Worlds Smallest Power Inductors from Wurth Hit Digi-Key Shelves

THIEF RIVER FALLS, Minnesota, USA - July 9, 2014

Global electronic components distributor Digi-Key Corporation, the industry leader in electronic component selection, availability and delivery, today announced stock of Wurth Electronics' WE-MAPI series, the smallest metal alloy power inductors available in the industry.

The New WE-MAPI inductors from Wurth are equipped with a magnetic iron-alloy core material, which allows for high rated currents in an ultra-compact design. The saturation current of the WE-MAPI is four times greater than other components of similar size; this along with very low DCRs allow for optimum efficiency in high switching frequency DC/DC converters (>1MHz). Interference noise does not occur since the casing is compressed from a single piece.

Other features of WE-MAPI inductors include low acoustic noise and low leakage flux noise, with industrial operating temperatures of -40 °C to 125 °C. These innovative components find application in numerous industries, including digital cameras, graphics cards, battery powered devices, and power supplies, among others.

More information, as well as current stock and product selection, can be found on the Digi-Key website.
