A Quick Guide To Ferrite Bead Inductor

Electronic circuits ‌make use of ferrite bead inductors for filtering purposes. These inductors are made of ferrite bead, a choke used to minimize or eliminate high-frequency electromagnetic interference and generate a clearer signal in a circuit. It works similar to a low-pass filter that allows only low-frequency signals to pass through a circuit. When these … Read more

Ferrite Magnet – Is It The Right Choice For Your Industrial Applications?

Ferrite Magnets, also known as ceramic magnets, are a suitable alternative to natural magnets. These magnets are used in electronic devices & industrial applications across the world. They are found in over 70% of all the products that require a magnet for smooth operation. Two common reasons for their growing demand are cost-effectiveness and superior … Read more

What are Magnetic Plates? Types and Applications

Magnetic Plates are separators used to extract ferrous particles and small tramp iron, such as nuts, bolts, nails, bits of wire, etc. from free-flowing materials to protect the machinery from any potential damage. They help to enhance the production process by removing these particles. These plates can be installed in ducts, sputs, feed trays or … Read more

An Ultimate Guide on Ferrites – Types and Applications

Ferrites are magnetic materials that are considered better than pure metals because of their wide range of properties, such as low cost, high resistivity, easy manufacturing, and superior magnetization. They are widely used in radar, audio & video, memory cores of computers, microwave devices, and satellite communication. Their high electrical resistance and low eddy current … Read more

Semiconductor Materials- Types & Properties

Semiconductors are those substances whose electrical conductivity lies in between conductors and insulators. In terms of energy band, the valence band is almost filled and conduction band is almost empty. Further, the energy gap between valence band and conduction band is very small. The semiconductor has filled valence band, empty conduction band, and small energy gap … Read more

Recombination & Trapping Processes in a Semiconductor

Recombination and trapping processes in a semiconductor Recombination is the process where an electron moves from the conduction band into the valence band so that a mobile electron-hole pair disappear. Classical mechanics requires that momentum be conserved in an encounter of two particles. Since the momentum is zero after recombination, this conservation law requires that … Read more

Magnetic bubbles – Applications

Magnetic bubble memory consists of magnetic bubbles used to store data bits. These bubbles move in thin films of magnetic material. The bubbles are cylindrical magnetic domains having polarization opposite to that of the thin film in which they are embedded. A thin film of magnetic garnet contains wavy strips of magnetic domains when an … Read more

Soft and Hard Magnetic Materials

Soft Magnetic Materials These materials are easy to magnetise and demagnetise. These materials favour rapid switching (it means high frequency) of magnetism to applied ac field. These materials have low retentivity. Low coercivity. High permeability High magnetic saturation Low hysteresis losses because of the lesser area of the hysteresis loop. These materials are used for … Read more
