SRN8040 Inductor - Overview
The SRN8040 semi-shielded construction provides a wide range of inductance value from 0.5uH to 100uH with high rated current up to 10A. It uses ferrite core and enameled copper wire coated with Magnetic Epoxy resin. The inductors also provide low DCR value and high saturation current (inductor value will decrease by a maximum of 30% at saturation current).
It is easy to solder, durable, and robust to be used in power-related applications. The electrical schematic is shown in the below image-
It is a single coil semi-shielded inductor that has two terminals for connection.
How to Choose Desired Inductors for Your Application?
Often, the power driver IC provides detailed inductor specs that are available in the IC datasheet for selecting the right inductor. Generally, in CCM (Continuous conduction mode), the higher value inductor is required than the DCM (Discontinuous conduction mode). The SRN8040 series offers inductor values from 0.5uH to 100uH.
The next step is to determine the inductor current. Inductor offers two types of the inductor current, RMS current and saturation current. RMS current is the equivalent DC current that will pass through the inductor. It is important to select larger Irms inductors than actually required.
The saturated current is the limit when the inductor will saturate and the inductor value will drop significantly. However, saturated current Isat will always be larger than the Irms of an inductor.
The SRN8040 provides a current rating of up to 10A. Below table will be useful to check the detailed spec of different inductors in SRN8040 series-
