Inductor Basics – Selecting Parts by Core Material and Shape

Webinar, September 28, 2023

As advances in material science continue to progress, inductor technologies have diversified into a wide array of competing options.  For the engineer, this means more time needs to be spent deciding passive devices, taking time away from the more critical systems of their project. Many inductor manufacturers offer custom magnetics, but the engineer still needs to work through the various design options to help develop an overall solution. Once this has been decided, board layout, sizing, and testing still will have to be done to confirm the initial solution. 

In this seminar, YAGEO Group aims to remove the burden of complexity in selecting inductors. Join us as we refresh old techniques, decipher technology language, and build on our understanding in selecting parts. YAGEO Group offers a plethora of different inductor materials such as nanocrystalline, molded composite, drum core, and more. With our solutions, we can begin to paint the whole picture of how magnetics are used in different applications, and why that particular technology is ideal for a given solution.

By the end of our seminar we will leave our guests with the tools to empower design choices as they pertain to applications requiring magnetic solutions.

In this webinar we will cover:

  • Pros & Cons of different inductor core materials
  • Pros & Cons of different inductor core shapes
  • The influence of inductor wire size & shape
  • How to best select an inductor for your application

Note: If you can't attend the live webinar, be sure to still register as we'll send you the recording afterward!
