EMICON-FUN! “Characteristics of Murata's Compact, High-Current Metal Alloy® Power Inductors [Basics]”


  • Handles countless applications requiring high reliability (from automotive devices to industrial machinery)

Using the Metal Alloy® core, our proprietary techniques provide high quality, high reliability, and high durability. Additionally, using low-core loss materials achieves higher circuit efficiencies.


By expanding the size ranges of conventional product variations, we have made it possible for our inductors to be deployed in a wide range of situations, from the large-size DFEG/DFEH series of Metal Alloy® inductors used in automobile powertrains and safety applications, to the compact DFE252012P series of Metal Alloy® inductors used in infotainment systems, parking assistance cameras, and the like.
The DFEH series features an operating temperature range*1 of up to 155°C.

(*1: Includes self-produced heat)


These inductors can be used in medical devices as well, which demand the same high level of reliability as automotive applications.
