AVX Corp. has expanded its line of thin film, multi-layer organic (MLO), and broadband wire-wound conical inductors to include a new series of shielded and non-shielded SMD power inductors. Designated the Lmax series, these inductors feature a wide inductance range, low DC resistance, and the high current values necessary for industrial applications. The new, RoHS-compliant inductor series is suited for a broad range of consumer and industrial power applications, including test and measurement and industrial process control. They are also specified for use in DC/DC converters, switching regulated power supplies, mobile phones, and computers, as well as other peripheral and telecommunications equipment.
Lmax Series power inductors are currently in production, and samples are available by request.
