In the EVM datasheet schematic, two input beads and 2 output beads are used.

In my application, I drive 56V 5A COB LED. Input voltage is 22-50V, so input current can be ~6-13A. I read on Internet, that beads saturate and lose their filtering efficiency, so, it is better to use beads with current ratings 3-4 times higher. How can I implement such filter, as in the example in the datasheet? There are no ferrite beads with current ratings higher than 11A.

You can use several beads in parallel. The current capability is multiplied, and inductance is fraction of one bead.

  • \$\begingroup\$ To use with 13A I will need to be (as was suggested 3-4x) at 40A, so, I will need 4 10A beads in parallel for positive and for negative, a lot of parts. Is there a different way? \$\endgroup\$ – Roman Simonyan Apr 22 '19 at 14:22
