ITG Electronics, a leading manufacturer of inductors and transformers in business since 1963, now offers a range of Nanocrystalline Common Mode Chokes which deliver higher power ratings in a small size.
Nanocrystalline material gets its name from its production process. A stream of molten metal is rapidly cooled and locks in the amorphous high energy structure. The resulting material consists of crystals with a grain size on the nanoscale (10-100nm).
Nanocrystalline core chokes are optimal for a wide range of applications for both commercial and consumer electronics. Its high permeability allows for fewer turns to achieve the same inductance. This enables nanocrystal cores to boast a much lower DCR (Direct Current Resistance) than Ferrite core materials. A lower DCR means higher efficiency and lower power loss.
