Design Tools

Magnetics® design tools assist engineers in optimizing their Magnetics components.  Targeted to specific applications, each software package offers a core selection routine and contains online Help to guide design engineers through the selection and optimization process.  Additional references are included to assist with more involved designs.

Select the titles below to run an individual program.  If problems arise, please contact a Magnetics Application Engineer for assistance.

Inductor Design

Filter.jpgFeaturing Magnetics Kool Mµ®, MPP, High Flux, and XFLUX™ powder cores, this design utility aids in core selection for DC output inductors, input chokes, PFC (Power Factor Correction) inductors, high current inductors, and other energy storage devices. Design inputs include DC current, ripple current, full load and no load inductances, and more.  Designs are simulated and modeled while providing the designer with complete wound core dimensions, estimated core and copper losses, temperature rise, and more. In addition to toroid shapes, an expanded range of material shapes are included such as Kool Mµ E Cores, Kool Mµ U Cores, and Kool Mµ segmented toroids.
