Perllo Technologies LLC and ECM Electronics Ltd. announce the release of the new environmentally friendly ECxxC series of lead-free power inductors for introduction into the North American Automotive Market. With current handling ranges of up to 10 Amps, and inductance ranges of 1.2 �H to 1.5mH, the series was developed to assist power supply engineers with designing more power-efficient circuits in applications where reliability is a requirement. Potential applications in the automotive market include power supplies, Anti-lock braking systems, LCD displays and DC/DC Converters.

The low-voltage, high-current inductor is ideal for switching power supplies and portable electronics due to the manner in which the magnetic component collects, filters, and smoothes AC ripple current in DC circuits. The low-profile design minimizes board real estate requirements, maximizes power density while providing excellent co-planarity, and reduces failure modes often found with plating and solder-terminated wires and leads.

The core material is not susceptible to thermal aging and provides a Mean Time To Failure (MTTF) of greater than one million hours of operation. Also, this inductor series is very low-profile in relation to its current handling capability. It is ferrite-shielded making it perfectly suited for such applications where, due to the broad frequency range of operation, high "Q" inductors are not desired. Currently available in physical sizes as small as 6mm x 6mm x 2.8mm, the ECxxC lead-free device utilizes a 180�C (Class H) insulation system and is ideal for operating in environments with a -40�C to 85�C temperature range. �We feel that the new ECxxC extension to the established EC series of inductors is a real breakthrough. The ECxxC allows for better re-flow solderability and higher current handling capability than other low-profile solutions. �The series� high operating temperature and excellent shock and vibration tolerance make it suitable for automotive, industrial controls, and other extreme environments,� explains Dan Weaver, Power Magnetics Product Manager for ECM Electronics Ltd.
