower DCR than the previous best-in-class inductors as well as extremely low ac losses, resulting in the best overall efficiency over a wide range of ac ripple current. They are designed for dc-dc converters with switching frequencies ranging from hundreds of kHz to 5MHz and above.

The XGL4030 features an expanded inductance range, including 18 values from 0.13µH to 12.0µH, with current ratings up to 26.5 Amps and soft saturation characteristics. It also offers a 30% increase in Irms self-heating current, allowing the XGL4030 to operate much cooler than previous-generation components.

XGL4030 Series inductors are qualified to AEC-Q200 Grade 1 standards (-40° to +125°C ambient) with a maximum part operating temperature of +165°C and exhibit no thermal aging issues, making them suitable for automotive and other harsh-environment applications.
