Coupled Inductors –MSD1278T Fowrwhwi.gDhattaeSmhepete4rUa.ctuomre
The MSD1278T series of coupled inductors was de-
signed for high temperature applications – up to 125°C.
The excellent coupling coefficient (k ≥ 0.94) makes it
ideal for use in SEPIC applications. In SEPIC topolo-
gies, the required inductance for each winding in a
coupled inductor is half the value needed for two sepa-
rate inductors, allowing selection of a part with lower
DCR and higher current handling.
These inductors provide high inductance, high effi-
ciency and excellent current handling in a rugged, low
cost part. They are well suited for use as VRM induc-
tors in high-current DC-DC and VRM/VRD controllers.
They can also be used as two single inductors con-
nected in series or parallel, as a common mode choke
or as a 1 : 1 transformer.
