SMD Power Inductors

Power Inductors: Everything You Need to Know

The purpose of power inductors is to reduce core losses in an application that requires voltage conversion. This electronic component can also be used in a magnetic field created by a tightly wound coil to receive or store energy, reduce signal loss in a system design and filter EMI noise. The unit of measurement for inductance is the henry (H).
