(Abracon), a leading global manufacturer of frequency control, signal conditioning, clocking and magnetic components, announces the ASPIAIG inductor series designed for automotive, industrial, and other high grade applications. The high performance shielded surface mount (SMD) inductors featuring high current density are ideal companions to switch mode power supply ICs in applications requiring extreme durability and reliability such as automotive body electronics and comfort system, infotainment, navigation, transportation, LED lighting ballasts, solar power inverters, and industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

The full series is Automotive AEC-Q200 certified, supports -40℃ to 125℃ operating temperature range, and offers both low and standard profile form factors. Built using TS-16949 qualified production line and featuring PPAP level 3 support, the ASPIAIG inductors meet next gen DC/DC converters and switch-mode power supplies requirements with excellent size to power density tradeoffs.

ASPIAIG-H6530 and ASPIAIG-H8540 are optimized for compact and low profile applications requiring low DC resistance (DCR), high energy density and high saturation current while maintaining high inductance. Using an advanced Fe-base metal material and wire-wound construction these inductors meet high reliability requirements. The ASPIAIG-H6530 is available with a low profile 7.1 x 6.5 x 3.0 mm package and ASPIAIG-H8540 in 8.8 x 8.5 x 4.0 mm. Inductance values range from 0.22uH to 33uH. The family offers saturation currents as high as 32A with guaranteed 3.5mOhms DCR at 25℃. Shielded construction reduces EMI.

ASPAIG-S6055 and ASPAIG-S8050 are available in 6.0 x 6.0 x 5.5 mm and 8.0 x 8.0 x 5.0 mm dimensions, respectively. Inductance values range from 1uH to 470uH. The family offers saturation currents as high as 16A with guaranteed 24mOhms DCR at 25℃. Shielded construction reduces EMI.

“High power switch mode supplies require ever smaller form factors while increasing current handling capabilities,” says Juan Conchas, Director of Marketing for Abracon. “Achieving advanced performance while also meeting automotive qualifications makes these devices ideal for demanding high performance power supply applications.”

“These inductors meet the reliability, durability and wide operating temperature demands of automotive and industrial applications,” comments Syed Raza, VP of Engineering for Abracon. “With a wide selection of surface mount devices offering low profile or compact form factors, these series enable optimal selection for each application.”

The ASPIAIG series of inductors are available off the shelf and offered through Abracon’s franchised distributors.

Abracon announces ASMPH family of compact multi-layer chip inductors for power applications

AUSTIN, TX. (19 January 2017) Abracon, LLC. (Abracon), a leading global manufacturer of passive & electromechanical timing, synchronization, power, connectivity and RF components announces the ASMPH family of miniature multilayer power inductors for use in small form factor or battery powered solutions. The compact size, high self-resonant frequency (SRF)  and high efficiency, makes these inductors ideal for DC/DC conversion in space limited designs, including IoT and wearables. Standard operating temperature of -40°C to 85°C and robust construction is ideally suited for industrial applications. Constructed using low loss ferrite material, these inductors support high-speed switching frequencies used in power supply controllers in advance-miniaturized applications.

This family of power inductors offers multiple footprints and inductance tradeoffs. The space saving ASMPH-0603 footprint is 1.6×0.8×0.8mm with current ratings from 1250mA to 300mA and inductance values from  0.22µH to 2.2µH. With inductance values up to 4.7µH, the ASMPH-0805, ASMPH-0806 and ASMPH-1008 offer current carrying capabilities up to 1500mA, enabling a wide range of DC/DC power supply applications.

“Small form factor solutions benefit from the use of DC/DC power conversion,” comments Syed Raza, VP of Engineering with Abracon. “Switch mode, unlike linear power supplies, can remain efficient while operating over a wide input-to-output voltage conversion range, extending battery life. This family of miniature inductors from Abracon are instrumental in miniaturizing these designs.”

“These inductors hit the sweet spot of size, inductance, current carrying capability and maximum DC resistance enabling miniaturization.” states Juan Conchas, Director of Marketing for Abracon. “In conjunction with Abracon’s other product lines, these inductors address Abracon’s strategy of providing solutions across multiple technologies for growing applications such as IoT and wearables.”

Other applications for this series of product include medical monitoring, portable instrumentation, drones, robotics, battery powered equipment,  asset tracking devices, wireless connectivity modules and power supply modules.
