Power-handling capabilities of inductors

App note from Coilcraft on how to calculate the power dissipation of an inductor. Inductors are not typically rated by power, however an approximation of the power-handling capability of an air core or ceramic core chip inductor can be estimated using the data sheet specifications for...

App note: How to use power inductors

A great guide from TDK about power inductors used in DC-DC converters. As electronic devices become more advanced, the power supply voltage of LSIs used in them is lowered, so their power consumption can be reduced and their speed increased. However, a decrease in the power supply...
