MANSFIELD, Mass., 30 June 2011. Murata Power Solutions in Mansfield, Mass., is introducing the 2700 and 2700T series of low-profile surface-mount power inductors for use in applications that require low component height, such as handheld equipment and notebook computers. The 2700 series inductors measure 9 by 7.7 by 1.65 millimeters, and offers inductance values from 4.7 to 1000 micro Henrys (uH) and a device-dependent maximum DC current as strong as 1.6 amps. DC resistance values range from 0.1 to 14 ohms for the 1 milli-Henry (mH) part.
The slightly smaller 2700T series power electronics devices provides inductance values in the range 1 to 330 uH and with a maximum operating current as strong as two amps. DC resistance in these power conditioning devices is 80 milli-ohms for the 1 uH part and increases to 15 ohms for the 330 uH inductor.
The 2700/2700T series operate in temperature from -40 to 125 degrees Celsius. Custom inductance values of either series are available. The inductors come in tape and reel for high-volume automated surface mount assembly. The device's peak reflow solder temperature is 260 C per J-STD-020D.
