Low-profile power inductor from Stackpole

Stackpole Electronics Inc. has expanded its non-shielded power inductor offering, which previously focused on high-power and high-saturation devices, with the low-profile MPE and MPI series inductors that are suitable for space-constrained applications. Instrumental in protecting sensitive components from damaging overcurrent conditions, power inductors are used in many CE applications and around I/O ports.

The MPE series offers a low profile of 1.2mm and is capable of handling currents up to 1.4A. The inductance range is 1-68?H. The low profile makes it suitable for handheld electronics devices such as PDAs, camcorders, digital cameras as well as LCD televisions.

The low-profile MPI series is available in three heights from 1mm to 2mm. This series features a rugged enclosure making it suitable for environments up to 105C, which is said to be well above the capabilities of standard power inductors, while providing excellent pick-and-place surface for automated mounting.

The MPI power inductors are available in inductance values from 1-1000?H, and are rated up to 2.5A. The low profile makes the MPI inductors suitable for portable electronics, while the wide inductance range and current handling meet the demanding requirements of desktop computer applications.

Available on tape and reel packaging, typical pricing for the MPE series is around 27 cents each and approximately 24 cents for the MPI series. Delivery is eight to 10 weeks, with samples available in three to four weeks.
