It's a technical term. Not to be well defined by looking in a
general-purpose dictionary. Definition #1 above is the real thing.
VanNostrand's Scientific Encyclopedia:
[formed] by fusion of ferrous oxide with the appropriate basic oxide,
hydroxide or carbonate, e.g. calcium ferrite, barium ferrite, magnesium
ferrite, ferrous ferrite, sodium ferrite."
some Google search results, my summary:
Ferrites used in the electronics industry are more exotic, such
as manganese-zinc ferrite, nickel-zinc ferrite, strontium ferrite.
