Source: TDK TDK Corporation has unveiled the TFM160808ALC thin-film inductor for power supply circuits, which features a maximum DC resistance of 62 milliohms that is 30 percent lower than for existing types (e.g. TFM160808ALM, 0.47 µH).

The new inductor, which measures just 1.6 mm x 0.8 mm x 0.8 mm, also offers a high rated current of 2.6 A and an inductance of 0.47 µH. In addition, thanks to the newly developed metal core, the thin-film inductor features lower losses. As a result, the component's efficiency over a broad output current range of 10 mA to 2.5 A is higher than that of existing types.
