What is improved in the common mode filter ?
Higher permeability
Increase coupling between windings
 the differential mode impedance is decreased
Reduce the size of the toroid and/or the number of turns of winding
 less DC resistance
 cheaper BOM cost
Larger bandwidth
Extended dumping bandwidth
Lower electric losses
Better frequency stability
Lower signal distortion
Tighter inductance tolerances
Less variation due to external stresses from winding and potting
Better predictability
 More robust process and improved repeatiblity

We can observe that despite 3E6 higher initial
permeability , from 300 kHz upwards, thanks to 3E10
better stability with frequency, extended impedance
bandwidth and higher amplitude are achieved

Less influence of winding and potting operations on permeability
Broad damping characteristics
Better process control thanks to the improvement in impedance stability
with frequency and tolerance reduction

3E12: 20% permeability rise
Permeability in product increases up to
20% compared to 3E6 and market
equivalents
Property
Permeability
3E12
12000 ± 30%
Reduction of negative impact of high number of turns like DC
resistance and parasitic capacitance
Higher permeability leads to core size or number of turns reduction
 Cost savings either in ferrite material or in copper

In all cases we observe similar

Range in 3E10 & 3E12
Standard cores in 3E10 and 3E12 are
all toroid´s tools from 2.5mm to
63mm
Rings are the optimal shape in high permeability to
reduce leakage losses
Gapped shapes reduce effective permeability, therefore the
advantages obtained for these shapes in 3E10 and 3E12
materials are negligible
However, shapes can be manufactured in these materials upon
request

Applications
The main applications are interference suppression and wideband
transformers:
Wideband transformers  Impedance transformation over a broad
frequency range. Applications include impedance matching, voltage or
current transformation, DC isolation, balanced/unbalanced mixing,
power splitting, coupling, and signal inversion. Telecommunications
devices
Pulse transformers  Communication systems and digital networks
Ground fault interruptors (GFI)  Home and industrial
Interference suppression  Common mode choke. Mains filters in all
type of electronic equipment.
