High-frequency low-loss ferrite -Monday, April 16, 2018
TDK Group recently introduced a new type of EPCOS manganese-zinc (MnZn) based PC200 ferrite magnetic material with high frequency and low loss characteristics. The magnetic material is developed specifically for power supplies and frequency converters (with GaN-based fast switching power semiconductors) and has an optimized frequency range of 700kHz to 4MHz. When the switching frequency is from 1.8 MHz to 2 MHz and the operating temperature is 100°C, the maximum transmission power can be achieved. The maximum Curie temperature of the ferrite magnetic material is 250 °C.
