Soft Ferrites

Overview

With our original powder mixing techniques, powder process techniques and annealing techniques, Hitachi Metals provides soft ferrite products having excellent magnetic properties. These products contribute to downsizing, weight reduction and higher efficiency for passive components of mobile device and various devices such as for industrial equipment, xEV, etc.

Features

Although saturation magnetic flux density of soft ferrite materials is lower than other soft magnetic materials, soft ferrite materials have high electric resistance and therefore have outstanding magnetic properties at high frequencies.
Soft ferrite materials can be shaped in various geometry and used for wide range of applications.

Hitachi metals have various ferrite materials.

Mn-Zn Ferrite

Mn-Zn soft ferrite cores for high frequency power suppies MaDC-F

Magnetic Domain Controlled – Ferrite

MaDC-Fseries realized high-performance low core loss ferrite cores in high frequency operation using magnetic domain control technology.

With optimized of main compounds mixing ratio and trace additive elements, and combination of sintering process based on hysteresis analysis, eddy current loss analysis and the original annealing technique, we make Magnetic Domain Control (which derive the name “MaDC” from), and realize low core loss ferrite materials.
