Comparing Iron, Alloy, Amorphous Powder Core just in few seconds and three steps get the best design in PFC, LLC, LCC. Of course, you can do it yourself, but if your time is more valuable, why not to save this treasure.
The power inductor is made by magnetic powder toroidal core with winding , also call DC-Choke, Power-Choke, sometimes depends on the circuit position is named PFC Choke, Inverter Choke, Buck or Boost Choke.
When the power is transferred more and more, the inductor current will change from discontinuous conduction mode to continuous conduction mode, and then the effect of this DC-Bias Current are going to derating the permeability of any magnetic alloy materials core.
How much of the inductance value is gone by the DC-Bias current ? That is the major problem of every engineers when the power choke is designed. Our App offers the visualized user interface, which deals with this issue and avoids the boring calculation process over and over again, allows you to find the best design factor working on the circuit just in few second, even compares each other with the second source.
The famous manufacturers of alloy powder core including CSC, Micrometals, KDM, Doungbu, POCO, DMEGC and Magnetics, all of them have been supported, and the permeability range are extended from 14µ to 300µ, so there are over than 210 types of core materials, that can be choose right now.
It will be more and more when the new version are going to release. Welcome to recommend any materials that you have often used, let us have the opportunity to make this App better. Thank you very much !
What's new in v2.8
1. As more and more supply chains are leaving China, recommend the other local alloy core manufacturer, such as "Karson" in Taiwan.
