Product range of PQ cores extended

TDK-EPC, a group company of TDK Corporation, presents its extended range of EPCOS PQ ferrite cores. With the newly added core sizes PQ40/40 and PQ50/50 the full range of PQ cores is now covered between the sizes PQ16/11.6 and PQ50/50. The PQ cores have been developed in particular for transformers in switch-mode power supplies.
