Flat screen TV inductor question.

    I parted out a flat screen TV, I pulled an inductor off a board. The
    inductor is about 3" long and an inch in diameter. It is wound with a
    litz type wire and the value is 5.6uH.
    I'm curious, what was the use of this coil. It seemed to carry a
    pretty heavy current, because it was mounted with 4 pins on each end and
    all four pins were connected to the litz. Also the solder joints to all
    the pins were over heated.
    So, in what circuit would this be used.

    Thanks, Mikek
     
  2. The trick is to keep the boards intact until you need the parts, then the
    context helps reveal information about the part.

    I have boxes of boards, I'm just curious about the use of this
    physically large inductor.

  4. But if you have the rest of the board, that might give an indication.
    WHere it sits might be a a broad giveaway, to narrow things down.
