Taiyo Yuden Introduces Lower Profile Power Inductors with DC Bias Characteristics
Taiyo Yuden introduced its new NRS6010 (6.0 x 6.0mm, with a maximum height of 1.0mm) and NRS5012 (5.0 x 5.0mm, with a maximum height of 1.2mm) wire-wound power inductors featuring thinner profiles and superior dc characteristics. The NRS6010 and the NRS5012 are the latest addition to Taiyo Yuden’s "NR" line of wire-wound inductors.
The NRS6010’s rated current 1.0A (dc bias allowed current at an inductance of 10µH), and the NRS5012’s rated current of 3.1A (dc bias allowed current at an inductance of 2.2µH) can manage high currents, achieving what the company says is the best dc bias characteristics in the industry.
Designed for use as choke coils in dc-dc converters for slim, compact digital devices, the NRS6010 is ideal for LED backlighting for notebook and netbook PCs. The smaller NRS5012 is suitable for devices such as hard disk drives smaller than 2.5" and for compact digital still cameras.
The NRS6010 and the NRS5012 sample price is $0.30/unit.
