App note: Power-handling capabilities of inductors

App note from Coilcraft on how to calculate the power dissipation of an inductor. Link here (PDF)

Inductors are not typically rated by power, however an approximation of the power-handling capability of an air core or ceramic core chip inductor can be estimated using the data sheet specifications for current and resistance.
