MSP cores with a linear loop for transformers and chokes of isdn networks

It is well-known fact that pulse transformers and interface matching chokes for digital communication networks must have high values of magnetic permeability serving at the same time maximum possible DC bias. Traditionally, Mn-Zn ferrite was used as the main magnetic material for pulse transformers and interface chokes. However, due to low permeability and respectively low impedance it is difficult to achieve small sizes of products. If the growth of impedance is achieved by a winding turns number increase, the frequency characteristics will deteriorate: the parasitic capacitance will increase and the resonance frequency will decrease. As a result, it is difficult to ensure compliance with the ITU-T I.430.

In this regard, MSTATOR specially developed a series of high-permeability MSP magnetic cores with the possibility of DC BIAS or without it. The products are made of thin (25 µm) amorphous Co-based ribbons and provide small overall dimensions and excellent quality characteristics of pulse transformers, as well as chokes for all ISDN interfaces: S2m, S0, Up0, Uk0; Best for xDSL technology and data line chokes..

Configuration represents a ribbon wound magnetic core placed into the hard protective glass-polyamide mechanically fixed container with silicone sealant.The container has rounded edges and is designed for winding. The container provides a reliable mechanical protection and a preservation of amorphous material's properties. All materials comply with UL94V-1/0.
