IATF 16949:2016 is a quality management system specifically designed for the automotive industry. Developed by the International Automotive Task Force (IATF), this standard is based on the ISO 9001 standard but includes additional requirements specific to the automotive industry. The regulation applies to organizations that produce parts, assemblies, and components for the automotive sector.
Basics of Inductors
Inductors are used across many industries to store energy, regulate the flow of current, and create impedance. Circuits require different types of inductors as well as core and winding styles to perform optimally in a given application. Understanding inductor properties is the best way to determine which materials and shapes are best suited for your needs. This blog post will discuss the [...]
10 Factors to Consider When Specifying a Custom Power Inductor
Power inductors can be used to filter the current or convert the Voltage and current to a different Voltage and current. Applications range from small electrical appliances to large power grid systems. Inductors consist of wound conductive metal coils that generate a magnetic field when electricity flows through them. Inductors are essential in any application that needs to carefully control [...]
Chokes vs. Inductors: What's the Difference?
Numerous technologies rely on chokes or inductors to deliver, alter, and filter electrical current. Understanding the difference between chokes and inductors is essential when designing devices and machinery that rely on electrical power. These electrical components each suit specific applications.
Basics of Inductance
Joseph Henry and Michael Faraday, working separately and on different continents (Henry in America, Faraday in England), simultaneously discovered the principle of electromagnetic inductance, the ability of an electrical conductor to generate electromotive force when the current running through it is changed, in the 1830s.
