Abracon Announces Availability of its Power Inductor Solutions Guide

(March 29, 2017) Abracon, LLC. (Abracon), a leading global manufacturer of frequency control, signal conditioning, clocking and magnetic components, announces availability of the power inductor solutions guide. Critical within switch-mode power supply (SMPS) circuits, DC-DC converters and passive filtering applications, power inductors are required in power supply applications where linear regulators cannot be used. SMPS devices rely on the inductor as the primary energy storage element that enables high efficiency power delivery, reducing heat losses and increasing output power rating.

Abracon provides a variety of solutions including ceramic chip inductors, wire-wound and molded SMD inductors, high power toroid and high power drum inductors. With its breadth of products, Abracon power inductors support a wide variety of applications including IoT/wearables, battery operated and portable, industrial, medical monitoring, medical imaging, networking, point-of-load (POL), RF and communications, lighting and instrumentation.

“One size does not fit all,” says Juan Conchas, Director of Marketing for Abracon. “This solutions guide helps customers select the right inductor for each application.”

“Abracon offers so many varieties of magnetics technologies that it’s important to develop resources that help customers through the design cycle,” comments Syed Raza, VP of Engineering with Abracon. “Whether a customer needs a compact chip inductor for IoT or wearables or a high power toroid for LED lighting ballasts, Abracon can deliver the right inductor.”
