Power Cube Metal

Inductors for High Current with Low DC Resistance

The requirements in the automotive area as well as for server and telecommunication applications increase in terms of higher current and performance improvement. TDK extends the Power Inductors product portfolio with the new PCM120T series which meets these needs.

The typical fields of use include primary DC/DC converters in automotive applications such as ADAS, power supplies for servers and base stations as well as various types of DC/DC converters. The PCM120T components are also perfectly suited to interference suppression, for example of electric motors in vehicles.

The Power Cube Metal inductor is a perfect choice if a high saturation current up to 80 A and a low RDC is needed.
