BEC responds to shortages with miniature power inductors
Material shortages are badly affecting the availability of surface mount power inductors, said BEC Distribution as it announced that they are now part of the company’s Alternatives range, with lead times of five to seven weeks.
BEC’s Select range of miniature power inductors offers alternatives to Murata’s DFE252012P, Taiyo Yuden’s MAMK2520T, Eaton’s MPI2512V2, Weurth;s 74404024xxx and Vishay’s IFSC1008ABER series.
The miniature power inductors provide a high current carrying capacity within a compact standard 1008 (2520 metric) footprint of 2.7 x 2.2mm. Other surface mount footprints are available, said BEC. The inductors have a rugged construction and are magnetically shielded with low EMI. They meet AEC-Q200 Grade 1 (-55 to +125 degrees C) and they are also available to meet automotive specifications AEC-200 Grade 1 qualified (-55 to +125 degrees C ambient).
Other passive products affected by the shortages are high current power chokes and chip inductors, common mode chokes, LAN magnetics and LAN transformers, BEC added.
BEC is a distributor of a large range of electronic components and can offer quality alternatives to major brands for what is believed to cover up to 95 per cent of all passive components including TOKO / Murata, Sumida, TDK, Coilcraft, Cooper, Molex, Bourns, Tyco, Vishay, Weurth and Panasonic.
BEC is also a franchised distributor of transformers, resistors, terminal blocks and a range of connectors.
