Subject: Power Inductor Derating
Derating criteria for inductors seems to vary depending on who's doing the derating and their reference guidelines, except that they all seem to include temperature as a criterion. So my question is if you have multiple derating criteria (say current and temperature) and you don't satisfy the first criterion but you do satisfy the temperature criterion, are you adequately derated?
