Würth Elektronik iBE, subsidiary of Würth Elektronik eiSos and component specialist for the automotive industry, is bringing a new SMT-capable storage choke into the market. This is pick-and-place and reflow-capable.
WE-FLAT-I flat wire power inductor is a storage choke with low DC resistance, high current rating, high saturation current magnetization and has operating temperature ranges from -40°C to +150°C. A narrow air gap in the leg reduces the stray field. With its low, compact construction, the component offers excellent planarity and three-point attachment to the board.
The component, which is manufactured according to ISO/TS 16949 and AEC-Q 200-certified, is suitable for automated assembly and is good for applications like buck converters, boost converters, flyback converters and EMC filters.
