SMD power inductors enable longer battery life in portable electronics

August 26, 2013 // By Jean-Pierre Joosting
Laird has released the TYS Series of SMD power inductors for use in voltage conversion applications such as DC-to-DC power converters.

DC-to-DC power converters can increase the voltage from a partially lowered battery voltage, thus saving space by using fewer batteries for portable electronics including mobile phones, digital cameras and GPS units. The TYS Series is designed for use in these DC-to-DC power converters and ensures that the flow of electricity is one-directional. The inductors offer lower power losses, resulting in a more efficient design than competitors.

These power inductors are low profile with a miniature size. They offer higher inductance and current rating than traditional drum core series inductors. They are also AEC-Q200 qualified, meaning they are approved for use in automotive by the Automotive Electronics Council.

The TYS Series power inductors offer a high performance and reliable solution at a low competitive cost. Laird is able to keep costs low by utilizing an automated manufacturing process which also ensures consistent quality.
