Selecting Surface Mount Inductors for DC-DC Converter Applications

In response to interest in switching converters, silicon IC manufacturers have widened their portfolio of ICs to support different conversion topologies, input to output voltage requirements and output current capabilities. With the software design tools which accompany these ICs most designs can be rapidly turned into a schematic with simulation plots, PCB layout and Bill of Materials (BoM) – including the required inductor – by almost any designer, whether they previously considered themselves a power supply expert or not.
