LMR33610: Inductor Selection, what I_out(max) value used for calculation

Part Number: LMR33610
Other Parts Discussed in Thread: LMR33630, , TPSM33615


As I review the inductor selection calculation I don't get the 8.1uH found on the datasheet. With Vin=12V, Vout=5V, K=0.3, f_SW=400KHz. It appears the calculation was done with a I_OUTmax = 3A, however the part is rated for a max 1A output. Was the calculation done assuming the 3A variant (LMR33630) of the regulator?
