Power Inductor for Critical Applications

ST550PRT, ST563PRC feature excellent current handling for a part this size; low DCR.
  • Shielded power inductors.
  • Tin-silver over copper. Other terminations available at additional cost.

Request Quote:
This series provides greater current handling capability than any other power inductor its size. While requiring only one square centimeter of board space, this inductor can handle up to 36 Amps of current.

These shielded inductors were developed for multi-phase voltage regulators and are ideal for use in DC-DC converters, battery-powered devices and high current power supplies. Their flat wire construction ensures very low DC resistance and offers an excellent performance-toheight ratio. The materials used in these parts eliminate all thermal aging issues.

The ST550PRT is a high efficiency part that features very low core loss. The ST563PRC provides soft saturation and is unaffected by part temperature up to 125°C.

Refer to the comparison curves for L vs Current and ESR vs Frequency for performance differences.

  1. When ordering, please specify termination and screening codes: e.g. ST563PRC232MLZ.
  2. Inductance measured at 500 kHz, 0.1 Vrms, 0 Adc using a Coilcraft SMD-A fixture in an Agilent/HP 4284A LCR meter or equivalent.
  3. SRF measured on an Agilent/HP 8753ES.
  4. DC current at 25°C that causes a 30% (typ) inductance drop for ST563PRC and 20% (typ) inductance drop for ST550PRT from its value without current.
  5. Current that causes the specified temperature rise from 25°C ambient. This information is for reference only and does not represent absolute maximum ratings.
