Coilcraft has launched an all-new Power Inductor Finder web tool that allows users to quickly find and compare inductors based on their exact operating conditions: current, ripple, frequency and ambient temperature. Combining elements of several other popular tools on the site, the new Power Inductor Finder instantly calculates core and winding losses, computes temperature rise, and plots L vs. I curves for up to six parts on the same graph.
The 2014 Mobile World Congress that was held from 24 to 27 February in Barcelona is billed as an industry-defining event; though the pace at which the mobile telecommunications industry continues to evolve makes the accurate definition and prediction of trends and especially their timescale for implementation a difficult task. However, having all of the major players under one extensive roof offers the opportunity to take stock, gauge opinions, talk to innovators at the forefront of technology and hopefully be able to see the wood for the 4Gs (or is that 5Gs now?).
