White Paper Overview

Power inductors are a basic component used in many signal and power conditioning applications to attenuate, block, filter, or store energy. The increasing high powers and switching frequencies used in today’s power circuits are imposing market challenges to component manufacturers in both the materials and packaging levels, pushing power inductors to a much higher rated current while fitting in ever-shrinking form factors.

This article by TAIYO YUDEN discusses how improvements in metal-based power inductors meet today’s changing market requirements of power inductors.
