Mouser Electronics has announced the immediate availability of the award-winning TAIYO YUDEN MCOIL Metal Power Inductor, a new series of coil components that use magnetic metallic materials. A recipient of the Hearst Electronic Products’ 2012 Product of the Year Award, MCOIL inductors use a new type of magnetic core, permitting handling of higher current levels than other power inductors of their size.
TAIYO YUDEN’s inductor series combines performance with a compact form factor which makes them suitable for use as choke coils for power supply circuits in compact mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet PCs.
The two product classes of the MCOIL series, wire-wound chip power inductor MAMK 2520T2R2M (inductance value 2.2µH, saturation current 2300mA), and metal core SMD power inductor MDMK2020T2R2M (inductance value 2.2µH, saturation current 2000mA), combine with TAIYO YUDEN”s advanced process technology to achieve the best-in-class DC bias characteristics in the industry, as well as size reduction.
Electronic Products 37th Annual Product of the Year Awards for 2012 were announced in the January 2013 issue of the magazine. The editors evaluated thousands of products launched in 2012 to select the winners. The winning products were selected on the basis of innovative design, significant advancement in technology or application and substantial achievement in price and performance, according to Hearst Electronics Group.
