Dc-dc converter suits mobile appsTDK Electronics has introduced three surface mount power inductors, suitable for dc-dc converter usage in mobile applications.

The company's latest line of power inductors, spearheaded by the VLF5014, provides a substantial size reduction whilst offering higher current handling. It has a mount area of 4.5-by-4.7mm, with a maximum height of 1.4mm. When combined with the functionality of higher current handling, the product is ideally suited to power LED flash driver circuits, for use as flashlights in mobile handsets.

The VLF5014 is particularly applicable to the LED flash dc-dc converter for the higher power LEDs of 1.2A or greater. The VLF4014 and VLF3014 have a mount area of 3.5-by-3.7mm and 2.6-by-2.8mm, respectively. Both have a height of 1.4mm. All inductors benefit from high magnetic shield construction, actualizing high resolution for EMC protection.

The latest range of VLF Power Inductors offer a generic use for portable dc-dc converters in addition to application support for products including DVCs, DSCs, PDAs, HDDs, cellular handsets and LCDs. These inductors are fully RoHS compliant.
