What are planar inductors used for?

Planar inductor, which does not require conventional winding, consists of planar coil and two magnetic films which sandwich the coil. Design parameters have been obtained for four types of planar inductors, hoop type, spiral type, meander type and closed type.

What is the power rating of a pl140 planar inductor?

  • Planar inductors are low profile and have exceptional current handing capability. The PL140 Series power rating of 140 Watts is based on full bridge or half bridge switching at 100 kHz.

What is a planar coil used for?

  • Planar coils are mostly used in high frequency applications and designed as tracks on a circuit board. What is an air core inductor? An "air core inductor" is an inductor that does not depend upon a ferromagnetic material to achieve its specified inductance. Some inductors are wound without a bobbin and just air as the core.

What is the power rating of the Coilcraft pl160 planar transformer?

  • A detailed discussion of planar transformer design can be found in the manual for the Coilcraft Planar Prototyping Kit. The PL160 Series has a power rating up to 220 Watts in an active clamp forward, push-pull, full bridge or half bridge topology switching at 200 kHz.
