The TechForum Cross Reference category is for parts that Digi-Key does not sell or parts that have gone obsolete. Our Engineers and Techs have reviewed the specifications for these parts and made a recommendation for a replacement. Please review the suggested part to ensure it will work for your application.

If you are looking for the XAL4040 series of high current shielded power inductors, the manufacturer recommends the following alternative options.

For XAL4040, See XGL4030 for height saving by 1 mm, improved efficiency due to low DCR (up to 25% lower) and wider inductance range (0.13 to 12 uH)-Coilcraft

Inductance (µH) XAL4040 Series (Not Available) XGL4030 Series (*Available)
XAL4040/XGL4030 Datasheet Datasheet
8.2µH/8.2µH XAL4040-822ME_ XGL4030-822MEC
10µH/10µH XAL4040-103ME_ XGL4030-103MEC
15µH/µH XAL4040-153ME_ N/A

For the XAL4040-153ME_ Coilcraft carries XGL4040-153MEC which is equivalent or better than XAL4040-153ME_ except that the Isat rating is slightly lower. If your system can handle the Isat difference then it would work as an alternative.
Example Part Number:





Three digit induction code. The first two are significant. The last one is the multiplication factor (the number of zeroes).
8.2µH = 8200nH = 82 significant with two zeroes = 822


E = RoHS compliant tin-silver over copper.
Special order: T = RoHS tin-silver-copper (95.5/4/0.5) or S = non-RoHS tin-lead (63/37).


C = 7″ machine-ready reel. EIA-481 embossed plastic tape. Quantities less than full reel
available: in tape (not machine ready) or with leader and trailer ($25 charge).
D = 13″ machine-ready reel. EIA-481 embossed plastic tape. Factory order only, not stocked
